Established in 1953, this dept is staffed by experienced and dedicated faculty. It provides consultancy services and does research in the areas of Automation Technologies, Nanotechnology, Composite Materials, and Energy Systems Engineering and has established centers of excellence viz. Centre for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technologies (CREST), Centre for Nanotechnology (CNT), Centre for Automation Technologies (CAT), etc. Students can get hands-on training due to collaborative ventures with tops companies such as Bosch, Siemens, Volvo, etc.
This NIE dept began in the year 1958. It conducts research funded by UGC and AICTE in Energy Management and Distribution System as well as Power Systems. It collaborates in R & D with the Electrical Engineering Division of IISc; Karnataka Power Corporation; CPRI, Bangalore, and the State Electricity Board. Its consultancy work involves testing of motors, transformers, and Insulation of electrical appliances, Insulation Boards, etc., for clients.
This NIE dept saw its inception in the year 1971 and has worked towards achieving engineering excellence since then. It emphasizes keeping up with not only the basics but also the current trends in Electronics, Computers, Communication Engineering, and Instrumentation. Students can find modern laboratory facilities and learned faculty who review textbooks, having completed many industries and KSCST sponsored projects.
Originally a part of the Dept of mechanical engineering this dept. split in 1981. It researches in the broad areas of production and specializes in Metal Cutting, Machine Tools, Finance and Quality Control, Advanced Manufacturing, CAD-CAM, Robotics, Industrial Engineering, Advanced Materials, etc. The dedicated faculty, facilities, and infrastructure can help the students imbibe professionalism and ethics.
