From the Director’s Desk


At the outset, I take this opportunity of welcoming all online visitors to the newly designed website of CSIR‐Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute.

As the only national laboratory dedicated to mechanical engineering, the core mission of the CSIR‐CMERI is to conduct research and develop cost effective and value added technologies in mechanical engineering and allied domains. Yet another element of CSIR‐ CMERI’s mission is to contribute significantly to national skill development initiatives for sustainable empowerment. CSIR‐CMERI envisages emerging as a global R&D institute having confidence of industries and visibility to society in mechanical engineering sciences and technologies.

The ambit of activities of CSIR‐CMERI extends over Advanced Design and Manufacturing; Cybernetics, Electronics & Embedded Systems, Drives & Control; Foundry and Metallurgy; Materials, Processes, Chemistry & Biomimetics; Microsystem Technology; Precision Engineering & Metrology; Precision Farm Machinery; Process Engineering; Surface Engineering & Tribology; Surface Robotics & Mechatronics System Design, Dynamics and Kinematics, Simulation & Analysis, Immersive Visualization; Thermal Engineering and Underwater Robotics.

In the existing national scenario bridging science technology and research, CSIR‐CMERI is positioning itself to

  • Develop new technologies and techniques for commercialization
  • Engage in top‐class R&D built around its critical knowledge and core competencies
  • Develop affordable technologies for offering affordable engineering solutions for societal needs
  • Undertake extra mural research with academic partners like IITs, IISc, NITs, etc.
  • Extend its facilities and resources for alignment with national missions for Skill Development, Make in India, Swachch Bharat, Innovate in India, etc.

I hope our new website would be found informative, interesting and useful. I also welcome all to continue their association through the utilization of the R&D and other technical services the Institute has on offer, collaborative ventures and academic exchanges.
