Mechanical Engineering

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 and one of the most preferred one by the engineering aspirants.

Mechanical Engineering Department was established in the year 2002 and affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi, Karnataka.

The department offers undergraduate, Post graduate and Ph.Dprogrammes. Undergraduate course in Mechanical Engineering. Postgraduate courses are offered in Machine Design and Product Design & Manufacturing. In addition to this MSc by research and Ph.D courses are offered for those who are working in institution and industry through Research and Development center recognized by Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi, Karnataka.

Laboratories in the department are well equipped to facilitate the conduction of experiments prescribed in the curriculum and also to carry out the research work. Some of the research facilities like, Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer (DMA), Optical microscope, 3D printer, and Hydraulic press etc. are utilized by MSc and Ph.D research scholars of our institution and other institutions.

The department is continuously organizing the industrial visits, seminars, technical talk and placement training for the benefits of the students.

To develop globally competent mechanical engineers capable of working in an interdisciplinary environment, contributing to society through innovation, leadership and entrepreneurship.

• To excel in teaching, research and innovation of products and processes.
• To promote collaborative activities to contribute to the societal needs.
• To imbibe leadership and entrepreneurial qualities.
