Prof. K Sudhakar Reddy
Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechatronics, a very unique and emergent discipline was started with the inception of Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Technology (MGIT) in the year 1997, MGIT is the only Institute in the State and in the country to have started for the first time this innovative discipline of engineering, which is an integrated technology involving synergetic consideration and fusion of concepts of mechanical engineering, electronics, electrical, computer science and control engineering. The key element being the integration of these areas through design process.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering (Mechatronics) offers UG and PG courses in Mechatronics and also a UG course in Mechanical engineering. The Department has well qualified Forty faculty members viz. Four Professors, Three Associate Professors and Thirty three Assistant Professors and supported by qualified and experienced non-teaching staff. At present, the department has 11 Ph.D holders and 20 faculty members pursuing their Ph.D with reputed Institutions.

The Department has well established independent laboratories like SCADA based Instrumentation & Control systems, Computer Aided Motion Control Design, CNC & Robotics, Advanced CAD/CAM Lab with licensed software, Machine tools Lab with CNC-EDM, advanced Thermal Engineering and Heat Transfer Lab with computer based multi cylinder petrol engine test rig, Advanced Material testing lab with computer based tensile and torsion testing machine.   The department is also having advanced Measurement equipment like FARO gage portable CMM and 3D printing Lab, the AICTE has sanctioned a MODROBS project to the department for modernization of CNC & Robotics lab and also sanctioned grant in aid for organizing two week FDP and one week STTP programs.

UGC and JNTUH (TEQIP-III) have also sanctioned Research Projects to the Department. The students work with various clubs/ professional chapters like ASME, SAE, Robotics, ISTE, and Innovation Club. They showcase their potential knowledge in the form of development of product and organize various workshops /seminars/conferences. Indian National Academy of Engineers (INAE), New Delhi has awarded Mechatronics students for Best Innovative Undergraduate Projects at National Level in the area of Agricultural Robots during the Academic Years 2016-17 & 2018-19
