 Department Chair's Foreword

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering, UTP!


Mechanical Engineering is the application of engineering principles to the design, development and manufacturing of mechanical devices and systems. The programme's educational objective is to produce technically qualified Mechanical Engineers with the potential to become leaders in the Energy and Manufacturing Sectors who are committed to the sustainable development of Energy and Manufacturing Sectors for the betterment of society and nation.


At present, there are about fifty seven 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 more than fifteen modern laboratories for both undergraduate instructions and post graduate research works. It is organised into four clusters: Energy Systems, Product Technology, Deepwater Technology and Facilities Engineering.  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.  At present the Mechanical Engineering Department is ranked in the Top 200 in the QS World University Ranking by subject. It is forming the technical backbone of the country to facilitate and sustain its rapidly developing industrial growth​
