Mechanical Engineering


The Department of Mechanical Engineering started in the year 2010 with an intake of 60 students. The discipline constitutes both a theoretical and practical approach with perfect management skills.

The department has well-qualified faculties having vast experience in both teaching and industry. The department has library facilities with more number of journals. Many of the staff members have represented conferences seminars & workshops at various colleges. Many of the guest lectures are held in the department to improve the methods of teaching for both students & staff.


The Department also has a Research Center recognized by VTU.


The department is located in an area of 3700 comprising Lecture halls, Departmental Library, Faculty rooms, Seminar hall, and Laboratories. The labs are well equipped with A/c facilities, with necessary new era Machinery. Each staff room has separate computer rendering e-learning. The major Laboratories are:

  • Heat & Mass Transfer Lab
  • Machine Shop Lab
  • Energy Conversion Lab
  • Metallography & Material Testing Lab
  • Design Lab
  • CAMA, CIM, CAED, CAMD Software labs.


The students of the Mechanical Engineering department have secured good results in university examinations.

  • 4 out of 6 Faculty achieved 100% Results in University Exams.
  • Shiva Prasad R (4th Sem Student) Secured 8th Place in University Toppers List.
  • T G Lochan (4th Sem Student) Secured 12th Place in University Toppers List.


    • Department has consistently secured its position as one among toppers in University Examination.
    • Department of ME is the only department in college which has more Ph.D. Candidates.
    • Department has launched a different systematic & scientific technical forum with providing awareness among the students.
    • Mr. Jithendra, ME has won a 1st prize(Gold Medal) in the VTU Intercollegiate single-zone Athletics Competitions.


  • Dr. B. M. Satish Successfully guided 02 candidates for their Doctoral degree under Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum and presently guiding 02 more candidates under the same University.
  • Six Faculties have registered for Ph.D. under Visvesvaraya Technological University.


  • In addition to leading students towards academic excellence, we emphasize on their overall development by co-curricular activities, like Mechanical Forum YANTHRIX which deals with the basic approach of knowing specifications of the engines of the vintage automobiles. Arrangements are made to Industrial visits, exhibitions (Auto-Expo) etc., The Department has organized events under the coordination of Physical education director such as:
    • Inter-Zonal Throw ball competition.
    • NSS
    • Blood Donation Camp
    • Cultural activities
