Mechanical Engineering Department of Amirkabir University of Technology with more than fifty years leadership in Mechanical Engineering was founded in 1957 which has trained many distinguished scientists in Iran and all over the world. Mechanical engineering was one of the first academic programs established at Amirkabir University of Technology. The M.Sc program was established later in 1971. This Department was one of the first in the country to inaugurate Ph.D. programs in mechanical engineering. Today the department is truly a national and international department with over 40 academic staff and 800 students who are studying in undergraduate and graduate levels. Teaching is by means of lectures, laboratory classes and tutorials. The studies familiarize with the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and chemistry. Basic sciences are also taught and practical experience is gained in the workshops and laboratories. Therefore, the high quality graduates with fundamental knowledge and practical skill are expected to involve in different industrial activities and team works. The department has contracts with the governmental sectors and individual industries to serve projects. The faculty members of this department are also very active in the area of publications. Every year their papers are published in respective domestic or international journals, or accepted for presentation at international and domestic conferences.

Major laboratories are : Heat transfer; fluid mechanics; thermodynamics; hydro pneumatics; vibration and dynamics of machines; nondestructive testing and exact measurement systems, together with advanced laboratories such as CAD/DAM, robotics, CNC and a special production shop. Major workshops include: welding; casting; modeling and metal forming. Research activities and interests include: Robotics; design and optimization of robots; shell and plate; internal combustion engine design and optimization; computational fluid dynamics; numerical methods; adaptive and fuzzy control and design of CNC machines.
