University rank #400 (QS) Islamabad, Pakistan
At the Mechanical Engineering program of the National University of Sciences and Technology, we are conscious of the fact that Mechanical Engineering, as a discipline, is the traditional bed-rock of engineering. It is thus all-encompassing, based on well-established laws of nature which are used through ingenuity to design and operate functional products.

In spite of being traditional, mechanical engineering has undergone quantum leaps in modernization due to rapid advances in electronics and computer technologies. Engineering design, for example, utilizes high-speed computing processes in design and manufacturing, as indeed does computer simulation of fluid flows for the design of super-sonic systems. The premium on mechanical engineering graduates has thus expanded from traditional areas to hi-tech areas. They must thus integrate technologies rather than remain isolated. This requires a multi-disciplinary outlook, which we have been careful to incorporate into our syllabus while maintaining the conventional structure.

The curriculum of the Mechanical Engineering program of the National University of Sciences and Technology is thus based on core areas, which include Thermofluids and Thermal sciences, Engineering Design and Analysis, Dynamics and Controls, CAD/CAM, and Manufacturing/Production Engineering and Management.

These are based on core areas of “Basic Sciences” such as Engineering Mathematics and Physics. Incorporating courses in Computer Simulation, Computer Aided Engineering, Production Tooling and Automation, Optimization, and Modeling and Simulation achieve modernization of the syllabus.

Classroom teaching is fortified by experiments conducted in well-equipped labs with state-of-the-art machinery.

Currently, the Mechanical Engineering Laboratories are in the areas of Thermo- fluids, Mechanics of Materials, Controls, Manufacturing, Mechanical Vibration and Automobile Technology. Students can thus typically carry out experiments to study heat transfer, fluid flow, flow in convergent-divergent nozzles, steam production and power generation in a power plant among other fundamental areas.

For computer programming, and the development of engineering software, or the use of educational codes, students have access to four computer labs of the College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. Which are equipped with high performance Sun workstations in addition to Pentium computers.

Projects carried out by graduating students indicate the level of interest generated in them as well as the multi-disciplinary involvement they have had to undergo. In the last semester.

Our graduates can expect to have a command on engineering principles as well as a sound capability in converting concepts to reality. They could find themselves in industry engaged with the maintenance and operation of plant equipment such as boilers, compressors, and turbines, with advanced engineering processes such as CAD/CAM/CAE, process simulation for plant modifications, R&D applications, engineering management, or a variety of similar areas.

The objective of our degree program is thus to produce quality professionals in mechanical engineering who can contribute valuably to the profession. The training our students thus get during their studies in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the E&ME College places them well to embark upon engineering careers in industry, R&D organizations, or government and defense establishments

The students in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at E&ME College are trained to perform well in Industries, R&D Organizations, Government or Defense Establishments during their Engineering career.
