Welcome to the Department of Mechanical and Production Engineering (MPE) of Ahsanullah University of Science & Technology (AUST). The MPE department aims to broaden its focus by combining two engineering programs in order to provide an innovative course curriculum to future engineers. The Department comprises Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Industrial and Production Engineering (IPE) programs. The Department was established in 2010 with the ambition to produce well-qualified graduate engineers and develop graduates as future leaders. Approximately 1600 Students (800 in IPE, 800 in ME) are currently studying in the Department. The current intake of students per calendar year is 200 for ME and 200 for IPE.
Our students have previously proven their worth by competing in and winning prizes in several national and international contests. Students from the MPE department have participated in and obtained many awards in motorsport competitions in Formula Student UK (FSUK), Hult prize international competition, the PTAK prize, etc. With an industrial background and research orientation in tandem, our students develop the wherewithal to partake in collaborations and competitions in worldwide institutions. Currently, the department is hosting the student chapters of the laudable international professional engineering institutions of IEOM, ASHRAE, IMechE, and ASME.
The graduates from the department have attained distinguished positions in the industry, government, and academia locally and abroad. Our alumni have positioned themselves in a number of reputable national and international businesses, and many among them have also availed the opportunity to complete their post-graduate studies at various reputed institutions around the world. The Department looks forward to being an integral part of the solution to the emerging challenges both at the local and global levels.
