The Bachelor in Technology (B.Tech.) in Mechanical Engineering at BIT Mesra is a four-year programme which is offered at BIT Main centre as well as BIT'S Deoghar and Patna extension centre. During the first three semesters of the B.Tech. programme, students follow a syllabus of core engineering modules, which are common to all branches of engineering, plus some modules that are specific to the degree scheme. The courses also have a wide practical element based on the lecture modules, including laboratory work, team projects and industrial tours and seminars.
In addition, every student carries out a professional project in their final years. The professional project gives students a chance to apply their engineering skills to a real engineering problem. Many professional projects are industrially driven or linked, giving students direct exposure to the industry as part of their studies. There is also a strong tutorial system, which provides students with a point of contact with a member of staff who can advise on welfare issues as well.
