Message from Head of Department

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Tirupati was established in Jul 2015. As of Fall 2020, the department comprises thirteen full-time faculty members, twelve staff members and is home to about ninety undergraduate students, and more than sixty graduate students. Our students come from various states across the union of India, and thus, contribute to the diversity of the department.

The department houses well equipped laboratories, which are used for both instruction and research. Our faculty and research scholars are actively involved in research in both conventional and new areas in Mechanical Engineering. Additionally, we also promote interdisciplinary research, and collaborate with colleagues in other departments, both within the institute and outside, including those in other countries, to identify and work on research projects common to multiple branches of science and engineering. Our major thrust areas in research include Advanced ManufacturingAdvanced MaterialsRenewable EnergyTheoretical and applied mechanics, and Precision Agriculture and Food Processing.

I invite you to explore life within the department, including academics, research, and other outreach activities. If you need additional information or if you have any questions, please feel free to write to me.
