Mechanics is the paradise of the mathematical sciences.
'Leonhard Euler'
Mechanical Engineering ofAmirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) is the same age as Tehran Polytechnic (born in 1958) and is the first engineering field that has started work as a mechanical institute.In nearly sixty years of educational and research activity, thousands of experienced and educated engineers from this faculty have studied knowledge at different degrees and have taken a prominent and exemplary role in managing different levels of management, industry and the country policy that, their presence in universities and industry inside and outside the country is obvious and distinct. The faculty members of this faculty have been selected from the educated and knowledgeable graduates of the top universitiesinside and outside the country and are trying to share their scientific, research, cultural, and social experiences with others.

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) is one of the first faculties that started its activities in 1958 with some students in the field of mechanical engineering.The first series of graduates of the faculty in 1961 received a master's degree in mechanical engineering, which later became the bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering with two majors: Solid and Thermo Fluids.The Master of Mechanical Engineering course started in the early 1971s. After the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and the reopening of universities, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering also started to present Manufacturing Engineering.Also, with the establishment of the doctoral course in mechanical engineering in 1990, this faculty is among the first scientific centers that started the doctoral course in the country.

Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering that tries to analyze, design, build, or optimize components, mechanisms, processes, and systems while considering ethical codes and economic issues by applying the laws of engineering, physics, and mathematics to real issues. Those whose work is based on energy conversion and heat and mass transfer.
