We are the top best mechanical engineering colleges in bangalore, To put it simply, mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves, including the human body, a very complex machine. Mechanical engineers learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems. The subjects serve to familiarize students with basic concepts of thermodynamics, solid mechanics, metallurgy, kinematics, control systems and even coding.
The curriculum for students of Mechanical Engineering has been designed with the specific target of creating industry-ready professionals at the Cambridge Institute of Technology. Mechanical students pursue the study of materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems. It develops the ability to design and create mechanical
systems, including those used in the automotive, aeronautics, robotics, and manufacturing industries.
In addition to theoretical knowledge, students are provided real time challenges in the laboratories. To add to their experience, we have the R&D centre which undertakes funded projects to the tune of about Rs 4 crore in interdisciplinary domains such as Unmanned Air Vehicles, Ultra Sonic impact treatment, Micro Air Vehicles, Small Satellites, Evaluation of full-field temperature fields of high speed compressors and turbines through thermal paint tests, thin film sensors. The centre also takes up projects of social relevance such as lake
monitoring, use of technology to ease traffic congestion, waste management etc.
Students are encouraged to carry out in house final projects at our R & D centre during their
final year and take up micro & mini projects during their second and third years, respectively.

Products Developed at R&D
Cambridge Tinkering Lab (Maker’s Space Lab)
The tinkering lab refers to a working space earmarked for technical learning and knowhow where students can learn, conceptualize, experiment and develop different scientific ideas, product development, undertaking repairing and reengineering practices using available common tools and instruments in all the disciplines of engineering. At present, the lab is equipped with more than 80 tools, 3D printers, robots; scientific, mechanical, electrical and electronics equipment and consumables. It is a platform for all students to involve in hands-on activity in mechanical/electrical/electronic elements and fabrication processes. The primary idea is that students ‘operate’ on their own, under staff supervision i.e. an opportunity to learn technology driven in the most practical way of doing things themselves.
