Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is one of the most important majors in the professions and job opportunities in the world. It is entirely involved in the design, development and construction of all moving and non-moving devices and also the systems which are created by the technology each day. The mechanism of all operating machines as well as the production of power are subjects under consideration in Mechanical Engineering. Strong creativity, research, design, developments, test, manufacture and sale of equipment for these purposes are the basic issues of concern for a Mechanical Engineer.
Students of Mechanical Engineering learn about Materials, Solid and Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Control, Instrumentation, Design, and Manufacturing to understand mechanical systems. Specialized Mechanical Engineering subjects can be classified into Biomechanics, Cartilage-Tissue Engineering, Energy Conversion, Laser-Assisted Materials Processing, Combustion, MEMS, Microfluidic Devices, Fracture Mechanics, Nanomechanics, Mechanisms, Micropower Generation, Tribology (Friction and Wear), and Vibrations.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad was established in 1986. Its general aim is to train professionals and researchers highlighting, broadening and deepening their knowledge in a particular context. Its objective is to study the latest scientific achievements in a particular field, to acquire management skills and to identify research methods. The Bachelor’s program at the Department of Mechanical Engineering was founded in 2006. An undergraduate student will start with an introduction to key Mechanical Engineering topics, such as Statics and Dynamics, Thermodynamics, Fluid Dynamics, Stress Analysis, Mechanical Design and Technical Drawing. As the course progresses, there should be more opportunities to specialize in a particular field within which Mechanical Engineering skills are applied, such as Vehicle Design, Robotics, Nanotechnology or Energy.
Masters students at the Department of Mechanical Engineering will be able to study in any of the following areas: Applied Design, Energy Conversion, Manufacturing and Prod., Aerospace (Aerodynamics), Aerospace (Aerospace Structures), Aerospace (Propulsion) branches of this field. This course duration is for two years and it covers two main areas of education and research.
The highest level of degree awarded at the Department of Mechanical Engineering is the Ph.D. degree which may also be called a Research Degree or a Doctorate. The course consists of a coordinated set of educational and research activities. The aim of the Ph.D. program, which started in 1997, is to train and educate individuals capable of expanding the frontiers of knowledge in their specialty. Being familiar with methods of advanced research as well as the latest foundations of education, Ph.D. students are able to innovate in science and technology fields. Ph.D. students admitted to this department can study in branches of Mechanical Engineering namely Applied Design (Solid Mechanics), Applied Design (Control Dynamics and Vibration) Energy Conversion, Aerospace (Aerodynamics), Aerospace (Aerospace Structures).
