Dr. Soumya Gangopadhyay
Associate Professor
Department of Mechanical Engineering
Indian Institute of Technology Bhilai

Mechanical engineering department is one of the first established department of IIT Bhilai.

The core department offers a thorough and well decorated academic structure for theoretical understanding and their practical applications. Mechanical engineering department has efficiently combined the traditional and futuristic laboratories to inculcate technological skills among the pursuing students. In a broad sense we have an Automation lab, thermo-fluidic lab and a fabrication lab which includes Robots, 3D printing equipment, CNC machining centre, CNC turning centre, wire-cut-EDM, laser cutting machine, heat and flow measuring instruments, IC engines, UTM, and other table top facilities. The state-of-the-art laboratory equipment will enable the students to test newly learned theories and empower them to convert any idea into reality. The department efficiently covers all the traditional core areas of statics, dynamics, vibrations, structural analysis, materials, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer, along with manufacturing technologies etc. Apart from the traditional areas, department also attaches significant emphasis on more emergent areas including alternative energy, near-net-shape manufacturing and industry 4.0. The department started with B.Tech program in August 2016. Now the department is offering M.Tech and Ph.D programs in diverse fields of advanced research. We strive to contribute towards national progress by welding together the zeal and enthusiasm of the undergraduates with the knowledge and experience of the post-graduates.
