From the Desk of Dean

Welcome you for visiting our Faculty of Mechanical Engineering website. There are six departments namely, Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME), Department of Textile Engineering (TE), Department of Industrial and Production Engineering (IPE), Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering (MME), Department of Chemical Engineering (ChE), and Department of Food Engineering (FE) and one institute namely Institute of Energy Engineering (IEE) under this family.       

The Department of Mechanical Engineering of this University has undergone through several stages of evolution and progress since its establishment in 1980 and started with class size of 40 students. Now, it’s class size is 120 students. The graduate program leads to M.Engg. / M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in basic disciplines of mechanical engineering and various multi-disciplinary fields.

Department of Textile Engineering (TE) started its journey from 2005 with class size of 60 students. Recently, it has launched M.Engg. / M.Sc. in Textile Engineering Program for the textile graduates.

The department of Industrial and Production Engineering focuses on the study of manufacturing processes, management science, and the improvement of the productivity, quality and operation of a system. It was established in 2011 to offer the Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Production Engineering (BSc. in IPE) degree. Each year, the department admits 30 undergraduate students to develop them as competent engineers with managerial capabilities for our industries.

The Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering, DUET, Gazipur has been offering Under- graduate Program since its inception of 2019. The course curricula have been designed compatible to the existing and emerging needs of the industry.

The department of Chemical and Food Engineering has started its journey under the Faculty in 2017. Currently it is offering bachelor engineering degree separately under the Department of Chemical Engineering and Department of Food Engineering with a capacity of undertaking 20 students per year in each department. Currently Food Engineering department is offering undergraduate degree named ‘Bachelor of Science in Food Engineering’. Moreover, postgraduate programs are to be offered soon. 

The Institute of Energy Engineering (IEE), started its journey in 2016. The efficient use and preservation of energy for the generations to come had been and will remain the utmost priority for any civilization on earth. With the challenges of the scarce energy sector and dying environment, IEE has started its endeavor in search of new avenues to meet the daily need for energy. IEE has been offering Postgraduate program related to regional and global research and higher education in clean energy production, energy efficiency, energy conservation, energy storage, energy management and other related fields of Energy Engineering.

The expert teachers of this faculty teach the students and prepare them for the modern and update technology of the world. Technical Seminars, conferences and workshops are arranged frequently to increase the expertise of the teachers, students, researchers of this region and the obtained knowledge is being implemented in the region to reduce the poverty of the people. Graduate students can look forward to being immersed in a vibrant research-intensive environment in any of the Departments under the Faculty as they pursue a higher degree leading to a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or Master of Science in Engineering(M.Sc. Engineering)  and Master of Engineering (M. Engineering). They are closely mentored by the expert Faculty Members.

Thanks to every visitors and well wishers.

Best wishes
