Since its founding half-century ago, the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DoME) still serves as the identity of ITS. When ITS was founded in 1957, the dream of DoME was picking up a steam, although it would take several years to settle the goals. With the help from Asian Development Bank (ADB) in 1973-1981, the DoME revitalized the facilities of the classes and laboratories. Moreover, in 1984 the faculty members obtained such extraordinary opportunity to continue their academic levels into the graduate studies (master and doctoral programs) abroad. Consequently, the DoME is capable to deliver alumni of distinctive quality. Thousands of alumni have been sent out into the world armed with a world-beating knowhow, a roll-up-your-sleeves attitude, and memories of an institution like no other.
By 2010s, with research on a roll, the academic leaders of the DoME turned their attention to reinvent the research laboratories, which produced 12 different research laboratories. The changes brought the DoME new respect and carved out a spot among the national greatest departments. The qualities of bachelor, master, and doctoral programs are constantly maintained for excellence and nationally accredited. Due to its credible reputation both in academics and research, the bachelor, master, and doctoral programs were very well appreciated and accredited A by National Accreditation Board.
As one of the oldest department in ITS, the commitments of the DoME to ITS extended even beyond academics. The DoME rejuvenated the monumental beautification effort that created the stunning campus we enjoy today. The DoME now is home for more than 800 students.
