Welcome Message From HOD

It is my pleasure and honour to introduce Department of Mechanical Engineering at the NIT Jalandhar. Mechanical Engineering has traditionally been thought as a professional discipline, applying principles from engineering, physics and maths, in design, analysis, manufacturing of mechanical systems, and the associated transfer and flow of energies from one form to another. In the present era of technology marvel, it is at the centre of almost all application areas, from health services to communications, transportations, and all the infrastructures that you see around. Mechanical Engineers these days need to play proactive role working in multidisciplinary teams to solve the technical and societal problems in their respective domains.

Department of Mechanical Engineering at NITJ has been consistently doing well. This reflects in the continual effort of our academic, research and the quality of our students. We believe in a broad education which instils a sense of lifelong learning, community and leadership values in students, together with an appreciation of global issues. Apart from classroom teaching, our people indulge themselves in hands-on teaching-learning practice and that fruits in different recognitions at national and international levels.

Our distinguished faculty and well equipped laboratories showcase the diverse research interests, and in many instances, new devices and better industrial processes developed here at NITJ Mechanical Engineering. Our research ranges from human concerned mechatronics to automotive as well as from refrigeration and heat transfer to materials and manufacturing science. The department gained highly acclaimed appraisal from concerned fellows globally based upon the disclosures resulting from the research done over here and obviously, it is a reflection of good work ambience at the department. However, to widen up our views and learning, we also amalgamate ourselves to several premier institutes of the nation and abroad.

The department provides well-organized curricula to educate high-level researchers and engineers. The present education program offers undergraduate and post graduate (M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering) courses and doctoral research in Mechanical engineering. We believe that this engineering synthesis will continuously produce many talented researchers and engineers, and then lead the progress of technology in mechanical engineering, contributing to the sustainable growth of the society.

This website provides an overview of the academic programs, research activities of our department, research facilities, profiles of faculty members, and details of student activities. We hope that whether you are a prospective undergraduate or graduate student, or work in industry, or another university, or a visitor, you will find this website to be informative.

If you have further questions after browsing this website, please do not hesitate to contact us. You may also correspond with individual faculty members, or contact them by email, using the addresses shown on the faculty pages. 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.

Best Wishes,

Dr. Dinesh Kumar Shukla
