Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering, which is widely used in all parts of the world today, and plays a significant role in the development and advancement of knowledge and technology. The field of mechanical engineering activity is so extensive that not only cannot be found an industry that is not needed, but an important part of the development of all industries is due to the advances made in mechanical engineering.
On the other hand, with the rapid growth of science coupled with the amazing development of industry and technology in the world, the boundaries between engineering disciplines are diminishing and the areas of joint activity are rapidly expanding. On the one hand, this has led to many courses and trends in each of the engineering disciplines in other engineering fields, and on the other hand, it has created specialized fields called "interdisciplinary”.
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is one of the first faculties established at Urmia University of Technology, which was established in 2006 in the field of solid-state mechanical engineering in the field of mechanical engineering. The faculty took the first students in 2008 in fluids, and in the 2011 took mechanical engineering. Also, in the year 2012 in the aerospace field, students were admitted to undergraduate studies.

Bachelor of Engineering in Aerospace
All-round development of the country and its sustainable development will not be possible without taking steps in the field of superior technologies such as aerospace, information technology, biotechnology and .... In this way, aerospace technology has two unique indicators, on the one hand, this technology can be the engine of other technologies and promote the comprehensive upgrade in many technologies, and on the other hand, its acquisition of modern technology and aerospace can be the manifestation of the authority of countries.
Aerospace engineering is a branch of engineering that designs airplanes, spacecraft, satellites and related issues, as well as designing high-tech systems such as low-cost vehicles and oil and gas equipment and production systems.
Aerospace Engineering is one of the most advanced engineering and engineering disciplines in the field of science and technology. The main topic of this field is to perform calculations for the analysis and design of moving objects in the air and space such as high-performance aircraft, helicopter, missile, spacecraft, etc. The aerospace engineering has many common lessons with mechanical engineering field, such as solid mechanics and fluid mechanics, and was formerly known as a mechanical engineering field. The foundation of these lessons is based on mathematics. However, there are many experimental sections in this field. This discipline includes five major trends: flight and control dynamics, aerodynamics, propulsion, aerospace structures, and space.
