The faculty of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering is one of the pioneers of Engineering program at Bahir Dar Technology Institute which started its journey with technical and technological trainings since the establishment of poly technique Collage in 1963. One of the main objective is to prepare knowledgeable, skilled and matured in engineering and technology through undergraduate and graduate studies;to produce problem-solving research outputs by promoting and enhancing researches focusing on knowledge and technology transfer consistent with the country’s priority needs; to strengthen and increase technological based services and supports that respond to the developmental needs of the nation through consultancy and community services; to enhance wealth creation through technological innovation and entrepreneurship.

Currently, the faculty is organized with seven chair (department) systems. The faculty is running 4 undergraduate, 8 master, and 5 Ph.D. programs. It has 95 active academic staff (2 full professors, 4 associate professors, 9 assistant professors, and 78 lecturers), and 27 technical assistants staff, and 35, on MSc study leave, 25 on Ph.D. Study leave staff. The faculty is equipped with 29 laboratories and machine shops.

Student Admission 
Admissions and placements to all regular undergraduate programs are processed through the ministry until such time as the university will be allowed to enroll its students. It may also be granted to students completing their secondary education in foreign countries on the basis of equivalent academic achievements that shall be determined by the ministry. Admissions to all undergraduate continuing and distance education programs is processed through the various faculties, in consultation with the institute registrar, by considering criteria to be developed by the Academic Standards and Review Committee. The criteria shall be developed based on the framework from ministry and/or HERQA.
