Undergraduate Programme

Degree Courses in the following disciplines are offered at Quaid-e-Awam University at present.       

From the academic session 2016-17 (Batch-17), the system of education switched from term system to semester system under the Outcome Based Education (OBE) model as per the requirements of PEC & HEC for the award of a four-year bachelor´s degree. An academic year is divided into two semesters and the university offers eight semesters of course work to obtain bachelor´s degrees in the mentioned engineering and sciences programs

Students of all disciplines are also required to study some basic subjects in social studies, and mathematics, as well as those about other branches of Engineering, which are generally taught by the concerned departments

At the end of the fourth year, after satisfactory completion of the courses in all respects and having passed all the examinations held by the University, the degree of Bachelor is awarded. The postgraduate programs are also offered in the fields of Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Energy system, Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Information Technology and Mathematics leading to the award of ME/MS/M. Phil and PhD degrees. ME/MS are four semesters (02 years) evening programs. Whereas, M.Phil and PhD are full-time programs

Outcome-Based Education (OBE) System

As per the PEC guidelines, all the engineering programs at QUEST Nawabshah and QUCEST Larkano follow the OBE system, which emphasizes measured outcomes. Several stakeholders such as faculty, students, employers, industrial advisory board, alumni, and parents are involved in the assessment of program effectiveness. During four years of the program, Washington Accord Graduate Attributes / Program Learning Outcomes (WAs/PLOs) and Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are imparted to the students and then attainment is assessed and analyzed through both direct and indirect assessments.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

PLOs describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills and attitude that the students acquire while progressing through the program. All the engineering programs of the university follow the below given PLOsthat all engineering graduates are expected to have by the time of graduation.

Engineering Knowledge:

An ability to apply knowledge of Mathematics, Science, Engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

Problem Analysis:

An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Engineering sciences.

Design/Development of Solutions:

An ability to devise solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal and environmental considerations.


An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature feedback, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of the information to derive valid conclusions.

Modern Tool Usage:

An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

The Engineer and Society:

An ability to apply reason informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems. Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge and need for sustainable development.


Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.

Individual and Teamwork:

An ability to work effectively as an individual or a team in multifaceted or multidisciplinary settings.


An ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

Project Management:

An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one´s work as a member or leader in a team to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.

Lifelong Learning:

An ability to recognize the importance of and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The PEOs are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to achieve a few years after graduation. The PEOs for each of the engineering programs of the university, prepared by the departmental OBE committee, recommended by the concerned Board of Studies and Board of Faculty, and finally approved by the University Academic Council are given under the description of each of the departments/programs. Every graduate engineer should acquire these PEOs after 4 - 5 years of graduation.
