A very warm welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Global Academy of Technology. It is a known fact that Mechanical Engineering finds application in all fields of technology and it is one of the core branches of engineering which has remained always in demand and will continue to be in the future.. We are very happy that Global Academy of Technology has been accredited “A” grade by NAAC. I am also happy to place on records that our M.Tech students have secured VTU 1st and 2nd Ranks .
Our student teams Green Grenades and Go Kart have participated in racing competitions, won prizes and have brought laurels to our department and also to the college. Global Academy of Technology has signed MOU with M/S Toyota Kirloskar Motors Pvt Ltd to set up Center of Excellence in Automotive Engineering in our department. I am sure students will benefit from centre through enhanced projects.
I wish all the outgoing students all the very best in their future endeavors of their Job, higher education or entrepreneurship.
Come and join us, and be part of our journey to success.
Wishing you Good Luck

ISHRAE Student chapter
The Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE), student chapter was installed at Global Academy of Technology on August 27, 2016. Over 120 students registered for the student chapter.
The purpose of an ISHRAE student chapter is to get more students interested, concerned, and involved in pursuing a career in the field of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration. ISHRAE student chapter activities are administered by students as elected officers which provide students with an experience that simulates running a business or an organization. By networking with local ISHRAE Chapter, one will have an opportunity to meet practicing engineers in the HVAC industry
Benefits to the student member
SAE student chapter
SAE is an international consortium of students and professionals which plays a major role in setting operational and safety standards for automobile, aerospace and various other industries. The Indian wing of SAE is called SAE INDIA. It is most well-known among students for organizing the BAJA and SUPRA events. SAE Student Chapter was initiated in the year 2011. Over 240 students have registered as a student member.
AGIRA RACING is the first team from Global Academy of Technology to participate in SUPRA SAEINDIA competition consisting of students from GAT’s highly successful and driven Mechanical Department which is guided by Associate Prof. Gurunagendra G R, FRANCIS and supported by HOD and Principal.
