It can be viewed as 'modern mechanical engineering design' in the sense that the design of the mechanical system must be performed together with that of the electrical/electronic and computer control aspects that will comprise the complete system. Affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) Belagavi, approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) the department of Mechatronics at Acharya Institute of Technology offers undergraduate program. Introduced with an initial cohort of 60 students, the program has been oversubscribed since its inception in the year 2009.

The department has distinguished and highly qualified faculty members, specialized in the latest areas of Mechatronics Engineering which include, Machine Design, Advanced Materials, Robotics, Automation, Instrumentation and Communication so on. The department benefits from state-of the art research laboratories and facilities on campus. The students of MTE have performed exceptionally well in campus placements of reputed industries, such as ASAHI, WEP, INFOSYS, ABB, BOSCH, TOYOTA, HYUNDAI, CTS and others. The department is passionately involved in hosting many additional software and hardware training programs for students as per industrial requirement. The department conducts technical workshop, conference, national and international level technical competitions. Social activities to involve and train the students to grow in all the aspects under department forum “RENAISSANCE” are organized.

Biomedical Signal Processing and Control aims to provide a cross-disciplinary international forum for the interchange of information on research in the measurement and analysis of signals and images in clinical medicine and the biological sciences. Emphasis is placed on contributions dealing with the practical, applications-led research on the use of methods and devices in clinical diagnosis, patient monitoring and management.
Nowadays, considering the development of the industry, a trend towards automation of working cycles and supporting the users has increased strongly. Hydraulic systems have been considered as the potential choice for modern industries ranging from heavy-duty manipulators to precision machine tools because of their advantages such as durability, high productivity, efficiency, power weight ratios, controllability, accuracy, reliability, energy efficiency of hydraulic power systems has been particularly important in Hydraulic power technology and there is a vast research scope for improving the efficiency of hydraulic power system used in industries and all kinds of mobile machineries such as construction, agricultural & forestry machines etc.
Rapid prototyping technique that produce shaped parts by gradual creation or addition of solid material, therein differing fundamentally from forming and material removal manufacturing techniques. which can produce metal parts by electro deposition using an electrolyte jet. The calculated results verify that electro deposition occurs selectively at the spot where an electrolyte jet is impinged. Rapid prototyping (RP) technique which read in data from computer-aided design (CAD) drawings and manufacture automatically three-dimensional objects layer-by-layer according to the virtual design.
Flexible and accurate process automation systems are critical to the profitability of processing and manufacturing operations. Developing applications for monitoring and controlling the plants can be difficult, because testing the applications in actual plants is expensive and dangerous. System designers often rely on simulation to validate their solutions before implementation. Industrial control system (ICS) is a general term that encompasses several types of control systems used in industrial production, including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, distributed control systems(DCS), and other smaller control system configurations such as programmable logic controllers (PLC) often found in the industrial sectors and critical infrastructures. Modern distributed control systems (DCS) offer advanced control and monitoring functionality. Math Works software for multivariable control, PID control and neural networks help automation system designers develop these modern applications by providing a flexible desktop prototyping environment.
Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) find significant applications in almost all industrial sectors. Particulate reinforced Al-alloy composites exhibit improved wear resistance when compared to the un-reinforced one. The research works are focused on the synthesis and mechanical and wear characterization of aluminium alloy MMCs. The studies carried out till now were on Al 6061 reinforced with tungsten carbide(WC) and Graphite(Gr) hybrid MMC.
Shape memory materials are subset of a larger collection of ‘smart’, or ‘active’, materials. Smart materials include certain types of alloys, polymers, and gels that can respond by changing material properties to various external stimuli such as light, magnetic fields, or heat. Shape-memory materials are stimuli-responsive materials. They have the capability of changing their shape upon application of an external stimulus. Composite materials involving shape memory materials are shape memory composites. Studies have been taken up on the development of constitutive models, fabrication, testing and characterization of Shape memory composites.
A major challenge in the semiconductor field is, therefore, the ability to manage the heat in the IC chips without compromising the performance of the device. This management of thermal energy is crucial because heat has many detrimental effects on the device. When a certain upper critical temperature is reached, important parts of the device may cease to function. The potential issues and investigate the process line to utilizing the Phase Change Materials (PCM) as thermal energy storage for free cooling/heating, ventilation, solar power generation etc. During these years, researchers have tried to find new way to develop energy storage system. Using nano technology to increase the heat transfer shows great opportunity in storage system. Because of low thermal conductivity of PCM, nanotechnology is considered to enhance thermal characteristics with substantially higher conductivities. The main objective of this study is to analyze the effect of nanoparticle volume fraction on the (a) temperature difference, (b) melt fraction, and (c) required cooling period by numerical analysis and experimental validation of Nano Composite PCM.
