About the Department


Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering, BMSIT&M. The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2002-03. The Department offers full-time UG programme in Mechanical Engineering with an annual intake of 60 students. The programme is affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belagavi and approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). The UG programme is provisionally accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), New Delhi and also Permanently Affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belagavi. The Post-Graduation in Machine Design was started during the academic year 2014-15 with an approved intake of 18 students. The Department is recognised as a Research Centre by Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belagavi where the number of research scholars registered stands at 27. Currently, the Department is headed by Dr. K. M. Sathish Kumar.

The Department's strength lies in having a good number of experienced and well qualified faculty. Department has 19 well qualified and dedicated faculty members with 12 faculty holding Doctoral Degree and 07 faculty pursuing their doctoral degree. Faculty members along with their regular academic activities also have published technical papers in quality International and National Journals and attended various International & National conferences. Faculty members have won awards, are the reviewers for International Journals, Members of LIC, BoS, BoE, DRDO Recruitment Committee and Professional societies. All the faculty members of the department will also undergo industry internships every year. Also, faculty members have authored Text Books and Book Chapters to help the student community. The Department is supported by 9 well trained technical staff. The Department of Mechanical Engineering has state-of-the-art laboratories. These laboratories not only satisfy the curriculum requirements of the students very lucidly, but also provide additional facilities to enhance the practical knowledge. Department has excellent computing facilities and resources in terms of both hardware and software.

Department of Mechanical Engineering is happy to inform that Mr. Arun D (1BY16ME010) has secured I Rank and 7 Gold medals in the Mechanical Engineering. He was topper among 14803 mechanical engineering graduated students under VTU Belagavi.

The Department has Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Industries, Research and Academic Institutes. Department of Mechanical Engineering has established a State-of-the-art Centre of Excellence in collaboration with M/s. Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd., Bengaluru. This spacious Centre consists of automobile chassis, engine and transmission systems capable of demonstrating the functioning of the various parts. The Centre has several other equipment’s totalling a value of over Rs.50 lakhs.

Department in a quest to build Holistic development among the students, various programmes were organised. Innovative teaching methods are followed to impart quality education to the students. The Department organizes Skill based workshops and Faculty Development Programs periodically. These activities will greatly benefit the faculty members to comprehend the essence of teaching and can teach very effectively and proficiently. The Department hosts and supports several activities like Project Based Learning (PBL), Interdisciplinary projects, Societal relevance projects, Skill Based Workshops, Student Internships, Industrial Visits, Partial Delivery of the curriculum by Industry experts, Poster presentations to name a few. All these activities will greatly enhance the learning ability of the students.

The students of the Mechanical Engineering Department have participated as Finalists in Smart India Hackathon, have won awards in National Level events conducted by premier institutions. The student projects received awards from KSCST Bengaluru and VTU Belagavi. Some of the projects were also funded by the Institute based on their innovative ideas. Students have participated and also won awards in Indian Karting Race, a National level event. Also, students were involved in building a Range Extended Electric Vehicle which is a Hybrid Vehicle, and many interdisciplinary projects are also being carried out. Aero Club, Robotics club and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) India Collegiate clubs are the professional clubs of the Department. Through these clubs many students have participated in the national level competitions and won awards too. Skill based workshops were also being conducted.
