Department of Mechanical Engineering

Department Overview

Mechanical Engineering is one of the most sought-after disciplines in the field of engineering. This programme applies the principles of Engineering, Physics, Mathematics and Material Science to design, manufacture, test and maintain mechanical systems. Graduates get to maintain and manufacture machines so as to deploy these to solve real-world problems. The stream is custom-made for those with an inquisitive mind and with a keen interest in designing and maintaining machines.

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