The Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the founding departments of the Institute. It is also one of the largest departments of the Institute, housing 25 faculty members with varied expertise and hundreds of undergraduate, postgraduate, and research scholars.
The department aims to be one of the top departments in the world. Currently, the department offers B. Tech. in Mechanical with minors in many fields. The department also offers Master’s Degrees in four disciplines, viz. Manufacturing Engineering (MF), Mechanics and Design (MD), Thermal & Fluids Engineering (TF), and Computational Mechanics.
The faculty members in the department can be categorized broadly into the following groups: Design, Manufacturing, and Thermal. The department is organized into these three generic groups for all administrative and academic purposes.
The main thrust areas of the department are Additive Manufacturing, Bio-Mechanical Engineering, Energy Efficiency and Sustainability, Intelligent Mechanical Systems, and Micro/Nano Engineered Systems.
