About ME read more

Department of Mechanical Engineering is the oldest and broadest of the Engineering branches also known as MOTHER branch of all Engineering.  The Department of Mechanical Engineering at RUET is the oldest department established in 1964. The Department offers Undergraduate (UG) and Post-graduate (Master and Ph.D.) programs.  Currently, 180 students get admitted to the Undergraduate program (4 years duration) in every academic year. The Department also received a significant number of students in the Master's program (>30) and Ph.D. programs every year. The department has strong academic strength and research expertise in its diversified fields. The students, teachers, officers, and employees of the Mechanical Engineering Department are providing tireless efforts to maintain the international standards of teaching and research of this Department. This department has more than 30 prominent faculty members of which >14 are Ph.D. holders received their Masters and Ph.D. degree from world ranked foreign universities. All are integrated into the developmental works of the department and conducting teaching and research activities with the highest endeavours and enthusiasm to meet the challenge of the 21st century. The Department has 5 core laboratories such as Thermal Engineering and Testing Laboratory, Fluid Mechanics and Energy Laboratory, Applied Mechanics and Machine Design Laboratory, and Material Engineering, Metallurgy Laboratory, and Computer Laboratory. The core laboratories are well equipped with modern facilities and able to facilitate more than 25 key research topics to be conducted. Moreover, the department has workshop facilities such as Machine Shop, Welding Shop, Fitting Shop, Foundry Shop and Wood Shop, Boiler shop, etc as a support to the core laboratory.  Currently, all the Ph.D. holders and faculty members of the department are continuing their research works using modern facilities. The faculty members have sufficient experience/knowledge as they worked in rich-laboratories during their Ph.D. degree in the world ranked foreign universities. You are welcome to our most talented Mechanical family of RUET engaging with us, whether this is as a teacher, as a student, a researcher, or an industrial collaborator.

Why Mechanical Engg. at RUET read more

Why ME at RUET:

Mechanical engineering is the broadest and oldest branch of engineering. It is called as mother of all engineering branches. Mechanical engineers are involved with the design, manufacturing, testing, analysis, control, operation, and maintenance of the machines and engines you see in our modern lives. Mechanical engineers deal with all aspects of energy conversion into work. Mechanical engineers are multi-skilled and they enjoy excellent starting salaries. Mechanical engineers are global engineers i.e; there is no country in the world that doesn't need mechanical engineers.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at RUET prepares graduates for immediate employment in a wide variety of job sectors.  The students and academics are talent in this department for their independent thinking and expertise. You will gain a thorough understanding of mechanical engineering from ME, RUET. The Department of ME, RUET holds globally renowned professors and you will learn from the best. The academic profile and research expertise of the ME faculty members are very high. The classrooms are well-decorated modern facilities with a Wi-Fi internet connection. Our industry-university collaboration in line with the wider community creates a knowledge-sharing platform that enriches student experiences outside the classroom.   We incorporate the latest industry knowledge and technology updates.   You will get state-of-the-art labs with highly specialized research facilities in this Department. Our teaching courses are frequently reviewed to keep graduates up to date and maintain global quality. During your degree, you will get an opportunity to gain hands-on experience, participate in research, exhibition, and competition, contribute to team projects both nationally and internationally, and develop leadership and team-building skills. 

Starting your Degree:

We have designed the course content to make engineering more interesting for beginners. We frequently reviewed the course content to engage the incoming student with internationally recognized and up-to-date programs. During your first year of study, you will learn fewer technical courses and more advanced physics, chemistry, and mathematics. Because this is required for a skilled problem solver in today's mechanical engineers. As you go to the upper level of your program, more technical courses will be introduced and you will do more assignments, exams, quizzes, etc. Daily class tutorials are the main resources of your program to prepare yourself for the future. You have opportunity to use state-of-the-art technology in the lab to learn, experiment, and test your ideas.


You will receive a wide variety of offers upon completing your degree in the mechanical engineering department. The opportunities can be highlighted through the following:
  • You can engage all aspects of the energy supply and the delivery system including power generation, pipelines, and petroleum production.
  •  Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) in building and industrial sectors (pharmaceutical, food process, textile, manufacturing industries, etc) for efficient energy use.
  • Designing and controlling the robotic system for industrial application.
  • Designing mechanical devices for biomedical applications.
  • Designing and developing advanced renewable energy technology like solar PV, solar thermal, wind turbine, hydro, geothermal, tidal, etc. 
  • Designing and manufacturing the vehicle from automobiles to aircraft.
