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!
