About the department

Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the core branches of JIT started in the year 2011. In 2011 and 2012 the student intake was 60. In 2013 the intake was increased to 120 and 60 students of diploma are getting admitted to the third semester by lateral entry. The department has a blend of highly experienced and young faculty members and belongs to different specializations like production engineering, thermal engineering and design engineering and many active researchers with active involvement in R & D projects. Mechanical Engineering Department is recognized as research centre for carrying out research leading to Ph.D/M.Sc (Engg) by research degree by VTU, Belgavi. Currently there are 16 Scholars pursuing their research work for Ph.D in the department. The department encourages the faculty and students to attend conferences, workshops and other training programs to enhance their technical skills. Many students have been placed in well-known companies such as VOLVO, WEST Line Shipping Services, and VEE technologies Ltd, Seventh sense talent solutions Ltd.

1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and computer science and engineering to the solution of complex engineering problems.

2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex computer engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.

3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex computer engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.

5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern computer engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling complex computer engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.

7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional computer engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.

8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the computer engineering practice.

9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.

10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex computer engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the computer engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.

12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
