The cornerstone of the Mechanical Engineering program is hands-on experience in state-of-the-art laboratories. The foundational courses help acquire a deeper understanding of the essential facts, concepts, theories, and principles of mechanical engineering and its underpinning science, mathematics, and computing techniques. In senior years, one can specialize in following two of the three main curriculum stems that provide greater depth into niche areas of Mechanical Engineering, viz. Design, PLM, CAE, Manufacturing, and Thermal. Drawing on the strong link with industry, curriculum stems are designed to keep pace with current industry needs and practices. The learning is made exciting and experiential throughout the study with a unique approach of integrating project and laboratory experiences with the theory courses.
KLE Tech – School of Mechanical Engineering will be a national leader in mechanical engineering education – recognized for innovative culture, outstanding research and societal outreach.
- To offer programs in an engaging and experiential learning environment, preparing students for success in their lives and professional careers.
- To engage in disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research that is aligned to areas of national importance and priority.
- To contribute to socio-economic development of the region for enhanced quality of life.
KLETech School of Mechanical Engineering shall accomplish its mission by working in a team, with the spirit of collaboration and partnership.
The philosophy of Outcome Based Education (OBE) forms the bedrock of teaching-learning process in the School that has made provisions for continual curriculum updates in line with changing trends in the field. The experienced and dedicated faculty make a continuous and conscious effort to bridge the gap between the Industry and the School through personalized teaching-learning integrated by several active learning approaches in to Open-ended-experiments, and Mini-Minor-Capstone projects. A sophisticated range of equipment, state-of-the-art facilities and well-equipped laboratories ensure that students get the best practical training. The student learning is continually assessed through a systematically designed ‘Rubric based evaluation scheme’. The myriad initiatives taken by the School are aligned to the practical situations providing sufficient industry exposure during student learning. The Industry-School bonds are fortified through active involvement of industry in curriculum development, industry visits and expert talks. In adherence to OBE frame-work the School has a systematic assessment plan to gauge student attainment in technical and professional competencies at the time of graduation.
