Mechanical Engineering is the discipline that applies the principles of engineering, physics, and materials science for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
The engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided design, and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, and others.
MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Department was started in the year 2007. Apart from academic programmes, the department also undertakes testing and design consultancy services from government departments as well private and semi private sectors. The department has highly qualified faculty of which few are having Ph.D.degrees. Department has well equipped laboratories.
Department is recognized as the center for the third party inspections for different Government of Karnataka Projects . Department has recently statred a P.G. Course in Machine Design which is a extension centre of Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum.
The Department is Headed by Dr.Manjunath S.S. M.Tech, Ph.d
