Department of Mechanical Engineering  
  Prof. Dr. Muhammad Ramzan Luhur



To produce professional engineers in mechanical engineering for sustainable socioeconomic development of the society.


The mission of Mechanical Engineering Department is to impart updated knowledge and expertise in the field of design, manufacturing, production, fabrication, installation and maintenance to enable our graduating students to meet the needs/ challenges of industry, academia and society.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

PEO 1: To produce the professional engineers capable to meet the requirements of market for socio-economic development of country.

PEO 2: To produce the Mechanical Engineers with expertise in design, manufacturing, production control and energy to acquire problem-solving abilities.

PEO 3: To produce the Mechanical Engineers with ethical values and effective communication skills to face the challenges of industry and capable to work as an individual and in team.


Mechanical Engineering involves the application of physics for the analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems and components. It requires basic understanding of several fields like mechanics, thermodynamics and energy. Mechanical engineers are capable to apply engineer concepts for the efficient, economic and environment friendly design and analysis of automobiles, aircraft, heating & cooling systems, buildings and bridges, industrial equipment and machinery.

The department was established in year, 1974, since than about 2200 students have graduated and are working major national and international organizations ranging from Pakistan Steel, PIA, Railways, WAPDA, PMTF, Heavy Mechanical Complex, OGDCL, SSGC, OMV, ENGRO, NRL and several other organizations. A good number of our graduates are also working in the Gulf countries.

The department offers bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering after successful completion of fouryears (8 terms) undergraduate course. The syllabus contains a good number of practical oriented subjects which provide a broad spectrum of technical knowledge to the students by laboratory experiments and workshop practice in a learning conducive environment. Due to advancement in robotic and automation in modern industries, department has taken full account of industrial electronics, and mechatronics courses in the syllabus. The department also offers various short course not only on the mechanical engineering software, i.e. AutoCAD, Pro-E, CNC, CAD/CAM and PLC, but also on the professional and personal career development as well.

The distinguished feature of the department is the existence of 10 highly established laboratories, which are fully equipped with the latest equipments. The Jet Engine Test Bench, Supersonic Wind Tunnel, Computer Controlled Programmable CNC Lathe and Milling Machines, Advanced Welding Process, TIG, MIG & SPOT and a workshop are fully established for conducting practical and research.

The Mechanical Engineering Workshop is not only used for conducting the experiments but also used for production of various articles, laboratory furniture for the University at relatively very low cost than the market. In addition to the bachelor's degree, the department also offers Master's Programme (Course + Research) in Manufacturing Engineering and Industrial Engineering & Management disciplines.

It is a 32 Credit Hours programme, (24 C.H. for Course Work + 8 C.H. for Research Work). The active research areas are Robotics, Advanced Manufacturing Systems, FEA, Materials development and Processing, Quality Management and Energy & Environment Sector. The faculty members have received their specialized training and higher degrees from developed countries including UK, Japan, Ireland, Thailand, Romania, Sweden and China.
