About the Department
The Department of Mechanical Engineering is a part of BLDEA’s V.P. Dr. P.G. Halakatti College of Engg. & Tech., Bijapur since its inception and was established in 1980 with intake strength of 40. In 1994, the programme was approved by AICTE for an intake strength of 60 (letter No. F. 41-43/B 111/RC-MB/93/16239) subsequently, the programme is approved every year. The Department has grown tremendously over the years and is now recognized as the major engineering department of the Institute with present intake strength of 180 and quality teaching and instruction at UG/PG level. This programme has been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) for Engineering and Technology, New Delhi for a period of three years from 31st March, 2006 (letter No. F. No. NBA/ACCR-499/2004 Dated 07-04-2006). The Mechanical Engineering programme is reaccredited by NBA for period of three years from June 2015 to July 2018. The Department has strength of 48 multifaceted faculties and is homogeneous blend of experienced and junior faculty members. The average experience of teaching faculty is about 13 years. The department has enough infra-structure required to cater the needs of mechanical degree aspirants.
It is also one of the biggest departments of the institute with student strength of about 650. Department is committed to well being and all round the development of its students. The department currently runs one undergraduate programme.
- B.E (Mechanical Engineering)
Department has currently three masters Programme:
- M.Tech. (Machine Design)
- M.Tech. (Thermal Engineering)
- M.Tech. (Production Engineering and system Technology.(PEST)
The Department also offers M.Sc (Master of Science) by Research with more research content than course content. The Department is also recognized research Centre of VTU. Strength of the department lies in its Ph. D. programme with many research scholars pursuing the programme.
Department staff is specialized in terms of three groups,
- Mechanical Design group.
- Production & Industrial Engineering Group.
- Thermal Engineering Group.
The department has four Ph.D. Degree holders from Premier institutes of India with staff strength of 68 (48 Teaching and 20 non Teaching and other staff).
The department is well equipped with computational facilities and resources both in terms of hardware and software. Department has more than 150 computing systems and workstations loaded with high end software covering all areas of Mechanical Engineering.
