  • Inculcate critical thinking abilities among students and develop entrepreneurial skills, leadership qualities and innovative ideas.
  • The graduating students from Mechanical Engineering should have a comprehensive background of physical sciences, mathematics and foundations of Mechanical Engineering to be able to solve application level problems related to core Mechanical Engineering and interdisciplinary areas.
  • The graduating students from Mechanical Engineering needs to develop expertise and acumen in core areas like Mechanical design, thermal engineering, materials and manufacturing science to a satisfaction of employers.
  • The program orients its graduating students towards contemporary areas of socio-technological issues like energy crisis, pollution, formal practices of human resources and industrial relations in order to achieve the professional development of the student.

Upon successful completion of the program, the students would have the following attributes.

  • Apply the fundamental knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering in the solution of complex Mechanical engineering problems.
  • Identify, formulate, analyze and solve complex mechanical engineering problems
  • Design solutions for complex mechanical engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, and cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering tools, including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  • The contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  • Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  • Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  • Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  • Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with the society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIST Indore. Mechanical Engineering is possibly one of the broadest stream among all the engineering disciplines. It comprises a great deal of interdisciplinary work. Mechanical Engineers continuously develop new technologies and products with the use of principles of science and knowledge of materials, design and manufacturing. Creation of cars, airplanes, medical devices, robots and micro sensors require a substantial involvement of mechanical engineering. We started our journey in the year of 2003.At the commencement of under graduate programme in Mechanical Engineering, the intake capacity was 60 which is now increased to 120. The department also offers M. Tech in Machine Design. Our aim is to spread knowledge and technologies through quality teaching, research and its applications in mechanical and allied disciplines. The department has a team of well qualified and dedicated faculties. In addition to the primary teaching duties, all of them have their publications in international as well as national Journals of repute for attaining perfection in their profession.

The Department is actively associated in grooming the engineering graduates in Mechanical Engineering by nurturing them with inputs from various basic and specialized subjects including Production, Industrial, Thermal and Design Engineering. A wide selection of projects, seminars and training facilities besides technical visits to industrial enterprises and specialized lectures from industry specialists generates enormous potential and confidence among the students enabling them to independently handle the life size problems in their engineering careers.

The department is associated with professional bodies like SAE and QCFI. Various activities organized by these professional bodies provides a platform to students to gain knowledge and interact with students and faculties of other colleges/universities as well as Industry professionals. Students have taken part in various events and secured top positions in SAE competitions like Baja. Such events test the student’s technical skills, teamwork and leadership quality.

The department has well equipped laboratories to impart sound practical knowledge of the subject. The practical aspects of the curriculum are in no way less important than the theoretical knowledge for the proper understanding of the basic concepts. With this objective in mind a sound practical knowledge is imparted to the students. Some of the laboratories are Strength of Materials Lab, Material Science Lab, Kinematics/ Dynamics of Machines Lab, Heat & Mass Transfer Lab, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Lab, Internal Combustion Engines Lab, Energy Conversion Lab, Fluid Mechanics Lab, Fluid Machines Lab, CAD/CAM Lab, CNC Machines Lab, Metrology Lab etc.

Our department looks forward to contribute in solving the technological challenges of the society with active participation from all sections of the society. Thank you for visiting us.
