Mechanical engineering is the oldest and core branch among all branches. In the growth of technology the contribution of this branch is enormous over the centuries. This branch has wide scope and its scope varies from material science, machinery development, smart material, nanotechnology, missile technology, CAD/CAM/CAE, FMS, CIM, automation and such other inter related developments. This course requires strong computational mathematics, creativity analytical skills.
The areas of study includes heat and mass transfer, refrigeration and air conditioning, manufacturing processes, mechatronics, design of machine elements, CIM, mechanical vibrations and robotics. The areas of studies include various subjects concerned to design, thermal, manufacturing as important streams of this course. The department of mechanical engineering started in the year 2010 with an intake of 60 students. The department is affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum from its establishment. Faculty consists of teachers who are constantly engaged in updating themselves through QIP’s, deputations, undertaking consultancy and research work of original nature and subsequent publications.
