• About B.E. Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is a highly diversified stream. The mechanical engineers design machines, devices, products, control systems, and work with the generation, and thermal power, Mechanical engineering are also responsible for characterization, specification and analysis of material used in design and manufacturing.

The Mechanical Department at Karavali Institute of Technology focuses on the overall development of students in a close-knit and motivating environment for the exchange of ideas. Every staff member is technically and academically sound in their respective fields, and we offer our students an opportunity to work one-to-one with the faculty in advancing the frontiers of knowledge.

Future is here for Mechanical Engineers! It has always been the backbone of any industry, as its presence can be felt in every sphere, right from the inception of design to the development of product.

Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, manufacture, and test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices. Engineers in this discipline work on power-producing machines such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines. They also work on power-using machines such as refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, machine tools, material-handling systems, elevators and escalators, industrial production equipment, and robots used in manufacturing.

  • What is it all about

The diversity of the field of mechanical engineering is represented in the following areas of involvement.

Fundamentally, mechanical engineers are involved with the mechanics of motion and the transfer of energy from one form to another or one place to another. Mechanical engineers design and build machines for industrial and consumer use -- virtually any machine you find, had a mechanical engineer involved with its development and production. They design heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems to control the climate in homes, offices, and industrial plants, and develop refrigeration systems for the food industry.
We live in a world of dependent on the production and conversion of energy into useful forms. Mechanical engineers are involved in all aspects of the production and conversion of energy from one form to another. They design and operate fossil fuel, hydroelectric, conventional, nuclear and cogeneration power plants. They design and develop internal combustion engines for automobiles, trucks and marine use and also for electrical power generation.
Mechanical engineers are experts on the conversion and use of existing energy sources and in developing the equipment needed to process and transport fuels. At the same time, mechanical engineers are active in finding and developing new forms of energy. In that effort, mechanical engineers deal with the production of energy from alternate sources, such as solar, geothermal, and wind.
Working in project teams is a way of life for mechanical engineers. Deciding which projects to undertake and leading those projects to a successful conclusion is the job of experienced engineers who move into management. On the safety front, all projects involve safety issues. By its very nature mechanical engineering involves the harnessing and channeling of the forces of nature, forces which are often extremely powerful.
Transportation is a large and growing field for mechanical engineers. Existing modes of air and surface transport require continuous improvement or replacement. Mechanical engineers work at the cutting edge of these efforts. Wherever machines are made or used, you will find mechanical engineers. They are instrumental in the design, development and manufacturing of machines that transmit power.
In contemporary manufacturing companies, mechanical engineers play a key role in the "realization" of products, working closely with other engineers and specialists in corporate management, finance, marketing, and packaging. Mechanical engineers design products, select materials and processes, and convert them to finished products. They design and manufacture machine tools -- literally the machines that make machines and design entire manufacturing processes, aided by the latest technologies in automation and robotics.
In order to arrive at the best design for a product, mechanical engineers use a wide variety of metal, plastic, ceramic materials. They also use composites made up of more than one type of material. Once designed, built and in service, elements like pipeline welds and sections, gears and other drive-train elements may need inspection for structural integrity or the effects of mechanical wear.
