The LNM Institute of Information Technology

Department of Mechanical- Mechatronics Engineering

Under Graduate

The Department of Mechanical-Mechatronics Engineering was established in 2013. The Department is ably supported by a team of faculty members having degrees from reputed institutes and excellent research credentials.

The Department currently offers the following Undergraduate Programmes:

      • B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering
      • B. Tech. (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Robotics and Automation
      • Minor in Robotics and Automation for B.Tech (ECE/CSE and CCE)


The strength of each of its programmes lies in its progressive curriculum that offers flexibility to students to carefully select a set of program/other electives to earn specialized knowledge in areas of their choice. We emphasize on hands-on based learning to bridge the gap between academia and industry. Projects are encouraged to deal with real-world problems using emerging technologies. To enhance student learning, the Department regularly organizes workshops and lectures by experts from renowned institutions and organizations.
