Introduction

The department of Mechanical engineering was established in 2012. Currently it has an enrolment of about 178 students at undergraduate level. So far by year 2018, around 130 students have graduated from the department and have successfully received registration numbers from Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC). The department is now shifted towards OBE system as per PEC requirement. The department is comprises of foreign qualified Ph.D. and M.Sc. faculty members to provide fine level of teaching to the students and to enhance the research projects as well.

The department is offering 4 years B.Sc. Mechanical Engineering Program. According to PEC & HEC guidelines, the total credit hours for this program are 136. The credit hours are divided in theoretical materials, practical laboratories and engineering training/projects in well-established engineering facilities.

To complete the practical part of mechanical engineering study, the department provides scientific laboratories with upgraded machinery and software to elevate and improve the practical training of the students in his/her all studying levels. The good economy of country relies largely on total productivity which is highly dependent on mechanical engineers. The department is well equipped with laboratories like Fluid engineering, Dynamics of machinery, Machine design, Mechanics of materials and Workshops to meet the demand of well trained and professionally sound mechanical engineers.

Department’s mission

To produce engineers with broad & in-depth knowledge, creativity, who are capable of solving mechanical engineering problems, following professional ethics.

Department’s PEOs

The department was established with the following program educational objectives (PEOs).

  1. Apply the knowledge to solve analytical and practical engineering problems.
  2. Work for the continuous socio-technical development of the society.
  3. Exhibit strong communication, and managerial skills, as team leaders as well as team members.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)
