Course Code: 3

The Department of Mechanical Engineering of VIVA Institute of technology commenced in 2009. The department has been running with modern infrastructure and well-equipped laboratories, computational facilities with state of the art hardware and software resources. A team of well qualified and experienced faculty of the department impart knowledge to the students in both basic and real world industrial aspect of Mechanical Engineering courses by adopting simple as well as the latest teaching tools.
The academic programs are designed to provide industry student interaction which includes frequent industrial visits for our students to expose them to real life engineering challenges and opportunities. Students are exposed to cutting edge technologies through industrial guest lectures, industry sponsored projects and industrial internships. Students benefit from association with professional organizations such as ISHRAE, IIIE, SAE. The curriculum for each programs is continuously updated to keep it in sync with needs of industry and current research developments. The department takes keen interest in inculcating an attitude and temperament for practicing ethics in the mind of students and preparing them for being part of collective efforts for nation building.
