These days we may hear about various disciplines and specializations in engineering, but it is a fact that Mechanical Engineering is the mother of all engineering. An undergraduate engineering program in Mechanical Engineering enables a student to design, manufacture, install and operate various plants and components of machines.
The First batch of Department of Mechanical Engineering was inducted in 2010 and till 2018 eight batches were inducted in the Department. Our graduates are serving in industry and academia in Pakistan and abroad. They proved themselves to the lifelong learning, contributing to innovation in business and higher education.
The Department boasts a team of highly qualified, experienced in industry and education faculty. College encourages young faculty to improve qualification for career development. Some of the graduates of Mechanical engineering department have completed M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from prominent UETs of Pakistan and they are now serving as faculty members. Some of them are already pursuing research for PhD degree in advanced countries like China and Korea. A trend is setting that Graduates of Mechanical Department with a degree of UET Lahore are getting admission in post-graduate degree courses of National and Foreign Universities.
We inculcate in the undergraduate students to go for independent research at the time of performing their Final year Projects (FYP). They succeeded in creation of innovative projects to solve real life problems of national economy. One of the students got patented his FYP with the Pakistan Patent Office as innovation in alternative energy. In 2018, a group of Mechanical Department students installed the Student Branch of ASHRAE Central Pakistan Chapter of the American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air-conditioning Engineers. This enabled them to participate in the 15th and 16th International Conference and Expo of Pakistan HVACR Society held in Islamabad and Karachi in 2018 and 2019 respectively. Such activities provide students a chance to rub their shoulders with the most experienced industry professionals and icons.
