Home > Faculty Of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers confront diverse and challenging engineering problems which requires integration of science, engineering and socio-economic knowledge. They are trained to solve real-world engineering problems arising in energy production, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and manufacturing. They design complex machines, manufacturing processes and translate them into real products that addresses societal issues. However, with recent advances, mechanical systems are increasingly integrated with electronics, sensors, actuators, micro-controllers and computers. Mechanical engineering education thus needs to gear up to keep up with the fast-changing technology development.

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FME) has a modern curriculum designed by experts and practitioner of engineering profession. Drawing on from disciplines such as mechanics and materials, thermal and fluid sciences, design and manufacturing, vibration and control systems, the curriculum also reflects the latest advances in finite element methods, computational fluid dynamics, computer-aided design and additive manufacturing. To cope with modern electro-mechanical systems courses and labs on robotics, instrumentation, electrical circuits and devices, electrical machines and drives, embedded systems, micro-controllers and mechatronics are also tightly integrated in the curriculum. The courses are delivered by research active faculty members who infuses life into classroom through real-world examples and stimulating complex engineering problems. Covering a gamut of applications ranging from tiny printed electronics, micro-fluidics, composite materials, advanced manufacturing, computer-controlled machines, natural fluid refrigeration, power plants, high speed rotating machines, frictionless bearings to industrial robots and unmanned air, underwater and ground vehicles. The curriculum is tightly knitted with modern well-equipped labs that takes students beyond the realm of theory and displays marvels of mechanical engineering in action. Inspiring enthusiastic young enquiring minds to unravel the mysteries, discover, explore and grow.

FME is ISO 9001:2015 certified. ISO re-accreditation is done in the year 2019-20.

Faculty Mission

The faculty is aimed at producing professionals with sound knowledge base, leadership quality and social rectitude. They are also capable to intelligently respond and adapt to technological advancements in the field of Mechanical Engineering.

Careers in Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering involves application of mechanics and thermal-fluid sciences to design, manufacture, operate, maintain, various processes and plants. Mechanical Engineers are the backbone of many industries and can have a career in a wide spectrum of fields including shipbuilding, aerospace, railroad works, automotive, turbomachinery, pharmaceutical, petroleum, chemical, process and energy industries, just to name a few. FME graduates are well sought after by R&D/defense organization, fertilizers and cement companies, power plants and petrochemical industries, automobile manufacturers as well as by various multi-national companies. Re-accreditation of BS program by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) under Level-II category i.e., Washington Accord (WA) accredited engineering degree, implies that the BS degree is recognized as equivalent to a degree from WA signatory countries. This provides an additional mobility to our graduates across the world as it makes easier engineers to gain professional registration in other countries.

Outcome Based Education (OBE)

FME has adopted student centric OBE system that leads to enhanced learning outcomes for students and relies heavily on continuous quality improvement. Moreover, curriculum is continuously revised keeping in view the country’s industrial needs as well as adopting best international practices. Our students are thus equipped with twelve key graduate attributes or Program Learning Outcomes. These attributes or learning outcomes groom students with sound intellectual, theoretical and practical experiences that qualify them to address a variety of societal needs ethically. Thus, enabling graduating students to step with confidence into industry, research organizations or in the domain of higher education. FME firmly believes the education we provide will enable our graduates to stand out from the crowd and has the potential to rise and shine.
