Industrial and Production
In the initial stages after it is been split with Mechanical department
it was considered as one of the most dangerous department. Things changed gradually and
became one of the popular branch with its dedicated teaching staff , labs and enthusiastic
students. The class strength usually ranges from 35- 40 which is a good average both for
student and lecturer. The department has young and energetic teching staff. Students of
I&P department always kept the NIE name flying high by securing ranks every year in
the Mysore university Examinations.

not so during exam time. There is also a walker those who want to have some body exercise.

gives students an opportunity to learn the usage of computers in computer aided design and
manufacturing. Also the lab is a great asset for final year students to carryout their

each batch of students are elected to this Society. The society carries out many
activities both related to the curriculum and extra-curricular. These activities are
managed by the student representatives and other students under the guidance of the HOD
and a Staff Advisor
The performance of I&P students both academic and otherwise has
been appreciable in recent years. I&P has established its identity very clearly
through great results in the exams and active participation in other activities. SIPE is
one of the means through which the I&P department gets regular identification.
The students of I&P have been regularly getting recruited at the
In 1998, I&P had six placements out of a total strength of 38.
In 1999, I&P had three placements so far.
Very recently Dr. B.J. Ranganath, Professor of I&P department was retired. Some
may feel a sigh of relief after getting this news. Whatever it is, there is no substitute
for him and his knowledge in metal cutting theories.
My name is Srinivas Bhat, currently working in US as a software professional. I was
a student of I&P department from 1985 -1989. I worked as a lecturer in the same
department before leaving for my higher studies in August 1991. Looking back just reminds
me the nice time I spent during these days. The canteen , assingments, attendence, tests,
HOD and of course girls are just memories.
Note: I am looking for current information on the department.I appreciate if
someone can help me in this regard.
My Sincere thanks to Kiran.J.Holla guest lecturer in I&P department for providing me
