Mechanical Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar aims at producing graduates ready to work in diverse multidisciplinary areas that are developing. The department provides excellent education in the application of the traditional blend of core areas of dynamics, vibrations, structural analysis, materials, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer and control theory for the analysis, design and manufacturing of a wide variety of mechanical systems. The discipline also provides strong training in modern developments in product design, mechatronics, nano-mechanics, advanced materials, robotics, CAD/CAM, modern manufacturing systems and computational analysis. Specializations in Automobile, Aerospace, Renewable Energy Systems, Bio-medical Devices, Computational Engineering, and Systems Engineering are being introduced in the undergraduate curriculum. The students undergo extensive course work, project work and laboratory experience during their studies.

The Department faculty is a blend of people with an extensive teaching, research and consulting experience and others who are relatively recent graduates full of energy, enthusiasm and aspiration of an exciting and long academic career. The current research interests of Mechanical Engineering faculty include Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics, Fluid-Structure Interaction, Polymer Composites, Dynamics and Control of Fluid-Thermal Systems, Hydrodynamic Stability, Manufacturing Processes and Systems and High Performance Computational Modeling of Engineered Systems.

A large number of students undergo summer internships in reputed academic institutes and industry. The academic institutes include The Johns Hopkins University USA, Caltech USA, University of Rhodes Island USA, Laboratoire TREFLE Ensam France, and EPFL Switzerland. Tata motors, HMT, Fluidyn and Electrotherm are some of the industries providing internships to our students.
