Department of Mechanical Engineering

Department Overview

Department of Mechanical engineering currently offers an undergraduate program and a doctoral program covering research areas like New and Smart materials, Renewable energy sources, Metallurgy, Kinematics and Manufacturing Sciences.

Mechanical Engineering is regarded as one of the evergreen branches of study in the field of engineering. Mechanical engineering applies Physics and Materials science principals to design, analyse, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems. It is the field that covers the design and analysis of all kinds of systems, technologies and also has its applications in energy production, environmental systems, composite materials, transportation, robotics, automation manufacturing and many more.

Skilled mechanical engineers with computer proficiency in software tools including 3D AutoCAD, Solid Works and 3D Max, CAD/CAE/CAM, heating ventilation, air conditioning and product data management are in huge demand and are offered higher salary packages by the industry.
All the faculty are engaged in research activities in the areas of Mechanisms, Metallurgy, Bio and Renewable energy sources. They regularly participate in seminars, conferences, paper presentations and various other faculty development programs.

In the academic year 2017-18 the department has established two Centres of Excellence (CoE): Metallurgical Sciences and Additive Manufacturing. The Metallurgical Sciences CoE is DST funded, while the Additive Manufacturing CoE deals with 3D printer prototypes, 3D printers, 3D printing techniques and latest 3D printing machinery and many more. Several faculty members and student groups regularly contribute to the CoEs.

The students receive personalized attention, with intensive coaching modules for slow learners, and specialised training for potential rank holders. We get the best of VTU results with 100% success rate in many subjects. Besides students are encouraged to present papers, participate in technical competitions, quizzes and many other extracurricular activities.

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.
