The Department of Mechanical Engineering is a paradigm for others to emulate, considering the extensive research work it facilitates in diverse sectors.
The Mechanical Engineering Department of NITR Rourkela hosted a splendid fresher’s meet which was almost like a carnival the audience wont’ forget for some time now. A Mech-Carnival. On 7th September, 2014, the sophomore Mechabulls (that’s what they call themselves) organized their departmental fresher’s at LA-204, starting at around 6pm. Every fresher in that room departed for hostel after feeling contented and satisfied. So did every organizing member who had taken great pains to host that gala evening for the ME batch of 2018/19.
