The Department of Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) is accorded Autonomous status by VTU, Belgavi and UGC, New Delhi in the year 2007. The state of the art Physical infrastructure has been established in order to promote a congenial academic environment to impart quality education. 

The cirriculum help the students to gain the knowledge and skills in the areas of Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Functional areas of management, Information Systems, Supply Chain Management, Quality Management and Quantitative Models for decision making apart from basic engineering knowledge and skills with emphasis on overall personality development. Apart from this, the students develop systems thinking abilities to handle complex problem-solving situations by undergoing variour Techno-Managerial activites and mould themselves as a generalist engineer who can serve in various sectors such as Manufacturing, Service and Research organizations.

Students are constantly being recruited by various well known, private and government companies and provided with the opportunity to contribute and serve towards the betterment of the society in different desciplines such as manufacturing industries, service industries, software companies, Finance sectors and also in R&D. The students also gain the qualities, skill sets and competancy required to become a succesful entrepreneur and work towards the economic development of nation.
