Mechanical engineering is a broad engineering discipline that incorporates skills and expertise in the areas of design, manufacturing, mechanics and thermal sciences that are essential to most sectors of industry. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
"To develop globally competent mechanical engineers capable of working in an interdisciplinary environment, contributing to society through innovation, leadership and entrepreneurship.”
"To impart quality education in the field of mechanical engineering by inculcating values to serve the needs of the society and industry by aiding in overall progress and development."
The department of Mechanical Engineering, initiated in 2002 offers undergraduate and postgraduate programs. It is also a recognized
Research Center under the Visvesvaraya Technological University. The Department of Mechanical Engineering provides a lot of opportunities
for the students to interact with outside world and is known for its student projects, which are presented to the public at the annual
‘Yantrostav’, the Project Exhibition. Research projects strap up state-of-the-art experimental, theoretical, and computational approaches
in training students and advancing the frontiers of technology. The researchers enjoy access to leading edge facilities, work closely with
vibrant, highly-qualified faculty, and benefit from strong interactions with industry. Students gain valuable experience working with
professional engineers on important projects; access to industry sponsors, and hands-on knowledge in product design.
Our faculty is professionally active and well-recognized. Faculty in this area investigate interactive instructional techniques and the resulting benefits for students, engineering diversity and inclusiveness, student retention, student motivation, the development of engineering identity, as well as how hands-on engineering education opportunities .Our outstanding faculty who address critical issues facing our world today, produce groundbreaking research, and are the leaders and innovators in their respective fields. Another striking aspect is the organization of workshops, Seminars, Expert lecturers, Group discussions, Competitions, sports and other activities for the all round development of the aspiring students. The department has an excellent academic track record; many of the students are placed in reputed companies like, Infotech, Infosys, Dell, Tech Mahindra, Wipro, Accenture, Merchant Navy, Kean India, Vijay Electrical Pvt ltd, Shoba Developers and Hyundai Motors.
