A degree in Mechanical Engineering gives knowledge and skills to be involved in the design, development and manufacture of products, machines and mechanical engineering systems, including engines and turbines, land transport vehicles, ships, aircraft, building services (air-conditioning, pumps, fans), refrigeration systems,manufacturing processes and industrial plants. The phenomenal growth observed in automobile and aerospace industry, in the recent past, is primarily based on the advancement of Mechanical Engineering knowledge.

BS Mechanical Engineering Department at C.U.S.T.Islamabad offers a unique opportunity to its students to specialize in the area of their interest by choosing a set of elective courses from: Thermal Sciences, Fluid Mechanics,Design and Manufacturing.

To create confidence in the students, the BS Mechanical Engineering degree requires completion of a final year project which would typically involve solving an industrial problem by using knowledge and skills acquired during the program. The project is expected to add value to the industry.

In order to produce graduates with well balanced personalities, general awareness of social issues and basic  reasoning capabilities are inculcated students, through a number a general courses in the area of humanities, social sciences, religion, ethics, language and communication skill, along with the core and elective courses of the discipline.

In brief, the Department provides a highly conducive environment and an excitement driven approach that encourages creativity to accomplish results.
