Research Activities

Our department facilitates both Undergraduate Student Research and Faculty Research activities

The research activities are technical stream-centric (Design, Production, Thermal and Industrial) and have been gaining momentum in the recent past. Sponsored Research projects proposed by the faculty and supported by various government funding agencies help in upliftment of research activities of each stream.

Major research projects undertaken include:

Development of Bio-diesels from Marotti and testing in a Compression Ignition Engine (2007)

Investigator: Dr. Vinod Kumar V – Funded by Institute


Investigation of vibration monitoring and Development of a preventive maintenance schedule for Rotating machineries (2008) - Funded by Institute

Investigator: Dr. Shabareesh G R
