Mechanical Engineering

Program Level:Undergraduate

Welcome to Department of Mechanical Engineering, Institute of Technology, Ambo University

The work of mechanical engineers varies by industry and function. Large number of mechanical engineers works in erection and commissioning of industrial plants, production operations, maintenance, technical sales, etc.; few are engaged in research, testing, and design work. Many are administrators or managers while some work as consultants. Some of the typical job profiles that Mechanical Engineers, in various capacities, perform include. design, development and manufacturing of products and machines for industrial and consumer use. 

    Design industrial plant layout, equipment selection, plant erection, commissioning, and operation and maintenance; installation of machinery and piping production and testing of engineering material design of industrial gas- and water supply system/component design and maintenance of automotive and construction  equipment design , installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of heating, refrigeration, air-conditioning and compressed air systems, water supply systems design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of energy conversion system/component controlling of noise, vibration and environmental  pollution design and evaluation of industrial project planning of project and total quality management factory management in the capacity of general manager, technical manager, operation manager, maintenance manager, quality controller and sales manager

      Teaching, training, research and development Invent appropriate technology solutions to address local community problems Design of agro machinery and processing equipments Construct and maintain Railway Systems manufacturing and processing of Sugar processing plant Reverse engineering Procurement of equipment and machinery, Managing Spare parts.ets development of Specification of mechanical components.    Taking into  consideration the requirements of modern industries the department has realized the implementation of the following four specializations (streams) in the present undergraduate engineering course. namely;

      • Mechanical Design,
      • Manufacturing,
      • Automotive(Motor vehicle), and
      • Thermal
