About

I, Dr. Rathanraj K J, Professor and Head in the Department of Industrial
Engineering and Management, BMSCE, graduated from BEC, Bagalkot
Post graduated and Doctorate from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, Mumbai in Reliability Engineering.
My professional career started as a lecturer in Polytechnic and then briefly worked for M/S. DathuNirman as Quality Engineer. Later on, I joined the BMSCE as a Lecturer in the year 1991. Presently, I am guiding 5 PhD research scholars and have successfully guided over 25 postgraduates and over 30 under graduates project work and one research scholar for his PhD under VTU. I have also published more than 35 international journal and conference papers.
Apart from teaching and guiding students of IEM for their project work, I also have been involved in guiding students for SAE competitions like Baja, Supra and Aero for the last 10 years.

Active member of Manufacturing expert committee of BCIC and QCFI
