It is the fundamentals that defines what you want to be as an Engineer. At NMAMIT’s mechanical engineering course, the highly skilled professors, exceptional lab facilities and staff have made it an easy accomplishment.
NMAMIT has not only been key to our education but also taught us the basics in life and the way to succeed. The all round development we had in the 4 years of our course have been the basis for our strength and foundation to succeed in the competitive environment.
NMAM Institute of Technology Nitte has been and is, one of the Prime Institutions from where Graduate Engineers have joined industry and adapted / contributed very well to the needs of the Industry. Their technical caliber and sincere structured working needs mention. Some of their students have come up to Prime positions in Industry . Technical Seminars ,Society oriented Projects and Hands On Workshops are the standout points of NMAMIT
I have been interacting with NMAMIT close to 5 years. My initial stint was, as a member of the Board of Studies. Industry oriented Knowledge & Skill Development was high on the BOS agenda.
In the year 2017 NMAMIT, started a unique Project. Developing a State of the Art Automobile Workshop. This was to be a Centre of Excellence in Teaching / Training with an Industrial background. A Ashok Leyland Bus Chassis having the contemporary BS4 emission level engine was procured and a dedicated workshop was put up for all the students to upgrade their skills to contemporary levels. NMAMIT is a pioneer in this
I Wish NMAMIT All the Best in all their future endeavors.
Greetings from Fronius India !
Year 2018 was prominent in bridging the association with N.M.A.M NITTE ! The sheer passion from NMAM and Fronius on this year lead us towards the inauguration of the “NMAMIT-FRONIUS Centre for Welding Technology”.
This centre of excellence displays the latest technologies, advancement and precision offered to the welding industry. For Fronius is known and accepted as 75 year old Industry leader in its technology across the globe.
Where VTU University has limited the welding subject to few hours. At NMAM the mechanical department has taken it to the next level, setting a new limit. The eminent scholars / faculties are seen actively encouraging the students at this Centre of Excellence in Welding from as early as 1st semester.
Industrial 4.0, robotic welding in conjunction with IOT is here and NMAM is shaping their students to this next generation in welding for the smart factories ! I am confident that this will definitely help our country initiative of ‘Make in India’.
I have visited NMAMIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering in August 2017 for the inauguration of National Conference on “Machining of Difficult to Machine Materials: Recent Developments, Issues and Solutions”. I was highly impressed with the self-contained campus located in a serene rural environment with modern facilities and knowledgeable faculty members, empowering students for all-round growth and professional development and equipping them with future skills.
The Department offers a special skill development programme called "Product Design Engineer" from fifth semester onwards through M/s KH Designs Bangalore (Partner SIEMENS/ NASSCOM). This program prepares students industry-ready and minimises the training cost, time and efforts of companies.
Students are trained for job role "Product Design Engineer”- Mechanical. It’s an SSC NASSCOM certified course providing training over a period of three semesters (5, 6 and 7 semester). 49 students have already completed the training and another 48 have completed the first module. Some of the trained students have already secured internships in Industries along with job offers. Intention of this training is not only maximizing campus placements but also providing right skills at the right time.

Titan Industries is the world's fifth largest watch manufacturer and India's leading producer of watches under the Titan, Raga, Orion, Nebula, Octane etc. The main focus of the industry was on production of gears, small parts, etc. and assembly of watches. The guide assigned to the students gave a brief overview of the industry. He began explaining about the basic procedures required to follow while building a simple wrist watch and mentioned about the minute details that need to be taken care of in the production of watches.
During the full session students had a tremendous amount of interaction with the guide with goal to grasp even more. The visit was concluded with a visit to the factory outlet.
TTK Prestige is the leading manufacturer of pressure cookers in the whole of south India. In the beginning of the session the team was enlightened about the history of the company followed by the advantages and necessities of using a pressure cooker. The evolution of pressure cooker was an interesting topic to learn about.
The visit was concluded with a Complementary mini lunch offered by TTK Prestige.
The Government Sandalwood Oil factory was established by the Maharaja of Mysore His Highness Nalwadi Krishna Raja Wodeyar and Diwan Sir, M. Visvesvaraya, during the year 1916 at Mysore, to extract Sandalwood Oil from Sandalwood. Unlike an auditorium, an open-air session was conducted, about the advantages, medical importance and significance of Sandalwood tree was explained in a very brief manner. We were provided with immense amount of knowledge about sandalwood trees and its properties.
The industry had a factory outlet with discounted rates for the visitors.
This industrial visit was a great success as the amount of knowledge gained about ‘how an industry works’ and the management skills required to run an industry would be of great importance for all the members present.

Department implements active learning laboratory for Industrial Robotics course.Read More
Department implements active learning laboratory for Industrial Robotics course. The main challenge in robotics is to understand robot direct and inverse kinematics. Robot kinematics involves application of 3D homogeneous transformations on robotics, hence in active learning lab on robotics students must understand the concept of 3D homogeneous transformations using 3D models of coordinate systems fabricated using 3D printing technology. Concepts like chaining of 3D transformations/forward and inverse transformations were taught to the students using 3D models. Link and joint parameters of the robot were taught to the students using 3D models. Direct and inverse kinematics solutions for different robot configurations were taught to the students using robot models and 3D coordinate systems. In all active learning classes students are made to obtain the mathematical solution and its physical meaning is explained using robot models and coordinate system. Individual students are made to solve unique problems on robot kinematics during active learning class by discussing within themselves. This way of teaching has improved the level of understanding of different concepts of robotic course.
