The department was established in the year 2004 with full fledged teaching faculty and supported by experienced technical staff. The members of the staff of the department work with full dedication keeping the students interest in mind. The well equipped laboratories & devoted efforts by the staff have always reflected in the good performance of our students in university exams.
The infrastructure in the department include Basic Workshops, CAED lab, Material Testing Lab, Foundry & Forging lab, Measurements & Metrology lab, Machine Shop, CAD/CAM lab, Fluid Machinery lab, Energy Conversion lab, Design Lab and Heat Transfer lab. All the labs have state of art equipments of world class.
CAED lab was established in the year 2006-07 where the conventional drafting is made easier using the software Solid Edge.The CAD / CAM laboratory provides practical training to the students so as to develop skills in Drafting, 2D & 3D Surface and Solid modeling and Analysis as per the syllabus prescribed by the VTU.The lab is equipped with Pentium – IV computers with latest configuration and is fully networked with adequate UPS back-up facility. All the software’s are licensed and are being upgraded so as to keep pace with changing technologies. Here the students are exposed to the latest mechanical software’s like AutoCAD, Ansys, Solid Edge and other manufacturing simulation software’s. Machine shop which is an integral part of the department has a good collection of the state of art Machines to meet the cutting edge technology requirement. Energy Conversion Lab is one of the important organs of mechanical department with good facilities. The lab resources include the infrastructure as prescribed by the university. One can carry out research in various fields of energy conversion and heat transfer.
Mechanical Department aims to provide quality education with a strong foundation in fundamental principles of Engineering, blended with professional and ethical responsibilities for the betterment of the society as a whole.
“The Mechanical Engineering Department strives to be recognized globally for outstanding education and research leading to well-qualified engineers, who are innovative, entrepreneurial and successful in advanced fields of engineering and research”.
