Mechanical Engineering Department

The Mechanical Engineering Department is one of the finest departments of NRI Institute of research & technology (NIRT), Bhopal (MP) India. Established in the year 2007, NIRT’s Mechanical Department has been providing excellent learning and research opportunities for undergraduate and post graduate students, in addition to providing consultancy services to the multiple industries. Currently the department offers one under graduate programm, B.E in Mechanical Engineering, with an intake of 120 and one Post Graduate Program, M.E with specialization in Thermal Engg & Machine Designing & Robotics. with an intake of 18 seats and Diploma in mechanical engineering with intake of 60 seats. 

The department has a team of 15 highly qualified, motivated and experienced faculty with 2 doctorates (Ph.D) and rest are with M.E./M.Tech qualification in various areas of specializations. Majority of the faculty are having varied experience of industrial, teaching and research which help to serve the students in exposing them to industrial and research environment. The department is associated with professional bodies such as EICHER Tractor , Prema solution for CAD, under which various activities are being taking place. The department organizes various student level technical events regularly which include workshops, guest lectures, industrial visits and technical seminars to expose the student’s inherent talent and skills. The department also organizes events like Faculty Development Programs (FDP), conferences and workshops to expose the faculty to latest technologies.

The department also conducts various certification courses in advanced technologies such as CAD / CAM, CNC, in association with reputed professional training institutes and within the institute’s own facilities. The department has state of art laboratories and infrastructures. Various Funded Research Projects and Consultancy projects are also taken up. Students of the department are actively involved in various extracurricular activities and extension activities. Students from the department have developed Indigenous Electric Vehicle, refrigeration test rig with computer control, and also developed other projects of the national interest.


The vision of Mechanical Engineering Department is that through the excellence of its people, the Department of Mechanical Engineering will be recognized as a leader of its discipline in a manner that exemplifies the traditions of learning, discovery, and engagement. The department will be a desirable place to study and work, with our community comprising the best and the brightest, because of educational programs grounded in the mechanical engineering sciences and set within the context of meeting important societal needs.


The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering has three tenets that center on the principle of improving lives and livelihoods: to share knowledge through educational programs and the dissemination of beyond syllabus ideas, to create knowledge through research in the science and technology of mechanical engineering and to develop the professional potential of faculty, staff, and students.
