Our Vision

"The Mechanical Engineering Department strives to be recognized globally for outstanding education and research leading to well-qualified engineers, who are innovative, entrepreneurial and successful in advanced fields of engineering and research."

Our Mission

  • Imparting quality education to the students and enhancing their skills to make them globally competitive mechanical engineers.
  • Maintaining vital, state-of-the-art research facilities to provide its students and faculty with opportunities to create, interpret, apply and disseminate knowledge.
  • To develop linkages with world class R&D organizations and educational institutions in India and abroad for excellence in teaching, research and consultancy practices.

From the HOD's Desk

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering

I feel privileged to be Head of Mechanical Department at VVIT which has given mea broad scope to implement my ideas and grow with the institution. We have verygood faculty members with great academic backgrounds. Each of our faculty members is ready and willing to work towards the academic and non academic activities for the welfare of the students.

We strive to ensure that all our students have a strong technical education with teaming and leadership skills, involvement in student activities, and the practical background of internship experience. We believe that emphasizing these areas will make our students well qualifid to take leadership roles in the future.

On behalf of all the staff members I wish a very bright future for all the outgoing students.
