The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the National Institute of Technology, Uttarakhand was established in 2012 and currently has an intake of 20 students per year. The Department offers a four-year B.Tech. course, M.Tech. Program in Manufacturing Technology and Machine Design.and a Ph.D. program. The department has flexible academic structure with numerous core and elective courses, to facilitate the students to opt for the courses of their interest.
Presently, the department has Three Associate Professors, Ten Assistant Professors and Three Trainee Teachers. All the faculty members are well qualified from reputed institutions like IITs and NITs. The area of specialization of all faculties has a lot of diversity that covers various aspects of Mechanical Engineering and is capable to mold young minds into successful professionals.
The department is fully equipped with laboratories for core courses such as Machine Tools Laboratory, Strength of Materials Laboratory, Fluid Mechanics and Machines Laboratory, Applied Thermodynamics Laboratory, Heat Transfer Laboratory, Kinematics and Dynamics of Machines Laboratory, Computer Aided Design Laboratory and Mechanical Workshop. These laboratories have state of the art experimental setups and machineries for enhancing the practical knowledge of students at par with the cutting edge technology. The department is now expanding its wings towards elective course laboratories such as Additive Manufacturing, Measurement Laboratory, Robotics Laboratory, Mechatronics Laboratory, Automobile Laboratory, CNC Laboratory, Vibration Laboratory etc
Apart from academics, the department has collaboration with industries and research institutions to setup specialized laboratories and joint research programs. Such initiatives will provide an opportunity to the students to have feel of real on sight situations in the industries and how to handle them. The Department is working on innovative ideas in collaboration with Design Innovation Centre-NITUK for the rural development in the state of Uttarakhand.
