Indian Society of Mechanical Engineers (ISME)

Indian Society of Mechanical Engineers | IIT Delhi

  Introduction to ISME

ISME was setup on 26th February 1976 with registration No. 7980 under the government of NCT of Delhi, India. The society aims at providing a common forum for exchanging the ideas, developments, and setting up new directions in the broad field of Mechanical Engineering. For achieving the aims since the inception of the ISME, the society has been holding bi-annual ISME conferences on Mechanical Engineering which have been quite popular amongst the research fraternity of academia and industries. The ISME has been one of the most active technical organizations of the country, which has been publishing three journals, holding workshops and various courses at regular interval of time.

ISME Journal

The existing three ISME journals have been given three new names for incorporating the developments in the fields of mechanical engineering. These journals will be published as e-journals in online mode. The journal names and their chief editors are provided below for information:
  • ISME Journal of Mechanics and Design (Chief editor: Prof. J. K. Dutt, Dept. of Mech. Engg., IIT Delhi)
