Welcome Message from the Head of Department

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Since establishment of this College, the primary goal of Mechanical Engineering Department is to training and prepare our graduates for leadership roles in their future careers. We offer a BEng program in Mechanical Engineering and Automotive Technology which is awarded by University of West England (UWE) in Bristol, United Kingdom. Excellence education and quality research would lead to distribution of cutting edge technologies and integration of our students with the latest developments in mechanics, dynamics, thermo-fluid, energy, and manufacturing.

We aim to create future leaders in Mechanical Engineering field to solve society challenges and tackle industry difficulties. Our students are provided with a solid and challenging education system which stimulates and encourages their creativity and also blends mechanical engineering practice with technical research.

Our department is proud to have highly qualified and committed faculty members who are well recognized in their fields and have received several honours and awards from engineering societies around the world.

Our department looks forward to continue training future engineers and carry on contributing our duty as an educational institute to the society.

Kind regards
Dr. Pooyan Rahmanivahid
