The Mechanical Engineering Department started with the inception of the college in 1996. The department offers Undergraduate, Post graduate and Research Programs. Department is conducting full time post graduate program in Thermal Engineering. Mechanical Department has been approved as a Research Centre by Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum to offer Ph.D. programs in the year 2014. It has well equipped Laboratories with state-of-art equipments and infrastructure facilities in thrust areas. Department has a total investment of Rs.1.3 crores.
The mission of the department is to educate students to become globally competent. The Department of Mechanical Engineering shares the vision and mission of the institution in imparting quality education to the students.
The department has an intake of 120 and total strength of 550 students. Mentorship concept is introduced in the department to monitor their performance and guide effectively by periodic counseling. The students of the department are well placed in industries and have established themselves as successful engineers since many years. Apart from the achievement in the academic performance the students of our department have presented papers in various National
level competitions and brought laurels to the college by winning the awards. Several students’ projects have won National/State/Intercollegiate awards for their projects in competitions held at different organizations. Students have also qualified many national level examinations such as GATE and are very well placed in National and Multi-national companies. Quite a few of them have pursued higher studies in India and abroad. Mechanical Department students visited many Industries for industry orientation. More students undertook internship trainings in reputed companies. Students participated in various sports & cultural activities together with some important technical events. The department alumni students are extending guidance and support in guest lectures and placement.
The department has a committed, highly experienced and motivated team of faculty members. All the staff members are postgraduate and have been serving in the institute since more than ten years. Many faculties of the department are undergoing Doctoral programs. Faculty members regularly attend technical seminars and workshops organized by various technical institutes, and many of them have presented papers in National and International conferences and seminars. An association of Mechanical Engineering students and staff has been constituted in the department named AIMSS and is involved in arranging expert lectures, co-curricular and extracurricular activities.
The department received a grant of Rs. 20 Lakhs by VGST during the year 2013-14 for the research work on “Study of performance characteristics of IC engines through computerized data acquisition system including exhaust gas analyzer to suggest best alternative fuel”. One week Short Term Training Programme was organized by the department on the topic “Computational Fluid Dynamics” sponsored by ISTE-SRM, New Delhi with a grant of Rs. 1 lakh in the same year. Several students’ projects have been being funded by KSCST, ISSRD, VGST and other private bodies in the region.
The department of Mechanical Engineering has MOUs with 15 leading & reputed industries of Karnataka & Maharashtra states. The department has professional body membership with ISTE and arranges the activities under the banner of ISTE. The department has well stacked library with 2000+ text and reference books for the students and staff fraternity.
Mechanical engineers provide efficient solutions to the development of processes and products, ranging from small component designs to extremely large plant, machinery or vehicles. They can work on all stages of a product, from research and development to design and manufacture, through to installation and final commissioning.
Most industries rely on a form of mechanical systems and mechanical engineering is thought to be one of the most diverse of all engineering disciplines. There are employment opportunities available in a wide range of sectors, such as the manufacturing, power, construction, etc. Mechanical engineers can also be involved in the management of people and resources, as well as the development and use of new materials and technologies.
