Department of Mechanical Engineering
It is a universally acknowledged fact that Mechanical Engineering is the mother of all engineering disciplines. The development on this planet owes a lot to Mechanical Engineering, which deals with designing, manufacturing, installation and operation of mechanical devices, machinery and systems. As one of the broadest and most vital branches of engineering disciplines, it mixes the core traditional engineering principles with emerging technologies to create innovative solutions of design problems.
Ever since its inception in 2007, the Department of Mechanical Engineering has been imparting quality education to students, with a view to produce engineers, who can contribute positively both at national and international levels. Our graduates are very well placed in a variety of industries like automobile, power sector, transportation, consumer products, sports goods and strategic organizations. Owing to the broad-based curriculum, a degree in Mechanical Engineering enables our graduate to seek and secure job almost anywhere in the country or abroad.
The Department has a team of highly qualified, motivated and experienced faculty, which remains involved in multifarious teaching and research activities. Various on job trainings and professional development courses keep the faculty abreast of the latest trends in teaching and research around the world.
The Department offers BS, MS and PhD programs in Mechanical Engineering. The BS Engineering Program is duly accredited by the PEC. Similarly, the curricula of our BS, MS and PhD programs are very well designed according to the recommendations and guidelines of HEC and PEC. Students are involved in research projects in collaboration with various industries including Heavy Industries Taxila (HIT). The patronage of experienced supervisors ensures that students learn to execute their projects with a sense of responsibility
The undergraduate program equips students with a solid foundation in basic scientific and mathematical knowledge, whereas the graduate program offers advanced knowledge in various specializations. The Department is actively involved in research in fields like thermo fluids, structures and materials, production and manufacturing and renewable energy resources. The Department of Mechanical Engineering was the first to follow and be part of the Washington Accord, being an emerging and standardized concept in teaching and learning.
Education is more than just the human interaction with books and machines. We believe that it is the discovery of the self and soul and the seeking of truth as our motto says, “In Truth I Triumph”. The Department lays an equitable emphasis upon all those pursuits, in which students find opportunities of discovering themselves and polishing their latent skills and abilities. It results in cultivating positive attitudes, values and soft skills, which prepares them for competitive industrial environment as responsible and positive citizens.
