Prof. Thimmaiah A G

Head Of the Department

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at CIT. The Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 2010 and has made remarkable achievements during its journey. The Department is one of the youngest and the finest of the college. Our aim is to be a Centre of Excellence in the field of Mechanical Engineering where the best of teaching, learning and research blend together.

We have a team of dedicated and experienced faculty members, driving the department towards excellence in teaching. Our laboratories have been very well established not only to cover complete syllabus but to motivate students to learn beyond the syllabus which definitely develops complete knowledge of the subject and skill sets of students to become promising engineers in future. The Department organizes seminars, workshops on wide-ranging topics every year.

We have a very good Industry-Institute interaction and we organize industrial visits for students periodically to provide an opportunity for them to interact with working professionals from industry.
