Welcome to Mechanical Engineering

Department of MECH

In the Department of Mechanical Engineering, we are conscious of the importance of the role that mechanical engineering must play in areas such as energy and environmental systems, materials, transportation, robotics, manufacturing, information technology, biomechanics, health care, many of which are national priorities.

The Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Production Systems Engineering have been recently merged to better respond to the needs of the society. The integration produced a rich portfolio of research and academic activities in areas ranging from nano-scale processing to health-care robotics to supply chain management. As a result, the new department offers a diverse range of academic programs in 4 basic areas of specialization: Mechanical Systems Design, Materials and Manufacturing, Systems Control and Robotics, and Energy and Environment.

Salient Features

Mechanical Engineering deals with a wide variety of scientific and technological challenges, which include design and manufacturing, energy conversion and power generation, control and automation, computer simulation, environment protection, building services, aerospace and many more. It is the responsibility of mechanical engineers to design machines that are safe, reliable, and efficient. Since all manufactured products must be constructed of solid materials and because most products contain parts that transmit forces, mechanical engineering is involved in designing and selecting the materials for and ensuring the structural integrity of almost every product in the market.
