Department of Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering is aware of the important role of mechanical engineering needs to play in areas such as energy and environmental systems, materials, transportation, robotics, manufacturing, information technology, biomechanics, and health care - many of which are national priorities.
The Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Production Systems Engineering have recently merged to better respond to the needs of society. The integration produced a rich portfolio of research and academic activities in areas ranging from nano-scale processing to health-care robotics up to supply chain management. As such, the new department offers a diverse range of academic programs in 4 basic areas of specialization: Mechanical Systems Design, Materials and Manufacturing, Systems Control and Robotics, and Energy and Environment.
The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at TUT is to prepare students with the knowledge and ability to improve, evaluate, design and control safe, sustainable, and cost-effective technologies in order to make innovative and useful contributions to humanity. With this in mind, we seek to enhance both research and education and inspire new generations to create breakthrough solutions to serve all people.
