Mechanical Engineering

The department offers courses in both Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering and Masters in Thermal Power Engineering with a minimum intake being 120 for the former and 18 for the latter. Under the mentorship of Former Director of AICTE, now serving as Principal of Maharaja Institute of Technology Thandavapura and Founder Secretary of Maharaja Education Trust, Dr. Y. T. Krishnegowda, the department found its roots well planted since the inception of the institution in 2007. Since then it has grown in its strength and caliber, with a dynamic leader in Dr. Mohamed Khaisar Head of the Department, leading a team of well qualified and diversely specialized faculty. The Department has well qualified and experienced technical staff with state of the art laboratories to meet the requirements of delivering quality education which is essential for the present challenging societal and industrial needs. The Department is involved in research activities in the areas of condition monitoring, FEM analysis, Fatigue analysis of Hybrid Composite, Automatic inspection using machine vision system, Mechatronics and the like. We are actively involved in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, and strive to attain utmost knowledge and exposure for both the staff and the students by associating with independent national and international professional bodies and by the formation of a Student Club called the Mechismos Club.

From HoD’s Desk:

Hello every one,

I am very happy to convey my message through this electronic platform. The department is very well prepared with resources and technological infrastructure to cater to the needs of today’s ever growing industrial requirements and worldwide developments in the field of science and technology. We have state of art laboratories, the departmental library of informational importance and continuous interactive environment with the industry making it very distinct from many. We are more preferred by the student community due to the fact that we practice the teaching learning process in a perfect ambience with individual attention being paid. We have exhibited wonderful transformation index when it comes to the student intake and students going out that makes us more magnetic. I wish all the readers a wonderful career and invite to join hands with us be it as a student or resource person to interact and enhance learning at our department.

Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest and most versatile of the engineering professions, which is concerned with the responsible development of products, processes, and power, at scales ranging from nanoparticles to large and complex systems. Mechanical engineering principles and skills are involved at some stage during the conception, design, development, and manufacture of every human-made object with moving parts. Many innovations crucial to our future will have their roots in the world of mass, motion, forces, and energy—the world of mechanical engineers.

During the first year the students are provided with a broad understanding of fundamentals of engineering disciplines. In the second and third years, students are introduced to theoretical and practical knowledge in the fields of thermal, design, manufacturing, and management. During the final year, students utilize previously gained knowledge to carry out a project work and seminar on the topic of their interest. The project work teaches them to work in a team, different phases of product development, planning, execution and presentation.

Apart from the curriculum, the department focuses on the skill development of the student through industrial visits and various vocational training programs such as CAD/CAM training, Hydraulics and Pneumatics, detailed working of IC Engines, CNC machining and Mechatronics to bridge Institute-Industry gap.

Mechanical Engineering Graduates will be able to,

  1. Pursue their professional career in core and allied domains
  2. Continuously upgrade their professional skills through higher education and/or other learning programs
  3. Exhibit strong professional and social ethics, and participation in interdisciplinary ventures
  1. Apply the acquired knowledge of mechanical engineering to develop techniques and systems by drawing inferences through investigations using modern tools.
  2. Analyze and solve practical problems in mechanical engineering with profound concern about the society and environment.
  1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
