The department is established in the year 2010 with an intake of 60 and increasing to 120 in 2013. The department is headed by Prof. A.Nagendra. Mechanical Engineering is a fast growing discipline in tune with the demands in the areas of infrastructure and Manufacturing. The department has well equipped laboratories as per university norms with an emphasis on practical approach and skills. The department has well qualified and dedicated faculty. Of the many engineering disciplines, mechanical engineering is the broadest, encompassing a wide variety of engineering fields and many specialties. Although it is commonly assumed that Mechanical Engineers are automotive engineers and Manufacturing Engineers in fact, Mechanical Engineers are employed in an enormous range of technical areas including: acoustics, air-conditioning, automatic controls, Engineering Design, computer-aided design, energy management, fluid dynamics, tribology, robotics, biomechanics, and turbo machinery, Nanotechnology etc. Mechanical Engineering is a challenging, rewarding, and highly respected profession. The goal of the Mechanical Engineering department is to prepare students for entry into the Mechanical Engineering profession, and is designed to meet a carefully planned set of educational objectives. We strive to prepare our students for good employability in the area of Mechanical Engineering. Technical Association ‘MACHINE’ is established with its main objective to explore new areas of Research and latest technologies in industry. To fulfil this objective a series of technical workshops, seminars, technical fests and guest lectures are being conducted every year. The students are encouraged to present papers and participate in various technical events at national level.
