Message from HOD

The Department provides a stimulating environment for the development and exchange of ideas, particularly in areas of Interdisciplinary research and development. Our faculties are the intellectual leaders in their respective fields of research and we offer our students the opportunity to work one-on-one with the faculty in advancing the frontiers of knowledge. The mechanical engineering program places emphasis on research, design, development and the manufacturing of mechanical

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering of BTLIT. We, faculty of ME believe that teaching and learning is a continuous process. Hence we are providing a strong foundation in fundamental concepts and offering expertise and solving techniques ability towards the new technologies. Department is offering best quality of technical education with senior most dedicated Professors and experts from Industry and IT fields. We are providing the platform to the student community with the requisites know how far solving real time problems in meeting the requirements of the industries there by enabling them to enter the world of opportunities in the future. Components and machines for industry. That department has been recognized as research centre by VTU. Teachers can get their M.Tech by Research and also Ph.D. by research.

 Facilities in the Department & R&D

The R&D activities of the staff and the students have resulted in several publications both in the Indian and International Conferences as well as Journals. The R&D Headed by Dr. B H Lakshmana Gowda who has vast experience in Research and Academics. There are more than 300 publications by the department faculty in various national and international journals and conferences.
