Department Of Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2009. The department has grown leaps and bounds since then. Mechanical Department has its own block housing all the laboratories, workshops, and lecture halls and staff rooms. It has student strength of 400 with an annual intake of 120. The department is well equipped with state- of- the- art laboratories, workshops & infrastructural facilities. The machine shop has a CNC lathe besides conventional lathes, milling machines, drilling machines, etc. The department has excellent computational facilities and resources both in terms of hardware and software’s.

The department has faculty members from all specializations of mechanical engineering namely Thermal, Design, Manufacturing and Management. The faculty members are not only qualified but also have good experience in teaching and research. The supporting staffs are qualified, experienced, and skilled.

BThe department also offers an M.E program in Manufacturing Engineering from 2012 with an annual intake of 18. This specialization is first of its kind under VTU.

Highly experienced and capable staffs impart knowledge to the best of their abilities to ensure that both theory and practice are blended to make the learning process complete. Some of the major equipments in the laboratories:
