Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. The department has been the apex of mechanical engineering education and research in the country since it started to offer four year’s bachelor’s degree in 1948. At present, there are about sixty highly qualified and dedicated faculty members to prepare our students to meet the global engineering challenges of the twenty first century. The department is persistent in its effort to develop its students not only as competent engineers but also as creative and responsible members of the society.
The department maintains 17 modern laboratories for undergraduate and graduate instructions and graduate research works. It is organized into three major divisions: Thermal Engineering, Fluid Mechanics, and Applied Mechanics. A fourth division, Computation and Instrumentation, has recently been introduced to facilitate the solutions of computational problems and experimental techniques. The level of education is up-to-date, comparable to those of the best institutions of the world and justifiably appropriate to the needs of the country. The Department of Mechanical Engineering is forming the technical backbone of the country to facilitate and sustain its rapidly developing industrial growth.
