Department of Mechanical Engineering

Department Overview

The Department of Mechanical Engineering currently offers a UG programme with an intake of 120 students and a PG programme in Machine Design. This field of engineering emphasizes Design, Materials & Manufacturing, Thermal Engineering as well as interdisciplinary areas such as CAD/CAM/CAE, Automation, Operations Research, Mechatronics, FEM, managerial aspects of industry and much more.

Faculties frequently participate in seminars and conferences. Students are encouraged to present papers, participate in technical quizzes and other co-curricular and extracurricular activities. All students receive personalized attention, with intensive coaching modules for slow learners, and extra encouragement for potential rank holders. We get the best of VTU results with 100% success rate in many subjects.

Accreditation, Approvals and Recognition:
The Department of Mechanical Engineering is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), and is permanently affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belgaum in Karnataka.



To emerge as the leading mechanical engineering education centre of learning, by providing value-based education and hands-on skills required to pursue career opportunities in areas such as research and development, manufacturing and entrepreneurship.



The Department of Mechanical Engineering seeks to realise its vision with a mission to:

M1Maintain sufficient laboratory facilities to supplement the knowledge gained in classroom learning, through the conduction of hands-on experimental investigations.

M2: Establish and retain a strong teaching staff, consisting of a balanced mixture of resources from industrial, academic and R&D background.

M3: Engage inter-departmental collaborative activities through interdisciplinary student and staff projects, funded projects, technical workshops, conferences, FDPs and the like.

M4: Associate and partner with industries through consultancy, student internships and student project activities, with an objective to the holistic development of student and staff.

M5: Create mechanisms to understand and address societal needs and provide solutions for the betterment of the rural and agricultural community.


Programme Education Objectives

Upon completion of the four-year mechanical engineering program at CMR Institute of Technology, our students should:

PEO 1: Be able to demonstrate an ability to quickly learn and engage oneself in a work force consisting of engineers from other disciplines, skilled and semi-skilled human resource in various engineering streams such as automotive, aerospace, manufacturing & production, as well as engineering services.

PEO2: Be able to demonstrate knowledge, application skills and leadership qualities in industries concerning product design, manufacturing and engineering services.

PEO 3: Be able to demonstrate creativity and innovativeness and be able to contribute to society through the pursuit of life-long learning and remaining abreast of technological progress.

PEO 4: Be able to pursue higher education in India or abroad, succeed in competitive exams like IES, GATE, GRE and GMAT.
