Faculty of Engineering & Technology
The faculty of Engineering & Technology is constituted by three departments (i.e. Department of Mechanical Engineering (DME), Department of Electrical Engineering (DEE) and Department of Computer Science & Engineering (DCS&E)). All three departments are offering bachelor, master and doctorial academic programs in their respective areas of Engineering and Technology. All the BS Engineering programs are accredited on OBE system from Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) while the BS Computer Science program is accredited as the highest category ‘W’ by National Computing Education Accreditation Council (NCEAC). Furthermore, all the programs offered in faculty of E&T strictly adhere to the guidelines of Higher Education Commission, Pakistan.
We follow Semester System of education and our teaching, learning and evaluation processes are similar to those practiced in reputed universities of the U.S.A. The Engineering Faculty consists of highly qualified and experienced academicians and researchers holding Ph.D and MS level qualifications from institutions of universal repute. Besides keeping abreast of the latest developments in the knowledge of their respective domains, the faculty members actively participate in the R&D activities. This stimulates new ideas and innovative thinking to guide our students in their research phase of studies. The minimum qualification for teaching undergraduate classes is an MS / M.Phil degree in the relevant field. Similarly, all Master level courses are taught by Ph.D qualified faculty only.
The class-room teaching, in HITEC University, is complemented with indepth hands-on experimentation in spacious, well furnished, and very well-equipped laboratories. In this context, we do claim a unique position amongst other competing institutions, as each of our EE and ME Departments hosts 12-dedicated laboratories. The laboratories of CS&E Department are also equipped with state of the art machines and other allied facilities. We are now focusing on enhancing our research potential for postgraduate programs.
Extensive details about curricula, faculty, laboratories and research opportunities can be gleaned from the relevant description of the concerned Department from the prospectus.
A special point to note is that HITEC University has now transformed into an “OUTCOME BASED EDUCATION” center and has aligned its engineering programs with the requirements of “WASHINGTON ACCORD”. Consequently, our engineering degrees would be reckoned as substantially equivalent to the degrees awarded in the U.S.A., Canada, Australia, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong.
The Dean E&T is committed to facilitate faculty members for acquiring funding from National and International agencies, conducting international conferences, publication in high impact factor journals. Commercializing the research in collaboration with industry and pragmatic research in the context of Pakistan’s socio-economic needs under the umbrella of ORIC is also accorded top priority.
HITEC University is very fortunate to have a complete heavy industrial setup in the form of Heavy Industries Taxila (HIT) at walking distance. This has enabled students to undertake industrial level projects involving tool design, engine testing, explicit dynamic analysis, fatigue analysis and material selection. More often than not the cost is borne by the sponsoring industry which reduces the financial burden on the students.
So, if you aspire to be a proficient Electrical, Mechanical, Computer Engineer or an accomplished Computer Scientist, we are here to groom and equip you with requisite knowledge, skills and the attitude for your acceptance in the national and international job markets.
