Department of Mechanical Engineering

Quaid-e-Awam University of Engineering, Science and Technology Larkana

1.      MECHANICAL ENGINEERING  PROGRAM

Mechanical Engineering involves the application of physics for the analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems and components. It requires basic understanding of several fields like mechanics, thermodynamics, and energy. Mechanical engineers are capable to apply engineering concepts for the efficient, economic and environment friendly design and analysis of automobiles, aircraft, heating & cooling systems, buildings and bridges, industrial equipment and machinery.

The syllabus contains a good number of practical oriented subjects which provide a broad spectrum of technical knowledge to the students by laboratory experiments and workshop practice in a learning conducive environment. Due to advancement in robotics and automation in modern industries, department has taken full account of industrial electronics, and mechatronics courses in thesyllabus. In addition, a six-credit hour project is also carried out by the students in final year.

The department also offers various short courses not only on the mechanical engineering softwarebut also on the professional and personal career development as well. The distinguished feature of the department is the existence of seven highly established laboratories and a workshop. The Mechanical Engineering Workshop is not only used for conducting the experiments but also used for production of various articles, laboratory furniture for the University at relatively very low cost than the market.
