INTRODUCTION OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT MUET, SZAB CAMPUS KHAIRPUR
Mechanical Engineering involves the application of principles of analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. It requires a solid understanding of key concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics and energy. Practitioners of mechanical engineering, known as mechanical engineers, use these principles and others in the design and analysis of automobiles, aircraft, heating & cooling systems, buildings and bridges, industrial equipment and machinery, and more.
The department of Mechanical Engineering offers the degree course titled “Bachelor of Engineering”. This is to ensure a minimum level of competence among graduating engineers and to inspire confidence in the engineering profession as a whole. Fundamental subjects of mechanical engineering typically include:
- Engineering Drawing and Graphics
- Engineering Statics
- Engineering Materials
- Mechanics of Machines
- Strength of Materials
- Instrumentation & control
- Heat and Mass Transfer
- Machine Design & CAD
- Applied Aerodynamics
- Fluid Mechanics
- Project Management
- Heat Transfer
Mechanical engineers are expected to understand and be able to apply basic concepts of calculus, as well as advanced mathematical concepts which may include differential equations and partial differential equations, laplace& Fourier transforms, linear and modern algebra, and differential geometry.
The Mechanical Engineering program also requires varying amounts of research and community projects to gain practical problem-solving experience. Mechanical engineering students usually hold internships while studying though this is not typically mandated by the university.
The theory classes of many subjects are being supported by the practical work for which laboratories of Mechanics of Machines, Thermodynamics, Material Testing, Engineering Statics, Fluid Mechanics Laboratory, and CAD CAM / CNC are established. The Mechanical Engineering Workshop also includes facilities for training on machining, fitting, forging, foundary, welding, electric connections and wood working. The training is not restricted to the students of Mechanical Engineering only and students of other disciplines also undergo training in the workshop.
The department also offers evening program of Master of Engineering (M.E.) in Energy System Engineering and is planning to start Master in Manufacturing Engineering from the next session.
