About Us

The Department of Foundry Technology was established in the year 1996 to cater the man power and R & D development to local foundries. The need for-specialized foundry technicians was felt in late 1990's when the small and medium foundries in Coimbatore started coming.


The mission of Department of Foundry Technology is to expose students to industrial requirements by:

  • curriculum development for fostering industrial needs
  • inspiring students towards higher education
  • encouraging students to be entrepreneurs
  • undertaking industrial projects


Department of Foundry Technology aspires to accomplish national recognition in the field of foundry and materials engineering by imparting technical skill sets to students and industries for development of society.
