Mechanical engineering is one of the important branches of engineering which in general has a noticeable role in improving the life total quality and promotion of security of human life and also creating a promoting economy.  It can a human be stated that Mechanical Engineering is one of the broadest engineering fields from the viewpoint of the scope of activities and applications.

It is the applied section of physics. Using basic physics and mathematics, it deals with the study of processes of energy conversion, the motion of objects, and the incoming forces on them. Given the results of its studies, it tries to put forth a new plan for technology and industry and paves the route of human progress.

Mechanical engineers, apply the basic principles of force, energy, motion, and heat and with their specialized knowledge, they design mechanical systems, devices, and processes and manufacture them. Mechanical engineers produce a broad range of devices, products, and processes. For example, engines and automobile and airplanes control systems, electrical power plants, medical devices, various parts and pieces of engines with microscopic dimensions to huge gear wheels, laser technology, design and manufacturing with the help of a computer, automation, and robotics, kinds of consumer products from air conditioning sets to personal computers and sports equipment, machines, and devices which produce each of these products massively are all areas related to mechanical engineering. 

Finally, it can be said that the majority of tools and instruments have applications in humans daily lives, and in another word, for every vehicle which moves or consumes energy, most possibly, mechanical engineering for inner has had a role in its design or manufacture.

Department of Mechanical Engineering of GUAT has started its activities in 2012 with the admission of students to Masters degree programs of any Conversion.  After that, the majors of Applied Design and Manufacturing were launched. And then the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Materials was founded and the majors of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Engineering were integrated with it.

Department of Energy Conversion is now acting with three full-time faculty members and several visiting professors
