Acharya Institute of Technology

Mechatronics Engineering

The department started in 2009 with offering the very first UG programme in Mechatronics Engineering affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) Belgaum and approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), with an intake of 60 students. The department hosts experienced and qualified faculty members, specialized in the latest areas various engineering disciplines such as Machine Design, Advanced Materials, Robotics & Automation, Instrumentation and communication and so on. The department also has well equipped laboratories relevant for the programme.

This programme is one of the top options for CET and COMED-K rank holders. The department is actively involved in hosting many additional software and hardware training programs for students as per industrial requirements. Department focuses on individual student to motivates and create the mindset for their success through counseling. The department conducts technical workshops, conferences, national level technical competitions, social activities etc., to involve and train the students to grow in all the aspects under the department forum “RENAISSANCE”.

The students of the department have won the Maiden Edition of Bosch-NID, INDIA changers Industrial Design Competition organized at National Institute of Design (NID) 2012, held at Bosch India, Ahmadabad. The award is constituted to encourage young designers to come up with socially relevant innovations. Also the students of the department participated in the ROBOTRYST- 2013, IIT Delhi and were ranked 07 among 320 teams from all over India.
