About the Department

Welcome to Mechanical Engineering Department, Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology (MNNIT) Allahabad, Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, India. We are the largest community of excellent, energetic, and dynamic faculty, staff and students in the institute. The department is one of the oldest as it started in year 1961. The department is having highly qualified and experienced faculty (36 faculty members) in all streams of Mechanical Engineering. The department is broadly divided into three academic streams in which students receive outstanding education with a wide choice of specializations, electives and research areas. These three academic streams are: (i) Design Engineering, (ii) Production and Industrial Engineering, and (iii) Thermal Engineering.

The department offers Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) programmes in -

  1. Mechanical Engineering (ME)
  2. Production and Industrial Engineering (PIE)

Every year students are admitted through JEE (mains) and 15% of this intake is through Direct Admission to Students Abroad (DASA) scheme for the above two B.Tech. programmes. Some students are also admitted through ICCR and MEA (Govt. of India) Schemes.

The department offers four semester (i.e. 2 year) Master of Technology (M.Tech., Regular) programmes in –

  1. Design Engineering (DN)
  2. Production Engineering (PR)
  3. Thermal Engineering (TH)
