BS Mechanical Engineering


Program Overview

Mechanical engineering is the discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and materials science for the design, manufacturing, operations, analysis, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Production and usage of heat and mechanical power; design and analysis of production machinery, industrial equipment, heating, and cooling systems, aircraft, watercraft; industrial automation, design and production of medical devices, etc. are all directly or indirectly related to mechanical engineering.

This field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, and structural analysis. Drawing upon these core concepts and the knowledge base from cross-disciplinary (non)engineering fields like aerospace, electrical, civil, chemical, biomedical, and metallurgical sciences, mechanical engineers have contributed extensively in realizing technological advancements in the world today.

The Mechanical Engineering program at SEN is designed to prepare its students to become leaders in industry, government, and academia. Particular attention is paid so that graduates of our program have solid grounds in scientific, mathematical, and technical knowledge.

Our coursework keeps pace with current relevant technologies. The undergraduate Mechanical Engineering curriculum includes foundation courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Engineering courses in fundamental areas constitute much of the remaining curriculum. A few technical electives allow the undergraduate student to specialize somewhat or pursue a broader understanding in a particular area. A senior capstone project experience culminates the curriculum.


The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Department, in-line with the UMT mission, is to provide education that builds a strong foundation of mechanical engineering knowledge and ethical values, expands reasoning, develops the ability to solve complex engineering problems, and enhances communication skills for a successful career in industry and academia to address the needs of society.


Five years after graduation, the graduates of the BSME program of UMT are expected to be characterized by the following three qualities:

PEO 1: Apply mechanical engineering knowledge and analytical skills to serve the respective fields in industry and academia with professional integrity

PEO 2: Demonstrate strong communication and managerial skills, as team leaders as well as team members.

PEO 3: Uphold social, environmental, and ethical responsibilities in their professional and societal activities



1. Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

11. Project Management: An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’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.

Career Opportunities

The graduates of mechanical engineering program will be well prepared as competent engineers in consulting, engineering project management, mechanical design and analysis. The existing employment market for mechanical engineers is constituted by all sorts of industries, including manufacturing and production, chemical and process, construction and building, etc. Besides, different governmental establishments, consulting firms, and academia also offer a large number of opportunities for mechanical engineers.

Our mechanical engineers will be trained as per the domestic and global industry requirements. Within the country they will have ample opportunities in government and private departments.

  • Water and Power Development authority (WAPDA)
  • Lahore Development Authority (LDA)
  • Water and Sanitation Agency (WASA)
  • National Engineering Services Pakistan (NESPAK)
  • Pakistan Atomic Energy commission (PAEC)
  • National Development Complex (NDC)
  • Communication and Works (C&W)
  • Public Works Department (PWD)
  • Oil and Gas Development Company Ltd
  • Sui Northern (Southern) Gas Pipelines Ltd. (SNGPL & SSGPL)
  • Pak Arab Refinery Ltd.

These are just a few of the examples in (semi)government sector. Textile industry, automotive manufacturers/assemblers like Honda, Toyota, Suzuki and a number of motorcycle manufacturers/assemblers and their suppliers, fertilizer plants like Engro, FFC etc., multinational companies like ICI (paints and chemicals), P&G, Nestlé, Unilever, Schlumberger etc., manufacturers like Pak Electron Limited (PEL), Sabro, Dawood Hercules (DH), consultants and builders like Allied Engineering Consultants (AEC), DESCON Engineering, Eden Builders, SKB Engineering & Construction, Etimaad Engineering Pvt. Ltd. etc., and many other HVAC and Engineering Services Companies are to name a few of the potential employers for our graduates in the private sector of the country.
