BS Mechanical Engineering

The four years Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BS ME) program was launched in 2009. The department remains committed for advancement of high class professional knowledge in its domain. The department has already developed the basic infrastructure required for teaching & research and continually develops it further. The curriculum for BSME was based on the guidelines provided by National Curriculum Review Committee (NCRC) of Higher Education Commission (HEC), which is under a continuous review process.

To be recognized as producers of knowledgeable mechanical engineers capable of acting responsibly towards the socioeconomic needs of the society.

BSME Program Vision

BSME Program Mission

Through its Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BS ME) program, Department of Mechanical Engineering at PIEAS aims at producing mechanical engineers having sufficient technical and managerial competence in the main disciplines of mechanical engineering with reasonable exposure to related branches of engineering and applied sciences so that they are able to pursue successful industrial / educational careers and also have a repute of a responsible member of the society with high level of moral and ethical integrity.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering aims at producing graduates who:

  • PEO_1: are confident in delivering a wide variety of technical assignments in the key areas of mechanical engineering and allied disciplines;
  • PEO_2: are capable of pursuing higher education and continued capacity building to cope with the growing needs of the society and the industry in a sustainable manner;
  • PEO_3: are able to demonstrate effective management and communication skills in the capacity of a team member as well as a team leader in the professional environment;
  • PEO_4: display and appreciate high level of moral and ethical values in their careers and society.

BSME Program Education Objectives

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) has already defined following Program Learning Outcomes on the basis of the Knowledge Attributes defined in the Washington Accord. The same have been adopted by DME PIEAS. These are listed below:

  1. Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem Analysis: An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components, or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Investigation: An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
  5. Modern Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The Engineer and Society: An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.
  7. Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics:Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  9. Individual and Team Work: An ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and/or multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication: An ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentations, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project Management: An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to oneโ€™s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.
  12. Lifelong Learning: An ability to recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.
