The Department of Mechanical Engineering at SKIT was established in the year 2003 with an annual intake of 60 students in the B.Tech program. Presently the department is running the B.Tech program with an intake of 240 students and M.Tech programs in Renewable Energy Technology and Production Engineering with intakes of 18 and 9 students respectively.
The B. Tech. Degree program of the Department of Mechanical Engineering has been accredited three times by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA).
Being the mother branch of all engineering courses, the branch of Mechanical Engineering incorporates valuable contributions for achieving solutions to the emerging challenges in industry and varied sectors of engineering education. The Department of Mechanical Engineering at SKIT has a potent realization of the fact and thus continuously sets in motion sincere efforts to bring in quality change in the related areas. These efforts have started yielding results as our students with the active support of the faculty have been successful in developing highly perceptive projects.
Our Vision is to be a:
"World-class department catering to the changing needs and aspirations of all our present and future stakeholders."
Our Mission is:
"To create a conducive and supportive environment for all round growth of our students, faculty & staff."
