Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME)
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 2016, the same year IIT Dharwad was established.
Since its inception, the Department has been offering a four-year B.Tech. programme at the undergraduate level. At the postgraduate level, the Department offers research programs such as MS (by Research) in Mechanical Engineering and PhD programs.
The Department’s curriculum offers a distinct combination of courses with sound conceptual understanding together with practice-oriented learning elements. The theoretical rigor is imparted from a selection of courses in basic sciences and interdisciplinary topics in addition to subjects from the core mechanical engineering curriculum, which are backed by an array of hands-on laboratory courses. Several students from the recently graduated first batch of students were placed in core Mechanical industry.
The faculty of the Department come from a wide-ranging academic background and work on an expansive list of core and interdisciplinary research areas. The Department is poised to take on both global as well as local problems such as energy technologies for sustainable environment, healthcare and agricultural technologies, and other key needs of the nation.
