Getting to ME Department

Mechanical Engineering Department is a part of IIT Bombay which is located at Powai, which is a Eastern Suburb in the north-eastern part of Mumbai. Mumbai is a long narrow island, thrusting southwards into the Arabian Sea. It can be broadly divided into four zones. South Bombay (Colaba, CST,Fort, Chruchgate, Nariman Point), Central Bombay (Dadar, Bombay Central, Worli), the Western Suburbs (Bandra, Juhu, Andheri, Borivali), and the Eastern Suburbs(Kurla, Chembur, Ghatkopar, Mulund, Kanjur Marg, Vikhroli). There is also New Bombay (Vashi, Turbhe) across the Thane Creek on the mainland.

Public Transport

Mumbai has one of the most efficient and reliable public transport networks. One can travel by autorickshaws or taxis to reach IIT from the nearest stations (autorickshaws, however do not go further south than Sion and Bandra). For longer distance, you can use either the BEST Bus Network or the Mumbai Local train System.
