Society of Mechanical Engineering Students (SOMES)

IOE, Pulchowk Campus


The Society of Mechanical Engineering Students (SOMES) is the official students’ body of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Pulchowk Campus. Established in 2007 AD, SOMES has been undertaking the responsibility of bringing out the innovator, the manager, the teacher and the craftsman inside every student by organising and involving the students in various events, trainings, workshops and seminars as well as being the bridge between students, the administration and our alumni.

On Going Event



SOMES Hub is a project that is initiated for providing reading resources to mechanical students under IOE. We have made it easier for you by creating a SOMES hub which consist of all the requirement.


The event is the major attraction of MechTRIX Expo and has been held annually. The event focuses on showcasing various projects and demonstrations made by BE level students 

Article Hub

Here is the list of Article and other materials collected by the student. Extra resources that may be helpful to friends or juniors. You can contact SOMES Committee Members to supply those resources.

Pulchowk Campus

A Institute of Engineering, Pulchowk Campus is the most prestigious institution for higher education in the country. Established in 1972 AD at the heart of the city, Pulchowk Lalitpur, the campus today is the epitome for engineering education in the country. With a wide range of faculties and streams to garnish and produce the best talents in engineering,it is the landmark in excellence and quality education.

MechTRIX 2020

MechTRIX, the national mechanical engineering exhibition has been taking the steps towards the growth of students, in every way possible. Every year, we take a new concept, sow it among the students and faculties, nurture it and share it with the world. As we embarked upon the journey this year, it is time to set a path for all of us to follow.


I feel great pride in witnessing the transition of SOMES from mobilizing students from the department itself in its earlier days to bringing together students and profes-sionals of related engineering fields from across the country. The prestigious student body of the Department of Mechanical engineering conducts a range of activities to better the sharing and mobilization of knowledge and information; and its flagship event- MechTRIX has now finally arrived.

MechTRIX, the national mechanical exhibition, is primarily a platform for students from high school to undergraduate level to showcase their creativity in STEM. Moreover, in its tenth iteration, MechTRIX X is providing an insight into the market outside academia. This time around, the spotlight will not only be on the students but also on entrepreneurs striving to make a mark.

I praise the students for the hard work they have put in for months to bring these events to life. Our previous endeavors have been graced by notable personalities in the field as well as the general public; numbering in the thousands. I hope with all my heart that all the individuals involved in this new venture receive similar support throughout. I would also like to encourage all the participants to use their new found experience to forge new paths in the future ahead. I wish them success in all their endeavors and wish them luck.
