Mechanical engineering is the study of physical systems, from the microscopic to the macroscopic, for the purpose of developing and advancing technologies to benefit humans in areas relating to production processes, energy, the environment, lifestyles, life, living organisms, and medicine. The disciplines that serve as its foundation include the mechanics of materials, heat and fluids, as well as solid-state physics, mechanical dynamics, vibration engineering, and control engineering. Furthermore, this foundation requires the application of engineering concepts relating to the design, manufacture, evaluation, diagnosis and control of mechanical systems and their component elements.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering pursues research and education, for the purpose of promoting a harmonious coexistence between humans and nature.
The major employers of Mechanical Engineering graduates in our country are: WAPDA, PTCL, PWD, Pakistan Navy, PIA, Air Force, Education, Atomic Energy Commission, AWC, Process Industries, NDC and various other organizations.
