1st year BE classes will begin on 07/08/2017 @ 8:00 a.m.

The orientation for 1st year students and parents will be notified subsequently.

B.E | Mechanical Engineering

Course Overview

Who should study Mechanical Engineering?
If you have an interest in manufacturing, if you love doing work on engines, or if you have an aptitude for drawing then Mechanical Engineering might be your calling. In this field, you will have ample opportunity to demonstrate your skills in the lab. You will learn the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, and be exposed to diverse areas such as mechatronics, aeronautical, MEMS, automobile, etc.

What will I study in the course?
As a student of mechanical engineering, you will find yourself deep-diving into this core technical field that deals with various subjects broadly classified into the design, thermal and manufacturing streams. Students will learn CAED / CAM, knowledge of which is essential nowadays for operating conventional CNC (computer-aided numerically-controlled) machines. With an understanding of CAEM, students will be able to work on these machines. As early as the first year, students will get a real taste for the basics of mechanical engineering as they delve into 2-D drafting.

What will I do once I graduate?
Mechanical Engineering creates a base for students who aspire to lead their career in the fields of Design, Materials, Manufacturing, CAD/CAM/CAE, Automation, Mechatronics, FEM as well as managerial aspects of industry. Mechanical Engineering graduates are sought after by employers in most sectors of the Engineering industry including Aerospace, Automobile, Chemical, Construction, Defence, Industrial Electronics, IT, Materials, Pharmaceutical, Railways etc.

The majority of our students go on to pursue careers in the field, and end up working for core companies such as Bosch-Group, Ashok Leyland, Volvo etc, Companies like Sony and Amazon, although not core mechanical companies keenly look to hire mechanical engineers for specialized work. Some students also go on to pursue higher studies in the field, and research work. The opportunities for mechanical engineers are vast and exciting!

Eligibility Criteria

Candidates should have passed Karnataka 2nd PUC / 12th standard or equivalent examination recognized by AICTE and State Government in Physics and Mathematics subjects along with Chemistry / Electronics / Biology / Biotechnology / Computer Science as optional subjects and English as one of the languages of study. Students must have obtained a minimum of 45% marks in aggregate (40% for SC/ST/OBC).

Candidate must also qualify in one of the following entrance exams:


Course Structure

The course is broadly classified into three major domains: Thermal, Manufacturing and Design. The duration of the programme is eight semesters. The course deals with subjects in manufacturing and FEM applicable for all manufacturing industry, casting industry, automobile industry and aerospace applications, and offers training in modeling and finite element analysis software for thermal and fluid dynamics problems. Students will also be exposed to CFX software and CNC machining simulations in addition to the manufacture and design of components.

1st Year Common Curriculum
In the first year of this UG Engineering Course, all students are divided into two groups. One group goes through the Physics Cycle and the remaining go through the Chemistry Cycle. The subjects taught in both cycles are the same, but the order is different. Students will study a course on ‘Elements of Mechanical Engineering’ that provides a good intro to this field of study.

*Year 1 course structure shown below is for the Physics Cycle. For Chemistry Cycle, the subjects taught are the same, but the subjects for each semester are swapped. Please click here for 1st Year Syllabus.
