Mechanical Engineering is universally considered as the cornerstone of almost all fields of
engineering science. The various disciplines of mechanical engineering are ubiquitous, not only
in simple to complex applications of industry, but also in our quotidian everyday life.
Therefore, any engineering educational program should take into account the inherent multi-
disciplinary characteristics of mechanical engineering major. The Department of Mechanical
Engineering of Anwer khan modern university Dhaka has undergone through several stages of
evolution and progress since its establishment in 2018. Today, congruent with 21st century’s
requirements and in harmony with modern branches of science, such as Nanotechnology or
Bio-Mechanics, Mechatronics and emergence of modern methods of education such as virtual
or e-learning and long life self-learning skills, the mechanical engineering curricula has been
programmed based on new paradigms and futuristic visions in order to prepare engineers for
confronting the societal and ethical aspects of their professional life and the challenges of
modern technologies. The Department’s academic program can be divided basically into
undergraduate and graduate education. It has always tried to keep a well-defined and logical
balance between endeavors towards both undergraduate and graduate programs. In
undergraduate level, the program is focused in educating and training qualified engineers to
commence their profession on industrial sector and service/commercial sector with high
management and leadership skills.
