Welcome to the department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), one of the top Mechanical Engineering programmes in Africa with a nearly 60-year history. We have a long standing tradition of excellence in teaching, research and community service bringing together internationally leading staff and extraordinary students. The ME Programme was one of the three Bachelor of Science programmes (Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering) that started the then School of Engineering after the University was established in 1961. The University awarded its first batch of students in BSc Mechanical Engineering Programme in 1964. The programme has been one of the most attractive to prospective engineering candidates ever since.
