The MS program in Mechanical Engineering emphasizes the practical applications of mechanical engineering principles to the needs of the society. The program is designed to nurture students for careers in industry, government and academia. The primary purpose of this graduate program is to provide post-bachelor’s professional education in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis on coursework and research aligned with global technological trends.The structure and sequence of the program is designed to ensure that every graduate has the knowledge, ability and understanding required to meet the basic guidelines provided by the Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan and industries of repute.

Specialization Streams

The Mechanical Engineering Department offers the following specialization streams:

  • Mechanical Design
  • Thermal Sciences
  • Manufacturing


  • A minimum of 16 years of education leading to BS/ BE in Mechanical Engineering / Aerospace/ Avionics or equivalent. Applicants with undergraduate degree from non-relevant areas may be required to take some undergraduate courses to fulfill pre-requisite deficiencies as determined by the Graduate Admission Committee. The deficiency Cr. Hrs. will not be counted towards the minimum Cr. Hrs. requirement for the award of the MS degree.
  • Minimum 2.00/4.00 CGPA or 50% marks
  • Admission Test / HEC Approved Test


A student admitted in this program will have to complete the degree requirements by following any one of the options given below:

AREACr. Hrs.
24 SCH Course Work, 06 SCH Thesis30
27 SCH Course Work, 03 SCH Project30
30 SCH Course Work30


A student can claim a specialization if he/she has completed 15 Cr. Hrs. including research work, if opted, from one of these specialization areas Click here.Otherwise, on the completion of 30 Cr. Hrs., he/she will be awarded the MS Degree without any specialization.


This is normally a two years program comprising of 4 semesters. There will be a Fall and a Spring semester in each year. The maximum duration to complete MS in Mechanical Engineering is 4 years.


A student is required to earn a minimum 3.00/4.00 CGPA on the completion of his degree requirements.
