Department of Mechanical Engineering


Inauguration of “LabVIEW Academy” on 18.2.19 – A Part of DST -FIST in collaboration with National Instruments , Bangalore. 

Department of Mechanical Engineering


The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2006.The Department has a team of dedicated, well qualified and experienced faculty which includes professors to provide in depth knowledge and training in the field of Mechanical engineering covering energy, thermal, design, manufacturing, industrial management, and to expose to the latest research, development and techniques so as to cater to the growing needs of the Industries and to mould the students. The department offers an under graduate program B.E.( Mechanical Engineering) and a post-graduate program M.E. (Thermal Engineering).


Mechanical Engineering involves the design, manufacture or operation of any product or system that moves and uses or produces energy. As a mechanical engineer, the knowledge and skills of the students will be applied from design right through to product usage. Mechanical Engineering programme integrates theory with practical learning through design projects with industry partners, solving real-life problems, providing first-hand insights into complete design cycles in commercial enterprises, and linking you to industry even before graduating. The versatility of Mechanical Engineering opens up a wide array of career options, from the traditional aerospace, automotive and manufacturing industries, to robotics, biomedical technology, energy systems and sustainable technology.

The department has well experienced and dedicated faculty members with many active researchers with active involvement in R & D projects. All the laboratories in the department are well equipped to carry out the experiments of both UG/PG programmes. Many of the faculty members have presented their research papers in International conferences.

The department has also developed good contacts with reputed core companies and many students take up their internship training / project works in these companies. The department organizes many training/faculty development programmes for the faculty/technical staff and students periodically. Invited lectures from renowned personalities are regularly arranged for the benefit of the students and staff members of the department. The department encourages the faculty and students to attend conferences, workshops and other training programs to enhance their technical skills. The students of the department are well placed in many of the reputed companies throughout the world.
