About Mechanical Engineering Department

The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2002 with the vision of nurturing technically competent and socially responsible Engineering Professionals. Alma mater to more than 1500 Graduate Engineers over the past 16 glorious years; the Mechanical Engineering Department, SJEC, strives to prepare students for careers across a broad range of industries such as automotive, manufacturing, materials and metallurgy, oil and gas, aeronautical and marine. Mechanical Engineering encompasses learning the application of physical principles of heat, force, conservation of mass and energy, design of mechanisms and machine elements, system design, manufacturing and maintenance of industrial machinery, etc. Thrust is laid on teaching CAD/CAM tools along with the latest design tools to keep the students abreast with modern technologies in the discipline of Mechanical Engineering. The Department offers Undergraduate (B.E.), Post Graduate (M.Sc. in Engineering by Research), and Doctoral (Ph.D.) programme; with an annual intake of 120 candidates for the B.E. Course. The Department proudly announces the re-accreditation of its B.E. Mechanical Engineering programme by the NBA New Delhi for the third time, valid until June 2022. The Department has also obtained the Permanent Affiliation status from VTU Belagavi from 2019-20 to 2024-25.
