MECHANICAL ENGINEERING -> Overview

The Mechanical Engineering Department has carved a niche for itself by offering the most competent instructional program to under graduate students leading to BE degree. The Department is one of the first three that started functioning in 1962; the faculties are all well qualified and experienced. The Department is offering M.Tech, programme in Machine Design from the academic year 2013-2014.

Department is well equipped with dedicated faculty, department focus on research in the field of design and analysis of machine elements, composite material technology and vibration analysis and machine vision system. The quality of teaching and training has yielded high growth rate of placement at various organizations. Large number of candidates pursuing research programs (M.Sc/Ph D) and department providing consultancy for research facility available in the department. Department is recognized as Research Centre by V T U and Mysore University offers part time and full time Ph.D. Programs.

Vision

"Be a department well recognized for its ability to develop competent mechanical engineers capable of working in global environment"
