Karnataka
The Department of Mechanical Engineering started in the year 2009 and it offers Bachelor degree in Engineering
(B E) with an intake of 120 students. The students are trained by highly qualified and experienced teachers.
AICTE has granted permission to start Post Graduate program (M.Tech.) in “Thermal Power Engineering”
under the Department of Mechanical Engineering from the academic year 2013 – 14 with an intake of 18 students.
The course is affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum.
Thermal power engineering is a broad field of engineering that provides a very strong analytical and technical
competence in various aspects in the area. Thermal Power Plants have an increasingly dominant role to play in
the vital power generation sector. The course helps to explore techniques for viable methods to harness energy
from wind, solar and biomass as well as to explore the sustainable energy production methods from conventional
energy sources. It enables the graduates to get trained in a broad range of industrially relevant topics within
the field of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer. The program is specially designed to meet the
demands of both industry and research establishments.
Eligibility: Students having Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering / Industrial Production Engineering /
Manufacturing Engineering / Automobile Engineering or any other equivalent degree by securing not less than 50%
marks in the aggregate of all the years of the degree examinations are eligible to join this program. However
in case of candidates belonging to SC/ST/Group1 aggregate percentage of marks in qualifying examination should
not be less than 45%. The admissions are through central counseling on the basis of merit in PGCET or GATE. The
