Mechanical Engineering

Overview

Mechanical Engineering at the MIT - Kundapura has a long and compelling history. The foundations of the department were laid by outstanding scientists and professors. A reputation was gained early on for independent teaching and original research in a number of distinct areas. The response to these initiatives in research and education was remarkable. Many Engineers from industry raised mechanical engineering to a technological science. They showed an extraordinary talent for solving engineering problems by applying theoretical insights alongside his extensive knowledge of mechanical engineering.

Profile

Engineers are in demand. According to a survey, 55 % of businesses are expecting demand for employment to continue to rise till 2025. Mechanical engineering is the branch with the most engineers and the demand for them is rising all the time. This is a long-term development, brought on by demand, rather than a cyclical phenomenon. New positions need to be created. Given the increasing degree of mechanization in just about every area of life, additional demand is arising for specialists – not just in the development sector but in the service sector as well.

Now, more than ever, the success of a business depends on the drive for cost-effective and innovative product development. New markets must be taken over quickly. Creativity is required just as much as the technical basics. Nowadays, competition is world-wide and new benchmarks are being set all the time. To ensure that products developed in India are consistently ready for international markets, it is essential to get right the process of meeting the customer’s requirements with innovative and cost-effective products..

Working as a team and closely with the customer, they realize successful outcomes from the ideas stage right through to the finished product. The mechanical engineer can expect to carry out a wide range of tasks from development to recycling. In the course of their studies they’ll acquire knowledge and skills to help them develop ideas, analyze problems and propose solutions.

Engineers are playing a fundamental role here. They are trendsetters who create products and technologies for human requirements. Engineers evaluate economic and ecological facts, communicate with professionals in other technical disciplines, are customer-oriented and used to thinking in terms of business. They are aware of sales and marketing opportunities and work internationally..

Activities

"The breadth of mechanical engineering is unique," So we students of MITK organized the Mechanical Forum “INCEPTIVE” on 14th November 2019 which was inaugurated by Chief guest Mr.Sri Krishna Rao Kodancha, H.O.D Dr.Chandra Rao Madane, Principal Dr.Kataiya G S. It’s our pleasure that Mr. Rohit shetty was elected as president.

After the inauguration ceremony, oath taking ceremony was conducted where every student pledged to be a honest engineer towards his duty and the society.

Through our forum Inceptive, we are going to conduct academic and co-curricular activities like workshops on recent technologies, seminars, industrial tours, government training programs, blood donation camps, spell B, quiz competitions and much more. We are also interested to form cricket, badminton, volleyball and football club. We came up with special training classes to improve the technical abilities like CATIA, Hyper mesh, AUTOCAD and project designing classes.

Technical Talk on “Effective utilization of solar energy, Fuel of future”

The Department of Mechanical Engineering organized a technical talk on “Effective utilization of solar energy, Fuel of future” at MITK Campus on 20th November 2019.Dr. Arunachala U.Chandavar, Senior Associate Professor, MIT MANIPAL, , was invited as the resource person to deliver the talk for students and faculty. He explained about different methods of utilizing solar power and also techniques to improve efficiency of the solar energy systems. Resource person clarified students doubts during interactive session.
