About The Department

The Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT (BHU), was founded in 1919, under the remarkable leadership of Prof Charles A King, the first Head of Department and Principal of the erstwhile Banaras Engineering College (BENCO). Subsequently, over the past ninety-five years, the Department has grown to become the largest academic unit in not only IIT (BHU) but also the entire Banaras Hindu University.

The Department is known for producing some of the most exemplary technocrats of the nation. The postgraduate and the doctoral programmes in the Department are well established with infrastructural facilities available for advanced studies and research in a wide range of specializations, including Machine Design, Production Engineering, Heat Power Engineering, and Industrial Management. The Department boasts of a highly qualified faculty, with vast experience in various fields of Mechanical Engineering.
