Facilities and Equipment

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering has a suitable educational and research space including classroom, amphitheater, drawing studio, workshop and educational and research laboratories to carry out relevant work. With the completion of the building under construction, these spaces will be upgraded to the standard level. Currently, 4 educational workshops and 7 specialized laboratories are active in the faculty. Also, 9 research laboratories have been set up to conduct advanced and up-to-date research.
  • Teaching

    Theoretical Courses offered by the department of thermo-fluids are taught in theoretical approach in faculty of mechanic engineering. It is also noted that practical courses such as fluid mechanics laboratory, heat transfer laboratory and thermodynamics laboratory are held in the Faculty of Engineering. Because these laboratories affiliated to the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering are still located in the Faculty of Engineering.
  • Research

    Research activities:

    Authoring and translating more than 20 book titles and carrying out more than 50 research projects have been the result of the work of mechanical engineering professors and students since the beginning of their work. Also, the publication of scientific and research articles, articles in conventions and conferences, patents and other research activities have made the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering always one of the most successful and progressive faculties of Guilan University in the field of research.

    Future development:
    Currently, the main building of the faculty with the infrastructure of 8000 square meters is under construction. Launching a master's degree in mechatronics engineering, revising and updating courses and chapters, and increasing the number of faculty members are on the agenda of the faculty.
