Mechanical Engineering(Accredited by NBA)

Introduction

One of the most diverse and versatile engineering fields, Mechanical Engineering is the study of objects and systems in motion. The Department of Mechanical Engineering of MITE was started in the year 2007 along with the inception of the institute with an intake of 60 students and the current intake is 120. The Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA), AICTE, New Delhi for three years in 2017 and again for three years in 2020 up to 30-06-2023.

Department has faculty members with Master’s and Doctorate degrees, having specialization in machine design, thermal engineering, product design, and materials engineering are involved in academic and research activities. R & D unit of the department was established in 2013, offers M.Sc. (Engg) and Ph.D. programs under VTU, Belagavi.

The department has a well–defined student centric teaching-learning-process to cater to the needs of students from diverse background. Students of mechanical engineering department have secured VTU ranks under top 10 consecutively in recent past, of which one of them being the first rank.

The department has state-of-the art facilities for various laboratories and class rooms. The department is empowered by Industry Collaboration with Bosch Rexroth Center of Competence, Siemens Centre of Excellence and Carl Zeiss on Industrial metrology. Apart from classroom teaching, ample opportunities are provided to students to get hands-on training in parallel with respective theory subjects. This effort in turn resulted in good number paper publication among the students.

The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. The projects, industry visits, internships and hands-on activities are designed to foster a spirit of entrepreneurship among students and to enable students to launch their own ventures.

The department of Mechanical Engineering has received a grant of INR 13.5 lakhs from AICTE to set up “Advanced laboratory Material Testing laboratory” during the year 2019-20 and about INR 9 lakhs from AICTE and VGST to organize conference and FDPs.

      Following are the few activities inculcated in the department beyond the syllabus:

      • Students are encouraged to utilize resources like NPTEL and various e-learning materials and e-journals
      • Students are trained with Industry oriented software solutions like NxCAD, Tecnomatix, and ROBCAD in SIEMENS CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE located at MITE
      • Students are trained in developing practical skills in basic hydraulics and pneumatics through short term courses at Bosch Rexroth Centre of Competence in Automation Technology located at MITE
      • Students are encouraged to work with innovative ideas and shall focus on current technological trends to carry out mini projects in 3rd year and Project in final year.
      • Technical fests are organized by the students which enable them to be aware of the new frontiers in engineering.
      • Department shall organise Industrial visits and support students to do Projects at industries to make them conscious of the challenges in the industry. To get acquainted with the work place environment
      • The students are encouraged to attend various online courses (COURSERA, NPTEL) and trainings
      • International Conferences and expert talks shall be avenues for the students to enhance their technical knowledge and soft skills by interacting with the resource persons of expertise from various fields.
