The Department of Mechanical Engineering has well-furnished class rooms, seminar hall equipped with audio–visual facilities, laboratories equipped with state-of-art equipment, departmental computer center with internet connectivity and air-conditioned laboratory for computer aided drawing.
The Centre for Applied Mechatronics & Additive Manufacturing focuses on establishing the drivers of Industry 4.0 in Academia. The Centre is supported by Industry Partners such as FESTO India Pvt. Ltd & Hycube Works.
The Centre is equipped with pneumatics, electro pneumatics, PLC, 3D Printers and Embedded control system boards. These Equipment will help students gain a 360-degree insight into the world of Mechatronics and Additive Manufacturing. This will help the students be ready for factories of future. In this centre, the students can collaborate with their peers from different engineering disciplines and can develop products and processes under the able guidance of faculty members. The Centre also focuses on Research & Development in the area of Mechatronics, Additive Manufacturing & Its Allied Disciplines.
Industry Associated Laboratory under the Department of Mechanical Engineering - “Mechatronics and Additive Manufacturing” in association with Hycube Works Private Limited, Bangalore and Festo India Private Limited, Bangalore.
