Mechanical Engineering


“A scientist can discover a new star, but he cannot make one. He would have to ask an engineer to do it for him” — Gordon L. G.

Vision-Vision of the department is to get recognized regionally, nationally, and internationally in providing mechanical engineering education, leading to well qualified engineers having innovative concepts, strong technical background, and regards to human values.
Mission-The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is to impart quality education to students and enhance their technical skills; to create knowledge, technologies and ideas through fundamental research in the science and technology of mechanical engineering and its application; to share knowledge through educational programs and spread of new discoveries; and to develop the professional potential of faculty, staff, and students.

About the department:

Mechanical Engineering is one of the major engineering disciplines. Its principles are involved in the design, development and construction of nearly all of the physical devices and systems that modern technology produces. Mechanical engineers are also concerned with the operations of all kinds of machineries and the production of power. They must conceive research, design, develop, test, manufacture and sell equipment for these purposes. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at National Institute of Technology, Arunachal Pradesh was established in August 2013. The department offers four year degree B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering with an annual intake of 30 students. The Department is going to start PG programme (2 years M.Tech.) in Mechanical System Design and Innovation Technology from July 2016 and has also initiated research programme leading to Ph.D from 2015-16.

Within a very short period this Department already developed some New Laboratories with modern state of art facilities. A continuous effort is always laid on setting up new laboratories and improvement of facilities in the existing laboratories.

Our objective is to provide students with a quality mechanical engineering education, enhance the understanding and application of mechanical engineering principles, imparting knowledge with imagination for techno-economical development of the country, and improving the quality of life of our citizens through teaching, research, and innovation. The mission is further to provide an environment where students will get extensive avenues to excel, improve technical exposure and develop personality and then get recruited in reputed organizations with global presence, in various roles and responsibilities and also to meet the mission of Arunachal Pradesh, North East region and the nation at large.
