The Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and the largest department in terms of faculty, students and activities in various directions in MNNIT, Allahabad. The department is broadly divided into four academic groups:

  • Design Engineering

  • Production and Industrial Engineering

  • Thermal Engineering

  • Chemical Engineering

Within each area, the department combines strengths in the traditional as well as the modern. The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers three Bachelor of Technology programmes in the area of Mechanical Engineering, Production and Industrial Engineering, and Chemical Engineering. Every year about 150 students are admitted for these three programmes. The department offers B. Tech, M. Tech and PhD programs with a wide choice of specializations, electives and research areas.
