In connection with the demand of industrial enterprises for qualified personnel an Engineering Faculty of Belarusian Polytechnic Institute (the city of Minsk), was established in Gomel with an evening form of studying. First enrollment in the speciality “Engineering Technology, Metal Cutting Machine Tools and Cutters” took place in 1968.
In January, 1973 after reorganization of the Engineering Faculty of Belarusian Polytechnic Institute into the Gomel Branch of Belarusian Polytechnic Institute a Mechanical Engineering Faculty was established. R.I.Vecher became the first dean of the Faculty(1973-1977). Later V.G.Korotkevich (1977-1980), V.F.Anikin (1980-1981), A.P.Akulich (1981-1990), A.T.Bielskii (1990-2010) were the deans of the Faculty. At present G.V. Petrishin is at the head of the Faculty.
The Mechanical Engineering Faculty became the basis for establishing new Faculties – Technological Faculty and Automation and Control Faculty.
One of the first departments established at the Mechanical Engineering Faculty was Engineering Technology and Metal Cutting Machine Tools and Cutters Department which provided in 1973 the first graduation from the Evening Department of the Gomel Branch of Belarusian Polytechnic Institute (51 graduates).
The Faculty has 7 Departments, computer classes, research laboratories.
The Faculty provides students with training in the following specialities:
1. Engineering Technology.
2. Technological Equipment for Machine Building.
3. Hydro-Pneumatic Systems of Mobile and Technological Machines.
4. Development and Operation of Oil and Gas Fields.
5. Automation of Technological Processes and Productions.
Graduates of the Mechanical Engineering Faculty apply their knowledge at machine building enterprises, at special design offices and research institutes and also at home University.
From 2005 training international students from foreign countries has been started at the Faculty.
Over 6 000 specialists of high qualification and production managers have graduated from the Faculty during the whole period of the Faculty operation who work not only in many corners of our country but also far beyond its borders.
