The Department has been recognized as R & D Centre by Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum, for carrying out Research activities leading to M. Sc.(Engg.) and Ph.D. Degrees. The department offers two UG programs namely, B.E.(Mechanical Engineering) and B.E. (Industrial Engineering and Management, started in 1995) and one PG program namely, M.Tech.(Computer Integrated Manufacturing, started in 2002). The sanctioned students’ strengths of B.E. Mechanical Engineering is 120, B.E. Industrial Engineering and Management is 30 and M.Tech. CIM is 25. At present, the department has Ph.D scholars, working on nanomaterials, composites, alternative fuels etc.

The students of the department will undergo internship in various reputed organizations all over the country. Students participate in various international competitions regularly. The department possesses the state of the art research facilities to support our academic programs and research. Several projects of the students have been funded by the Government of Karnataka and VTU, Belagavi. The students of our department work in interdisciplinary projects and have won laurels at National level.

Our department has a distinguished record in both teaching and research. Faculty members have excellent academic credentials and are highly regarded. They have publications at national and international levels and also have patents. Several faculty members serve on the editorial boards of national and international journals, review technical articles for journals on a regular basis and organize conferences and workshops.
