Dr. K.S. Vijay Sekar possesses a Doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering from Anna University specializing in Finite Element Analysis in Machining. He has secured a Master’s degree in Computer Aided Design and a Bachelor’s degree in Production Engineering  both from Madras University.

He has about 21 years of Teaching experience and 11 years of Research experience and has successfully guided more than 25 PG projects and 35 UG projects in his long stint in this profession.

He received the award for Best Faculty of SSN for the year 2014 -15 from IT Major Cognizant. He has previously received the Best Faculty Award of the Mechanical Department for the years 2014 -15, 2009-10 and 2008- 09. He received the Best Achiever Award from Hindustan College of Engineering in 2005-06.

His Areas of Research interest include studies on machinability of composite materials and super alloys and application of Finite Element tools to understand machining characteristics and optimize the manufacturing process.

He has published about 25 Research Papers in International and National Journals and his research work has been presented in about 20 International and National Conferences. He has published a Patent titled “Hydro-pneumatic bumper systems”. He successfully completed an External project on ‘FEA in composite machining using 3D modelling’ funded under RPS scheme by AICTE.

He presented Research papers  in The International Conference on Mechanical, Manufacturing and Control, ICMMC 2014 during November 21-23, 2014 in Singapore, winning the Best Oral Presentation award and the International Conference on Manufacturing and Optimization, ICMO 2012 during September 15-16, 2012, in Beijing.

He has successfully adapted 3 World class Engineering text books : Manufacturing Engineering by Serope Kalpakjian and Steven R Schmid, Mechanics of Materials by RC Hibbeler and Thermodynamics: An Interactive Approach, by Subrata Bhattacharjee from the US edition to the SI edition for the Pearson’s group based in Singapore.

He teaches Finite Element Analysis, Manufacturing Technology I and II, Computer Integrated Manufacturing and Engineering Graphics for the UG program and Automated Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems, Metal Cutting and Non Destructive Evaluation for the PG program.

He is a life member in IIE, ISTE, IACSIT, an avid reader, a music enthusiast and shares his positive thoughts concerning people, life and the triumph of the human spirit, in social media.
