  • Dual Degree (IDD)
    Department has strong undergraduate program in mechanical engineering offering B.Tech. and M. Tech dual degree 5-year program called Integrated Dual Degree (IDD). Students take up a major research project for 1 year after completing their 4 years of BTech programme. Show(+) Both BTech and MTech degree is awarded. IID students are offered monthly scholarships during their final year of degree programme, however, they need to either qualify GATE or secure minimum of 8.0 CGPA.   Hide(-)
  • M.Tech
    Mechanical engineering department offers 2 years full time postgraduate (Master in Technology) programs in following 4 areas. Show(+) M.Tech programme comprises of core courses, specialization related electives, institute electives and supervised research exposition. M.Tech thesis enables graduate students to display their skills in performing independent research in both fundamental and applied problems of mechanical engineering. High standard is expected from the M. Tech thesis resulting in quality research publications or technology development in terms patents or prototype development.   Hide(-)
  • Ph.D.
    Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) program is a department’s flagship program that attracts motivated students from different parts of the country. Interested students can choose their research areas from broad discipline of machine design, thermal and fluid engineering, production engineering an industrial engineering. PhD program comprises of course work for prescribed credits with a minimum prescribed performance and a research dissertation reflecting original and independently performed research contributions in the respective area. To get admission into the Ph.D program, students need to qualify both written exam and interview Show(+) Call for admission is announced twice in a year. All admitted students are required to successfully complete PhD comprehensive examination after completing the prescribed course work. PhD candidacy is confirmed only after the student has been declared successful in qualifier/comprehensive examination. PhD thesis is expected to result in high quality publications in peer reviewed international journals and conferences or patents..   Hide(-)

Historical Background

The Department of Mechanical Engineering came into existence in 1919 under the leadership of Professor Charles A. King, the first Head of the Department and Principal of the erstwhile Banaras Engineering College. Over the last ninety nine years, the department has grown four folds to become the largest department in IIT (BHU),. Show(+) Varanasi. The post-graduate and doctoral program in the department is well-established and infrastructural facilities exist for studies and research for a range of specialisations such as Machine Design, Thermal and Fluid Engineering, Production Engineering and Industrial Management.Hide(-)
