NIT Jamshedpur - Cradle of technical excellence
Department of Production and Industrial Engineering

The Department of Production & Industrial Engineering was started in year 1988 with the name of “Production Engineering & Management”. The name of this department was changed to Production & Industrial Engineering in the year 2007. The department was accredited by NBA in 2009. This core department has a sanctioned strength of 16 (Sixteen) faculty members with flexible faculty structure. Presently, there are 02 Professor, 03 Associate professors and 08 Assistant Professors. Every faculty member has received doctorate degree in different research areas. The department is running a UG course for B. Tech. (Hons.) degree in Production and industrial Engineering and a PG course in Manufacturing Systems Engineering as well as Ph. D. program in various streams of Production and Industrial Engineering. The Department is currently developing different engineering laboratories like CAD/CAM Lab., Advanced Manufacturing and Flexible manufacturing systems Lab., Non- Traditional Manufacturing lab, and Industrial Engineering & Ergonomics lab and Central workshop. Time to time curricula/syllabus is upgraded as per the market and technology requirement. The department has also proposed to start a new PG course in Production Management which will cater to the current industrial need.


  • To produce engineers and researchers with excellent technical knowledge, research acumen, leadership skills and ethical responsibility.


  • To educate B. Tech., M. Tech and Ph. D students with fundamental knowledge in concerned subjects, and to update them with the state-of-the-art in the field.
  • To develop and maintain laboratories which cater to the needs of the students
  • Quest for inter-disciplinary research.
  • To promote academia-industry collaboration.

Objectives of the Department of Production and Industrial Engineering:

  • To provide the basic infrastructure to cater the demands for the basic fundamental of the subject covered for the course- Production & Industrial Engineering and to provide a sound foundation in engineering and technology.
  • To facilitate the students with better equipped high-end lab in collaboration with industry in order to make student a world class professional.
  • To develop the curriculum beyond the regular hour to impart practical real life training to the students and teachers. To arrange conferences, seminars, symposium, expert guest lecture etc on regular basis to expose students and teachers in the current trend.
  • To promote student awareness of the lifelong learning and to introduce them to professional ethics and code of professional practice.

Strengths of the Department:

  • The students are trained through the programme and will be well equipped with quantitative techniques of management decisions coupled with the knowledge of recent & newly developed technology, computer applications, so that they will be capable for significant contribution to industries, business and Govt. organization at all levels of decision making.

Program Outcomes:

Engineering graduates will be able to :

  • Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex problems in production and industrial engineering.
  • Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and production and industrial engineering.
  • Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex production and industrial engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional production and industrial engineering practice.
  • Environment and sustainability:Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional production and industrial engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  • Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  • Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  • Communication: Communicate effectively on complex production and industrial engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the production and industrial engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
