Professor and Head - Department of Mechanical Engineering


The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers BE in Mechanical Engineering, M. Tech in Machine Design and M.Tech in Manufacturing Science & Engineering. The department has well qualified, experienced and committed faculty to provide quality industry tuned education to the students. The Department Infrastructure fulfills the requirements of academics, supports research and learning skills on the latest technology in the industry. 

The students are molded with multi dimensional skill sets covering all the required graduate attributes. More focus is emphasized on the practical learning, projects and research. The students of the department get into the industry through placement and there is a high inclination towards entrepreneurship and research. The department is supported by a large alumni group. Students are introduced to global challenges and encouraged to take up projects in this direction.


Department of Mechanical Engineering started the Under Graduate programme in the year 1946 with an intake of 60 which increased to 100 in 2001 and to 120 in the year 2006 and 180 in the year 2014.  The Post Graduate programme was started in the year 1986 in Machine Design with 18 students.  Another Post Graduate programme in the field of Manufacturing Science and Engineering has been started in the year 2014. The department is recognized as a research centre by VTU. 

The department is adequately funded by various government bodies and supported by industries. A research grant to the tune of 700 lakhs is funded to the department by various agencies like DST, AICTE, DRDO, AR&DB etc. The department has good number of MOUs with various sectors of industry ranging from automotive to manufacturing domains. Various societies like SAE, FPSI, and ASHRAE etc. have their student chapters in the campus bridging the gap between industry and academia. Industrial training, bridge courses are conducted periodically in the department for industries such as Scania Commercial vehicles India Pvt. Ltd, FPSI etc. Department of Mechanical Engineering is accredited by NBA for 5 years on the basis of  Washington accord.
