Mechanical Engineering


After the introduction of “New Education System Plan in” 1972 in Nepal, Institute of Engineering (IOE) was formed under Tribhuvan University (TU) and both the Nepal Engineering Institute and Technical Training Institute were brought under Institute of Engineering. Nepal Engineering Institute was renamed as Pulchowk Campus and Technical Training Institute was renamed as Thapathali Campus. Followed by the government policy of expanding engineering education, Purwanchal campus was established in 1977 at Dharan in the eastern part of the country under the financial assistance of Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Mechanical Engineering is one of the pioneering departments in the TU, IOE, Purwanchal Campus that applies Engineering, Physics, Material science, and Turbo machinery principles to Design, Simulation, and maintain manufacture mechanical system. It has its beginning along with the TU, IOE, in 1977.

Department of Mechanical Engineering equipped modern research facilities of lab experiment available in the area of Thermodynamics, Refrigeration, Heating and Cooling System, Material science, IC engines, Turbo Machines, Robotics devices, UAV and others.
