Theory Session consists of Principle of IC engine, Basic Components of Engine, Basic Nomenclature, Classification of Engines Operation inside the engine, Basics of Power transmission Spark Plug and fuel injector, Introduction to Alternative fuels, History of automobile, engines, classification. Working cycle, strokes (2 stroke and 4 stroke), Engine Classification - fuel, stroke, CC, arrangement of pistons etc., Components of IC engine, functions, materials, Diesel engines v/s petrol engines, Real time working - animations. It is followed by hands own session on 4 stroke Bajaj pulsar DTSI engine dismantling and assembling as a team of maximum 8 members. Each participant involved in hands on session with so much interest and enthusiasm. The workshop concluded at 4.30 PM
One of the main attractions in the Tech fest was the thrilling bikes stunt. It is done by Team DBZ sponsored by Dept of Mechanical Engineering on 28/04/2023 at 4.00 PM. Riders with specially designed bikes, exhibited their dare devilish skills in the college. The stunts lasted for 1.5 Hours, during which different drifting, wheeling and other risky stunts
One of the games organized by Dept of Mechanical Engg. was slow cycling. It was one of the interesting game session of the Tech fest and total 40 participants performed in slow cycling.

Arjun Raveendran KAP, Deepth purushothaman, Manas PK and Abhijith KM of Department of Mechanical Engineering have done an excellent project work with social commitment. The hydraulic lift which is used to lift the buses at KSRTC Payyanur depot was out of commission for the past few years. Students came up with an overhauling work to re-instate it so that now employees can perform the repair work with ease. The estimated cost to repair the same was around Rs. 5 lakhs but the students did it within Rs. 75000. The inauguration of re-instated lift is done by Shri. T I Madhusoodhanan, honorable MLA Payyanur at KSRTC depot on 24/07/21. Project was guided by Prof. Chandrajith E, Assistant Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, SNGCET and Mr. Santhosh Aithala, Assistant Depot Engineer, KSRTC, Payyanur
