The Corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers maintains the mechanical and electrical/electronic equipment held by the Pakistan Army. In order to meet the training requirements of the Corps, Electrical and Mechanical Engineers School was established at Quetta on 1st April 1957. The facilities in the school were constantly updated to keep pace with the quality and quantity of equipment being inducted in the Army. By 1969, the School had grown sufficiently in stature and expertise to be elevated to the status of College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. Having established its credibility as a premier equipment-training institute, it started its own BSc Engineering Program in 1981, which was subsequently shifted to Naval Engineering College, Karachi. In April 1984, having stayed for 26 years at Quetta, the College moved to its present premises. The same year the College revitalized its BSc Engineering Program in affiliation with the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. The program was successful and its quality can be gauged from the fact that College graduates won laurels for the institution by winning Rhodes, Commonwealth and S&T Scholarships besides proving their mettle in defence and civil industry. This success prompted the start of MSc program in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering from August 1988 for officers of Corps of Signals and EME. MSc engineering program extended to Pakistan Air Force, Navy and Civil organizations in 1989. In 1990, entry to BSc engineering degree changed to Technical Cadets instead of newly commissioned officers.
