Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices to large systems. The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed. One skill that is the mechanical engineer’s exclusive domain is the ability to analyze and design objects and systems with motion.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering, headed by Dr. H.K.Govindaraju, was established in the year 2002-03 with an approved intake of sixty students. The Department consists of twenty efficient faculty members of which five are Doctoral members. All the faculty members are well experienced and research oriented. Presently many of the faculty members are pursuing their doctoral degrees. All the laboratories are furnished with state-of-the-art equipment, licensed software and IBM PCs. The Department is consistently achieving good results over the years. Many of the students are placed in MNCs and other core companies.
The Department is recognized as a research centre by VTU under which eight research scholars are working in various extents of engineering.
The Department also offers a post graduate course in MACHINE DESIGN - established in the year 2014.

Machine design is a specialization in the field of mechanical engineering that focuses on the development and design of components, mechanical devices and other equipments. Other aspects include the improvement of current designs as well as the creation or alteration of new and existing manufacturing systems. Graduates make use of ANSYS and MATLAB; along with various other modeling and simulation tools to develop components and systems. Mechanical Designers have various skills ranging from conceptualization of design as well as intuitive knowledge and familiarity of manufacturing methods.
