About Conference

National conference on Automation,Materials and Energy (NAME 2020) aims to bring researchers, academicians, practicing engineers and industrialists to a common platform which provides an opportunity for researchers to exchange ideas in recent advances on various aspects of theory, analysis and experimentation in various fields of Aeronaitical and Mechanical Engineering.

The Institution

Rajalakshmi Engineering College, an autonomous institution affiliated to Anna University, Chennai, was established in the year 1997 under the aegis of Rajalakshmi Educational Trust whose members have had consummate experience in the fields of education and industry. The College has grown from strength to strength in the last 20 years and progressing towards Excellence in Engineering Education, Research and Development. Started with 3 Under Graduate programmes in Engineering with an annual intake of 180 students in 1997, the College presently offers 13 Under Graduate and 10 Post Graduate programmes, with an annual intake of 1950 students. The approval of AICTE and affiliation of the Anna University for such a progressive intake is a standing testimony for the continuous growth of the college over the years. 9 of our Departments are recognized as Research Centers of Anna University to conduct Ph.D. and M.S. (By Research) programmes and many scholars have obtained Ph.D. through these research centres.

Ours is one among the few Colleges to receive accreditation for nine Under Graduate Engineering programmes from the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), New Delhi, as soon as attaining the eligibility to apply for accreditation. The College is accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) with 'A' Grade. The college has also secured 12(b) status from UGC

The Department of Aeronautical Engineering

The Department of Aeronautical Engineering at REC is making great effort in imparting Knowledge and skill to meet the expectations of aircraft industry. The Department offers one bachelor degree in Aeronautical Engineering and one master’s degree in Avionics. The department of Aeronautical Engineering started functioning since 2005. NBA has accredited the department. The department has well-equipped laboratory facilities and faculty to prepare the students to meet future requirements in the field of aviation. Currently, the faculty members and students of the department are involved with research in the areas of high-speed jets and aero- acoustics and composite materials.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering established during 1997, offers both UG and PG programs. It has been recognized as Research centre by Anna University for collaborative research programme which leads to Ph.D. degree by research. The department has been re-accredited by NBA for three years and it has well experienced faculty members with a blend of industrial and academic exposure. The department is actively involved in research and consultancy work from various funding agencies like DST, UGC, GTRE, etc.
