NIT Sikkim

    The Department of Mechanical Engineering is primarily concerned with the application of physics and material science for design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems.

    The Department was established in 2013 with the inception of the Institute to produce globally competent Mechanical Engineers capable of contribution to the society through innovation and works in multidisciplinary fields. The department offers 4 Year B.Tech. programme, where the students are encouraged to acquire knowledge with a perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences. Academic course-works have been designed to facilitate students with the abilities of leadership, team-work and technical expertise through the knowledege and application of science and engineering.

    Students are provided knowledge to understand the fundamentals of basic sciences and humanities and problem solving skills required in industrial applications and involvement in international environment. The department also welcomes students from other departments of the institute for their time-to-time academic and research needs. The department is planning to start post graduation program soon. The department offers PhD programs in major thrust areas viz. Thermal Engineering, Fluid Mechanics, Design & Dynamics and Production Engineering and also multi-disciplinary fields. High Performance Computing (HPC) facility is also available in the institute and research works is going on using this data intensive computing system in the fields of Mechanical Engineering (CFD, FEM etc).

The various aspects of Mechanical Engineering fields are as:
  • Applied Mechanics
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Thermal Engineering
  • Machine Design
  • Production Engineering
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Manufacturing Technology
