The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 1979. From beginning, the department mission has been to offer students high quality mechanical engineering programs. The department education program has been designed to enhance the abilities of the students with cutting edge research, critical thinking and problem solving skills. The Department currently has approximately 480 undergraduate students, over 400 M.Sc. students, and 90 Ph.D. students.
Our vision for research is to establish the Department of Mechanical Engineering as a world leader in innovation and to offer excellent research training that will benefit the wider society. Our research, conducted by 42 full time faculty members, covers a broad spectrum of topics, with a strong integration between computation and experiment, and includes areas such as computational mechanics, mechatronics, control and robotics, renewable energies, nano-fluidic and nanotechnology and precision manufacturing processes. The outcome of these researches is annually published in more than 100 articles in prestigious journals.
The department is committed to provide a supportive learning environment in which talented students are able to obtain professional and teamwork skills by conducting challenging group project as well as taking part in national and international student competitions. Our past successes in terms of achieving top awards in different student competitions demonstrate the quality of the department education and research training programs.
We endeavor to provide appropriate means for our students and scholars to engage in world-class scientific research as well as being involved in finding solutions for the national and global problems. For this purpose, the department has invested substantially in recent years on its research infrastructure and educational facilities. We expect these investments to be fruitful in terms of both high quality graduates and excellence in scientific research.
