The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2005 with an aim to prepare students to succeed and pursue a professional career in the field of mechanical engineering. JU-SET is one of the top mechanical engineering colleges in Bangalore that has a fusion of academics, research and industrial training. Our extraordinary facilities, highly educated faculty members and a well-connected student community have made the department vibrant and challenging, thus, enabling the college to achieve merit in the field of academics and research. JU-SET continuously upgrades the standards of education and research by establishing various laboratories as per University’s requirements and by procuring specialized equipment to inculcate an aptitude for research and development. Our committed faculty members are actively engaged in the research activities and have published several papers in international and national journals. The Department of Mechanical Engineering encourages the students to actively participate in sports events, co-curricular activities and social services.
Here at JU-SET, students can opt for Mechanical Engineering degrees at undergraduate, postgraduate and research levels. Most of the faculty are alumni of leading educational institutes such as National University of Singapore (NUS), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), University of Texas (USA), Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), and others. The Department of Mechanical Engineering undertakes several initiatives with the assistance of specialized research centers such as the Centre for Emerging Technologies and the Centre for Disaster Mitigation. The Mechanical Department has a team of distinguished and well qualified faculty with 5 faculty members (all with Ph.D.) and 16 faculty members currently pursuing their doctoral degrees, with a combination of academic, research and industrial experience.
The Bachelor’s program in Mechanical Engineering is structured in such a way that a student can pursue different specialized streams in the domains of design, manufacturing, thermal, production and materials engineering. The doctoral program focuses on areas related to Thermal, Materials, Fluid and MEMS in engineering. The Department has adequate computing and experimental facilities to train students at different levels of research.
