The discipline of Electrical Engineering has a rich history of almost two centuries, beginning with the study of traditional areas of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism, and evolving over the decades to encompass communications, power engineering, digital systems, instrumentation, signal processing, control systems, and, more recently, nano-tech, robotics and artificial intelligence.
At the Department of Mechanical Engineering, 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. These products can be basic, such as pulleys and gears; conventional, such as engines and power-producing systems; or advanced, such as control and automation systems for vehicles and machinery.
Computer & Software Engineering is the practice of putting software and hardware to practical use. If you are interested in designing and fabricating of microprocessor based systems/controllers/circuits and developing result-oriented high quality software that work for the benefit of civil & defense establishments or people, then you should surely consider joining Department of Computer Engineering, College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering – the biggest constituent College of NUST.
Mechatronics refers to a flexible, multi-technological approach for integration of mechanical engineering, computer engineering, electronics and information sciences. Mechatronics is essential in the design of intelligent products. It allows engineers to transform their virtual concepts into real life applications.
Engineering graduates of any discipline have to be adequately prepared to shoulder the responsibilities of technical leadership positions in today’s technology driven organizations. The engineers, so prepared, are the ultimate candidates for the positions of Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Operating Officers (COOs), Chief Technical Officers (CTOs), and other Technical Management positions in technically oriented industrial and service organizations.
Basic Sciences and Humanities (BS&H) department aims at providing a comprehensive knowledge of basic scientific principles, mathematical tools and developing the personalities of their students in every sphere of life. The department was established in November, 1993. The courses offered by the department are on Mathematics, Applied Physics, Chemistry, English, Pakistan Studies and Religious Studies; and cover about 30% of the Engineering Curriculum. To inculcate quality education highly qualified permanent faculty is employed. There are 21 faculty members in the department out of which 10 hold PhD degrees.
