The Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) established in 1958 has created creditable milestones, enabled success stories for its faculty and students alike, and partnered with industry and academia to innovate for social impact.

An NBA Tier-1 programme and ‘Research Centre’ recognised by the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), the department has forged industry collaborations with leading automation companies such as Bosch-Rexroth, Felsomat, Fanuc, Festo, Siemens and Christiani. Its gender diversity focus has yielded internship and placement opportunities for girl students with Mercedes Benz. Its 14 well-equipped laboratories, and 8 Centres of Excellence have spawned innovations that go beyond prototypes to become real world solutions — hub for motor sports teams, turnkey projects in rainwater harvesting for Mysuru palace, and a bio-gasification plant for Mysuru zoo to name a few. MoUs with National Entrepreneurship Network (NEN) and MSME Development Institute foster entrepreneurship and business skill development.

A highly-qualified and erudite faculty with several patents and publications to its credit nurture students to achieve excellence. For an exciting future on the edge of technology, this is the place to be!

Walking the Extra Mile

Established in 1958, the Department has continuously strived to be at the forefront of engineering education. It prides itself in implementing contemporary technology in education through best-in-class people and modern teaching learning experiences.

The infrastructure in the Department is geared towards preparing our students to be ready for the modern industry. The Department offers many courses within & outside the curriculum to prepare our students for the real world. These include training programmes on CNC Technology, Robotics, Coordinate Metrology, Fluid Power, Automotive Engineering at the NIE Eicher Centre for Automobile Technology Microgrid, Distance Ready Engineer by Tata Technologies and Advanced Computational tools which emphasize the role of practical education in engineering by inculcating a spirit of enquiry & excellence in its students.

The Department is moving towards Industry 4.0 by the integration of its Automation labs on a custom designed IoT platform. The teachers in the Department never hesitate in going the extra mile to help our students excel.

Our students are always the first to take up engineering challenges at national level competitions. We have a record of continuous success in events like SAE Baja India, SAE Supra India & Formula Bharat.

The students also skilled at organizing technical events like Robo-Rikishi (robot building & wrestling challenge), cogNIEscience (National level student paper presentation contest) & Automotive Technology Fairs
