Department of Mechanical Engineering

The University of Visvesvaraya College of Engineering, popularly known as UVCE, is one of the most prestigious colleges imparting Technical Education in the state of Karnataka.The College as well as the Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 1917 by the greatest Engineer of the Country, Statesman of modern times Bharata Ratna Sir. M. Visvesvaraya. Since the beginning,the department has grown beyond leaps and bounds producing highly competent graduates,postgraduates and doctorates who have occupied prestigious positions both in India and abroad.The department currently offers one Undergraduate (B.E Fulltime & Part-time) and Four Postgraduate (M.E) Programmes.

The mechanical engineering department awarded more than 140 Ph.D degrees. At present there are 25 candidates pursuing their Ph.D. The teaching faculty has engaged in a number of R & D projects sponsored by UGC, AICTE, MHRD, AR&DB, ADA, Naval Research Board, etc. Presently, 16 full time faculty are serving the institute. There are 12 Professors, 4 Associate Professors. The department has set Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time bound (SMART) objectives in achieving academic excellence in UG, PG, M.Sc. (Engineering) by offering Research and Doctoral programmes at par with IITs and National Institutes of Excellence. It has also set an objective to evolve itself as an R & D centre to promote and pursue research in the areas of current industrial and all other relevant thrust areas in Engineering.
