About the Course

Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and broadest among engineering disciplines. The application base of Mechanical Engineering field of study is diverse and its scope is continuously expanding beyond the traditional boundaries. Mechanical Engineering applies the principles of Physics, Materials Science and Mathematics to the design, development, research, evaluation, manufacture, installation, testing, operation, maintenance and management of mechanical systems. Mechanical Engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product life-cycle management to design, analyze and develop manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, and others.

Mechanical Engineers are employed in automotive, aerospace, chemical, computer, electronic, industrial machinery, manufacturing, mining, oceanographic, petroleum, pharmaceutical, power, printing, publishing, and textile industries. They use engineering principles to provide efficient solutions for the development of processes and products, ranging from small component designs to extremely large plants, machinery or vehicles.

Mechanical Engineers are focusing their attention towards new areas of research such as nanotechnology, development of composite materials, biomedical applications, environmental conservation, etc. To summarize, the field of Mechanical Engineering offers a wide range of job options to students, who are looking for a stable, stimulating and challenging career.

The Institution of Engineers (India) Students’ Chapter

The Institution of Engineers (India) [IEI] is a statutory body to promote and advance the engineering and technology, established in 1920 and incorporated by Royal Charter in 1935, head quartered in Kolkata, is a professional institution established, “to promote and advance the science, technology, and business of Engineering in all its branches in India”. It is the largest multi-disciplinary professional body of engineers encompassing 15 (fifteen) engineering disciplines with a Corporate membership of over 2 lakhs, and serving the nation for more than 9 decades.

In accordance the students’ chapter under Mechanical division- BNMIT is constituted on 22nd February 2017. The chapter was inaugurated by Chief Guest Er. Jasmail Singh., Honorary Secretary, IEI, Karnataka State Centre. Guest of Honor, Dr. Enti Ranga Reddy., Council Member, IEI, Mechanical Engineering Division Karnataka State Centre for initiating and imbibing the feeling of belongingness into fraternity of engineering to which the students of engineering are destined. The Students Chapters will provide a learned workshop for the development of socio-techno intellectual qualities of its members as well as for encouraging their urge and surge for knowledge in a disciplined and guided system.
