B.E. in Mechanical Engineering (subdivisions)

Since its establishment in 1994 as one of the oldest engineering programs in University, the Department has evolved and transformed itself in many ways to keep up with the global trends and academic challenges. Having completed more than 2 decades, the popularity of the department has also increased exponentially which is underscored by the increasing number of applications for the program during each academic year.


During the past 2 decades, the department has updated itself with the international courses, strengthened with physical infrastructures, channelized its academic program more into applied and research based modules from the conventional methodology. The department’s paradigm shifting move can be marked by the quality and practicability of the courses, establishment of different laboratories and research activities that are carried out with acute interest and motivation, number of qualified and experienced faculty members and student-focused management.


From 2015, the Department expands the B.E. program by subdividing its courses into 4 core divisions and increasing the number of intake from 60 to 120, with the vision of producing calibre graduate with specialization knowledge. Based upon the available resources and faculty strength, there are going to be 4 core areas. This step is going to substantiate degree of the prospective students who will be graduating as a Mechanical Engineer with skill and proficiency in one of the 4 core areas.

B.E. in Mechanical Engineering (subdivisions)- Program Description

B.E. in Mechanical Engineering (Automobile)

Automobile in Mechanical Engineering is synonymous with creativity and innovation to adopt modern automobile technology. With the skill ranging from mechanical design, electronic systems, manufacturing techniques and management, Automobile engineering is increasing globally in its outlook and multidisciplinary operation to learn about transport efficiency, sustainability issues and vehicle systems diagnosis. Automobile will play role in solving the energy crisis through the creation of hybrid vehicles and other related technology on a global level. Automobile looks at ways to enable vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication to increase safety and security in new forms of transport.

B.E. in Mechanical Engineering (Design & Manufacturing)

Imagination is a one of the integral parts of human mind. But with only imagination, one cannot explain or convince the world. One has to create physical blueprints of the imagination. This is where Design & Manufacturing enters. This subdivision of Mechanical Engineering is the road map to translate one’s imagination to reality. Design is the building block of all engineering sub components. Every subject has its own type of design but the basics for all are same. This sub-component of Mechanical Engineering aims in educating students with a holistic approach of design and its manufacturing. Some of the fields that this sub-component deals with are Machine Element Design, Industrial Automation, Robotics, CAD/CAM, Ergonomics, etc.

B.E. in Mechanical Engineering (Energy Technology)

The sub division of Energy Technology from Mechanical Engineering is designed to pay its part in the urgent need to change our thinking, application and energy usage pattern in regard to transforming the unsustainable exploitation of non-renewable energy resources and converting them into energy units and services.  The cluster aims to re-direct our thinking and passion towards a more sustainable and holistic energy generation society, through tapping into the plentiful available alternative energy resources and transforming them through different energy technologies and applications into user friendly energy units, for mankind’s holistic development and benefit.  It sees mankind as part of the whole ecosystem and as the jewel of creation, with the responsibility that comes along with: How we manage the available resources in such a way that we can give a responsible account for it. The cluster aims to equip professional people with some basic knowledge of most popular energy resources, renewable energy technologies and systems, their basic technological principles, their economics and their impact on the environment and how they can be integrated into the our today’s and future world energy demands and systems.

B.E. in Mechanical Engineering (Hydropower)

Hydropower has always played a cardinal role in sufficing rural and urban populace with elementary lighting facilities and basic energy requirements for household. The development and growth of hydropower in Nepal has been significantly rising in recent days due to the increasing demand of electricity and establishment of newer power plants to meet the same. In addition to the larger national projects, many small scale and rural community based hydels are emerged as a boom in terms of rural electrification. The Bachelor degree program in Mechanical Engineering (Hydropower) encompasses all the basics of hydropower, the engineering behind different components, installation, maintenance and policies. The course covers fundamentals of hydropower generation, different hydromechanical components and ancillaries of a hydropower plant, the design aspects of such mechanical equipment and hydro turbines. The course is complemented by the lab works and field visits.
