Locationedit

Traditionally a center for firearms manufacturing, Jamalpur was selected by the East Indian Railway for one of its earliest workshops and was established on 8 February 18621 Located in the foothills of the Rajmahal range a part of Chhota Nagpur Plateau, the site was high enough to survive any threat of floods from the Ganges, and the hills secured it against any organized attack from an enemy The site had a tomb of Baba Jamal Saheb after whom the place was named

Facilitiesedit

Built in the first decade of the 20th century, the original two-story building of IRIMEE was destroyed in a major earthquake in 1921, but it was redesigned and reconstructed in 1924 The building encloses several beautiful, landscaped gardens laid out in quadrangles There are eight classrooms equipped with computers connected to the internet, laboratories and model rooms for theoretical and practical training, and two computer labs with high-speed internet connectivity A new CAD/CAM laboratory is being established There is also a 500-seat auditorium for seminars and workshops, as well as a conference hall

Historyedit

IRIMEE had humble beginnings when it started in 1888 as a technical school attached to the Railway Locomotive Workshop Jamalpur of the East Indian Railway In 1905, this technical school started an Apprentice Mechanics Scheme for Anglo-Indians At the end of a five-year apprenticeship, the Apprentice Mechanics were appointed as Assistant Foremen or Assistant Superintendents on the East India Railway In 1911, the scheme was extended to include other Indians

The program gained national prominence in February 1927 when it started training Special Class Railway Apprentice Mechanical and Electrical Engineers In 1974, the school was made a Centralised Training Institute CTI and renamed the Indian Railways Institute of Mechanical & Electrical Engineering It was put under the direct control of the Railway Board It is the oldest of the CTIs

In 1988, the training of Indian Railway Service of Mechanical Engineers IRSME Probationers was centralised and put under the control of the Director of the IRIMEE, but with headquarters in Kharagpur, where there was an Officer on Special Duty OSD who coordinated the training with the Director In 1997, the headquarters of the IRSME probationers was shifted to Jamalpur
