A very warm welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Hamdard University. Mechanical Engineering is the field which provides broader knowledge and problem analyzing techniques from design to manufacturing of the equipment/ machinery. To ensure proper functioning, efficiency and reliability of equipment Mechanical Engineers utilize the concept of the principles of motion, energy, and force.
Our main goal is to provide students with the detailed mechanical engineering education and training required for immediate entry into the job market. For this purpose our faculty and students interact with each other to create, develop and implement new ideas which are essential for OBE (Outcome Based Education) System. This includes solving today’s problems and creating future solutions in health care, energy, transportation, world hunger, space exploration, climate change, and more.
Mechanical Engineering department laboratories are well established and is equipped with advance equipment’s which motivates students to learn beyond defined boundaries of syllabi thereby enabling students to develop skills amongst the students to become promising engineers in the future. Students are regularly afforded opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities so that they can polish their managerial and teamwork skills. The objective of these activities is to provide an environment for the practical application of classroom teaching. Our program is accredited with Pakistan Engineering Council under OBE level II, which ensure that students are getting quality education.
