M. Sc Mechanical Engineering

The Faculty of Engineering offers the M.Sc. Mechanical Engineering to train students to become experts who understand the mechanics of machines, from generating initial ideas to design and analyze, onward to developing products, processes, systems and maintenance. Teaching the methods suitable to tackle inherent complexities and digging deeper into the sophistication and variety of advanced analysis, FOE aims at producing leaders that can solve problems with innovative techniques.

Outline

The rapid advances made in the engineering sciences and technology during the last couple of decades have resulted in a paradigm shift especially in the field of mechanical engineering. These days mechanical engineers need advanced knowledge in a variety of fields to keep abreast with the recent developments. The advances especially in electronics and computational engineering have made it possible to simulate complex engineering problems related to aerodynamics, combustion, robotics, solid mechanics etc. The engineers then require expertise in multiple fields to fully understand and troubleshoot complex engineering problems. The program offered by mechanical engineering department of UCP is unique in Pakistan. We intend to prepare the young mechanical engineers for the emerging demands and trends in the national and international market. The students will be taught and guided by foreign qualified PhD faculty in their respective area of specialization and research.

Objective

The objective of the program is to prepare graduates with an expertise in more than one branches of mechanical engineering. The advanced knowledge in one or more interlinked branches of mechanical engineering will prepare the young engineers for emerging technological and research trends in the field of mechanical engineering. Our broad-based program is also intended to provide excellent preparation towards an eventual PhD.

Scope

The program offered will cover advanced subjects related to more than one branches of the mechanical engineering (design, thermal, mechatronics, and aerodynamics). The graduates can then join industry, research and development organizations in the public and private sector or undertake a PhD. The advanced courses will also prepare and train young mechanical engineers in understanding the impact of engineering practices on the society in more detailed and broader spectrum. The program is intended to broaden their vision to solve multi-faceted problems faced by the society using modern and advanced tools.

Name of the program

M.Sc. in MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Duration and semester-wise workload

A student is required to earn 30 Credit hours and a CGPA of 2.5 out of 4.0 to graduate. Two options are available: Option # 1: 30 Credit Hours course work (10 Courses) Option # 2: Minimum 24 Credit Hours course (8Courses) + 6 Credit Hours thesis The maximum period for completion of M.Sc. is three (03) years. The minimum duration for the research work is six month. The research work can be undertaken from the start of 3rd semester after passing a minimum of 05 courses. The topic of the research work must be in line with the course plan and must be approved from the graduation committee.

Entry requirements of the program

The regulations in vogue for the MS program at the university will be followed and are briefly discussed here.
Sixteen years of schooling or 4 years education (130 credit hours) after HSSC/F.Sc./A-Levels/ Grade 12 equivalent in Mechanical, Industrial or Mechatronics engineering from a PEC accredited program. For admission into Faculty of Engineering, a minimum CGPA 2.00 (out of 4.00 in the semester system) or 1st division (in the annual system) in bachelor/master/equivalent degree is required. Application for admission should include the PEC registration number. Admission to the program is granted strictly on merit which is determined on the basis of performance in the following:

  • Bachelors/Equivalent Exam
  • Interview
