Department of Mechanical Engineering


Department of Mechanical Engineering, KLE Technological University, Hubli

The Mechanical Engineering department offers an under-graduate program in Mechanical Engineering that covers a wide range of courses in Design, Manufacturing and Thermal domains to suit the interests of students & meet the industry requirements. The Department also offers post graduate programs in Energy Systems Engineering, Production Management and Machine Design and Research Programs leading to MSc and PhD.

The curriculum is continually reviewed to be in line with the changing trends in the field. The experienced and dedicated faculty make a continuous and conscious effort to bridge the gap between the industries and the department through personalizing learning and teaching with the implementation of several active learning techniques, open ended experiments, mini, minor and capstone projects. A sophisticated range of equipment, state-of-the-art facilities and well-equipped labs ensure that students get the very best of practical training. The learning is continually evaluated through rubric based assessment. Educational offerings in the Department are very much leaned to practical situations providing sufficient exposure to industrial environment. The relationship of the department with the industries is strengthened through their involvement in curriculum development and various activities like seminars, industry visits and expert lectures.

We earnestly emphasize on a healthy and intimate teacher- student relationship so that the true potential of each student is realized and flourished. The students are encouraged to develop themselves through various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The Department of Mechanical Engineering aims not only to produce efficient engineers, but also well-educated conscientious leaders who can contribute to the development of the country through ameliorating our industries.

Academic Initiatives
The college has entered into an MOU with Bosch Rexroth India Ltd (BRIN) and set up ‘Centre of Competence in Automation Technologies’, which helps in making our students industry ready and more employable. A unique Energy Park set up by the department disseminates information on non-conventional energy sources to the entire region of North Karnataka.

Research & Development / Topic

Learning Factory
The ‘Learning Factory’ is a facility created to be used by all the disciplines to promote product development and realization eco-system in the campus. It intends to provide students with unique learning experiences on real industry problems and products in a work-emulating environment. It helps them understand industry needs, professional requirements and the product realization process. The Learning Factory provides modern design, prototyping, and manufacturing facilities required for realization of any electro-mechanical product. It also provides expert supervision and training to use the facilities. This initiative has helped our student teams to participate in national competitions such as SAE Formula, SAE-ecokart, SAE-BAJA, SAE-Efficycle, ROBOCON, etc. and win several championships consistently.

Research Clusters
The department based upon the strengths and future opportunities has identified 2 areas and hence established research clusters – one in Materials science and another one in Energy systems, having potential to further collaborative interdisciplinary research leading to high impact products. The clusters have the objectives to synergize efforts of interdisciplinary groups of faculty and students working on technologies of future importance and relevance, aim to emerge as Centers of Excellence by gaining greater reorganization at National and International levels, focus more on applied research leading to products, IPs and technologies that are useful to the society and also create commercial value, attract external funding and collaborations. The clusters have filed 6 patents apart from quality publications in the reputed international in just two years of their existence.

Project Monitoring through PLM tool
ENOVIA V6 is the Product Lifecycle Management software used in our department to effectively monitor the student projects. The tool provides an online collaborative environment for student teams and project guide, provides a platform to demonstrate capabilities in modeling, simulation, manufacturing and generation of bill of materials and other project documentation using various application software such as CATIA, DELMIA and SIMULIA on a single platform. The advantages of the introduction of ENOVIA ensured in creating a knowledge base of project data, a central repository of student projects, IP protection and management, easy centralized monitoring and assessment of the projects.
