Greetings from Rtn. Ponnuchamy
Secretary
Theni Kammavar Sangam College of Technology
Theni 625 534
Tamilnadu, India

It is important that our researchers in the fields of engineering and technology publish their research readily on a regular basis. This will help transfer of knowledge and skills from teaching and research institutions to manufacturing companies. Ultimately such transfers will help common people who would enjoy the benefits of such transfers in products and services extended to them. I wish great success to the journal of Engineering & Technology in India www.engineeringandtechnologyinindia.com



The next issue (the issue of March, 2016) will be uploaded by the second week of March, 2016 or earlier.

No new materials can be added once the article is published. Please ensure that when submitting your work names of all authors are included. No addition of author/s after formatting of the article is done and sent to the author/s is allowed. Please avoid including Bibliography. Instead, please include only a List of References of all works cited within the text, including Internet sources. Please follow the generally accepted standard style sheets adopted in engineering and technology print journals. But you need to restrict yourself to one style within your article. Standardization has become very difficult because Indian universities are still in the process of evolving a common style for their research publications. Readability and easy cross reference for future research should guide our authors in choosing an appropriate style in a consistent manner.
