Department of Mechanical Engineering
Chairman’s Welcome Message

Dear recent and prospective students, parents, colleagues and staff, welcome to Mechanical Engineering Department.

Mechanical Engineering, one of the classical branches of engineering, has undergone significant changes in recent years to undertake the challenges in the modern world. Our department, as opened its doors in the Fall of 1996 admitting its first class of undergraduate students, is furnished with faculty members that meets the needs of the future mechanical engineers in response to these changes. Mechanical Engineering education covers both the fundamentals and practice; builds essentials for the problem-solving engineer as well as provides strategic methods for the applied scientists. The curriculum we offer includes Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Fluid mechanics, Solid mechanics, Machine design, Machine Tools&Tool Design, Tribology and manufacturing methods as essential core courses, and also provides courses from mechanical engineering practice such as Refrigeration techniques, Priciples of heat exchangers, and Internal combustion engines. In addition, courses related to recent advances in Composite Materials, Bio- Materials, Bio-fuels, Renewable and Green energy applications are also offered.

Mechanical Engineering is the profession that bridges fundamental sciences to the needs of common society and individuals. As such, an educated engineer knows and understands how to apply the fundamentals, but a mechanical engineer also understands the human needs and the society, and is able to articulate and solve their problems. The first principle in our mechanical engineering program is to educate the candidates by following this philosophical track. Mechanical Engineering graduates may find employment in various branches of industry, that may include production, maintenance, quality control, design, sheet forming and management, and in companies providing engineering services and consultancy such as in power plant technology, in the field of accessing sources of energy such as petroleum, gas,LPG in solar energy and wind energy, in metal sheet forming, metal cutting and foundaries, and many others.

Mechanical Engineering department also offers M.Sc and Ph.D degree programs in addition to B.Sc degree program. In fact, considering mechanical engineers working at site, M.Sc degree program in our department provides non-thesis option as well as master program with thesis. All of our academic personel are members of recognized engineering institutions and have long term experience in the fields of Heat Exchanger Design, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Composite Materials,Bio-Materials, and in Biofuels. With this elaborately skilled faculty members and known- people in the international area, our department proceeds with doctorate program and welcomes Ph.D candidates holding M.Sc-degree with thesis in mechanical engineering department.
