HIGHLIGHTS OF DEPARTMENT
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at KSIT is as old as the Institute itself. Today, the department of mechanical engineering of KSIT attracts and features an extraordinary rich diversity and quantity of talented individuals, with nearly 450 undergraduates supported by experienced and highly qualified teaching and nonteaching staff. There is a concerted effort to raise the “Aspirational reference point” of the pupils undergoing graduate program in engineering by subjecting them to continuous value addition. Hence The Department has been producing excellent results with distinctions in the university examinations consistently. In addition to class room teaching learning processes students are guided and encouraged to be familiar with emerging technology. Our students have been actively associating themselves with industries through industrial projects, inplant training and industrial visits with almost all Mechanical engineering oriented organizations/industries. We feel proud to inform that our students earn places in the merit list of University Examinations every year. Many of our alumni have pursued higher education in premier institutions world over & are at top executive positions at various enterprises such as Infosys, Wipro, L&T, Mercedes, TOYOTA, Robert Bosch, MICO and innumerable software, Manufacturing, Mechanical Design and service organizations. The Department has been recognized as R & D Centre by Visvesvaraya Technological University for carrying out Research activities leading to M.Sc. (Engg.) and Ph.D degrees.
