Mechanical Engineering Department started with inception of the college in 2010, to provide world-class under-graduate and graduate engineering education. The curriculum includes the courses like Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Strength of Materials, and Heat Transfer Manufacturing, Mechanical and Thermal Design, Finite Element Analysis, And System Dynamics. Students acquire knowledge through various engineering electives with advanced topics including, fracture mechanics, composite materials, combustion, internal combustion engines, mechatronics, and mechanism design. The structure of the program includes laboratory experiments with respect to the academic syllabus, in which students go through a live experience with advanced hardware, software, and experimental techniques. The laboratory experience reinforces content presented in courses and provides students with an opportunity to involve themselves individually with the support of faculty and technical support staff. The Department started Masters programme (Master of Technology) in “Engineering Analysis and Design” in the year 2012 which is another step in climbing the ladder .Conferences, Workshops, Seminars and Industrial visits are part of the program which happens periodically in enhancing the knowledge of the students with an exposure to industrial environment. The Department has also proved its capabilities by guiding students with live projects which are also sponsored by Institution of Engineers.

Major Thrust in the course
☛Computer aided Engineering and Machine Drawing for drafting field level drawing.
☛ Engineering Mathematics, Strength of Material, Design of Machine Elements and Theory of Machines, Finite Element Method, Vibration, Composite Materials and Manufacturing Technology for design, analysis and production of mechanical components
☛Optimize a plant layout, manufacturing process, quality process in industry by using quality techniques like JIT, Kaizen, PDCA, SQC and SPC
☛Management and Entrepreneurship skills for setting up small scale industries leading to self-employment.
☛Thermodynamics, Heat and Mass transfer, Fluid mechanics for analysis and understanding various power generation and energy conversion units.
☛Mechanical engineers will be found in virtually any manufacturing industry. Increasingly, mechanical engineers are needed in the environmental and bio-medical fields. Indeed, virtually every product or service in modern life has probably been touched in some way by a mechanical engineer.
☛The Central and State Governments are recruiting Mechanical Engineers in large numbers, particularly in Defense, Railways, Military, and Indian Engineering Services. Nearly 12% of the central budget is reserved for military purpose. This opens up avenues for Mechanical Engineers to join DRDO, HAL, NAL and other organizations of national importance for a lucrative career and job satisfaction.
☛The government also encourages young researchers in mechanical field to develop alternate energy sources.
☛Several opportunities are available in industry for Mechanical Engineers at various functional areas viz., production, quality, design, and marketing.
☛Mechanical Engineers are also acceptable in emerging fields like Robotics, MEMS, Mechatronics, and Nano materials.

Department Forum [MECHTRIX]
The department had inaugurated the Logo of Mechtrix Forum by our beloved principal Dr. S N Shridhara on 13th September, 2011. This program was arranged along with fresher party; welcoming the first year students. The Forum aim is to support students with skills enabling them to be productive in Co-Curricular activities, the “MECHTRIX” was inaugurated on 23rd February, 2011. Our Beloved principal Dr. Sridhara S N inaugurated the forum.
Our faculty actively pursue work in professional practice, research and service projects, and participation in publications, and presentations of papers at professional meetings. The results of participation in these activities have contributed.
