Mechanical Engineering

Welcome to the Department!

Equipped with state-of-the-art labs and infrastructural facilities, the Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a richly integrated curriculum combining classroom learning with engineering practices. Mechanical engineering is a very diverse profession involving the design of machines, devices, various products, controls systems, generation, conversion, transmission, and utilization of mechanical and thermal power. Mechanical engineers' assignments often include analysis and synthesis of mechanical, thermal, and fluid systems. Manufacturing systems, robotics, and electromechanical devices also fall in the purview of mechanical engineering. Graduates of this field are among the most sought after and enjoy professional engagement in industry, government organizations, consulting, and research organizations.

At Wah engineering, college students participate in research projects through individual directed studies with faculty supervision. The program culminates with a capstone senior design course sequence highlighted by real-life projects sponsored by the various industries. Students benefit from the challenges and gratification that come through direct interaction with practicing engineers. Participation in student chapters of professional societies provides leadership opportunities, congenial activities, and learning experiences outside the classrooms.

Wah Engineering College offers undergraduate and post-graduate programs in mechanical engineering leading to bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in this discipline. Blend of highly qualified faculty and state of the art well-equipped laboratories and unlimited access to the industrial infrastructure of Pakistan Ordinance Factories provides a unique environment for research and development. The department emphasizes on the correlation of theory to real-life engineering problems and produces human resource that is relevant to industries and productive immediately after graduation. Our postgraduate programs cater to the specific needs of strategic organizations. It is a modular program that is flexible enough to accommodate the specific needs of professional organizations. A strong interface between academia and industry makes the program truly market-oriented.

Career Prospects

Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering. It is also referred to as the 'mother' branch of engineering. Another appealing feature of Mechanical Engineering is that the application base of this field of study is extremely broad and diverse. Almost all inventions during the ancient period and a vast majority in the modern era are direct contributions of one or the other application of mechanics. Mechanical Engineering graduates have excellent employment prospects. They are employed by various national and multinational companies not only in Pakistan but their demand is also huge abroad.
