Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at SMVITM started functioning in the year 2010. The Department offers an under graduate program in mechanical engineering that covers a wide range of topics in the field of mechanical engineering such as thermal and fluid sciences, engineering design, dynamics and control, materials, manufacturing, modelling and simulation as per the VTU curriculum to suit the interests of students and meet the industry requirements.

The student intake capacity of the Department is 120. Teaching and learning activities at the Department are designed in such a way as to stimulate intellectual curiosity, creativity and innovation in students. The Department has a well qualified and experienced team of faculty members who have their specializations in the different branches/areas of mechanical engineering. The highly committed faculty with their innovative ideas guides the students with their projects and industry assignments. The efforts of faculty, well experienced supporting staff, enabling learning environment and availability of modern facilities are reflected in the excellent performance of the students. Efforts are underway to set up a Research & Development centre to initiate the research activities at the Department.

The Department frequently conducts theoretical and practical technical sessions, industrial visits for the benefit of the students and faculty under the ISTE Students’ and Faculty Chapters. These Chapters are actively involved in conducting technical talks and guest lecturers by eminent personalities from the industry and academicians from reputed institutes like IISc., IITs and NITs.  The Student Chapter is active in organizing   career guidance programs, student talent search programs, seminars, workshops, etc. as co-curricular activities throughout the semesters.
