The Department of Mechanical Engineering, NIT Patna has the great pleasure to welcome scientists and engineers from all over the world to attend International conference on Progressive Research in Industrial & Mechanical Engineering (PRIME-2021) to be held on 05-07 August, 2021.
The main objective of this international conference is to present the current research progresses in the area of Thermal & Fluids, Design, Mechatronics, Control and Robotics, Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering, Energy and Process Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Structural Engineering, Automobile Engineering, and other inter-disciplinary and emerging areas. The conference seeks to provide a platform for a broad blend of high-quality research articles in order to promote rapid communication and exchange between scientists, researchers, academicians, industrialists, engineers, and students. This conference will provide an opportunity to national and international experts and industry leaders to share their experiences and success stories. The delegates will be benefited with the scientific and technological issues addressed by recognized global experts who are up to date with the latest developments in their area and provide information future research areas. PRIME-2021 will allow interactive panel discussions and sessions by renowned keynote speakers, plenary speeches, short lectures, oral paper and poster presentations.
Participants can present their latest research works through oral presentation or poster presentation. Best paper presentation and best poster presentation awards will be awarded. The conference provides platform to publish original research articles, review articles and feature articles. All the accepted papers will be published with SCOPUS indexing. The tentative publishers may be from: Springer, American Scientific Publisher, Elsevier Procedia, ISME, IOP Science, IEEE.


National Institute of Technology Patna is the 18th National Institute of Technology created by the Ministry of H.R.D. Government of India after rechristening the erstwhile Bihar College of Engineering Patna on 28. 01. 2004. NIT Patna marked its humble beginning in 1886 with the establishment of pleaders survey training school which was subsequently promoted of Bihar College of Engineering Patna in 1924. This made this institute the 6th Oldest Engineering Institute of India. The graduate level curriculum was later elevated to the post graduate level in 1978. The institute is situated on the south bank of holy river Ganges behind Gandhi Ghat, one of the most important and reverential places of Patna. The Gandhi Ghat is associated with the immersion of ashes of father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi in the river Ganges. The campus has a picturesque river view with historic building presenting a spectacle of architectural delight and natural beauty.
National Institute of Technology Patna has been declared as an Institute of National Importance and has been granted a fully Autonomous Status by MHRD, Government of India. The Institute has also been declared as a Centre of Excellence of impart high level education training, research and development in science, engineering technology and humanities. It is imparting high quality education & values at UG (B. Tech), PG (M. Tech) & Ph.D. programmes through its experienced faculty well versed in their respective field of engineering an technology with well-equipped laboratories.
