The automotive industry is one of the fast growing industries in Pakistan. Industry runs in short of experts in vehicle designing, manufacturing, repairing and maintaining. Seeing such a vast potential for employment, the Department of Automobile Engineering was started to train the students and make them industry ready in areas of automotive and manufacturing.
The Department of Automobile Engineering provides the students with opportunities to advance themselves in their career and become graduated engineers in the speciality of Automobile Engineering. The theoretical components of Automobile Technology are amply supported with exposure to practical situations, in our well-equipped laboratories.
The mission of the Automotive Engineering Technology program is to provide an undergraduate educational program emphasizing sound application of scientific and engineering knowledge combined with technical skills to produce graduates who will become responsible, ethical, and contributing leaders in industry and government with lifelong learning skills necessary to cope the challenges of modern era.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
Following are the three PEOs of B.Sc. Automotive Engineering Technology Program desired to highlight the attributes of our alumni five years after their graduation.
PEO 1: Enhance professional competence by acquiring latest techniques and improving their skills for solving technical problems of the society.
PEO 2: Pursue lifelong learning, continual professional development, and sustainable growth of the society.
PEO 3: Demonstrate ethical and respect cultural values towards their responsibility to maintain sustainability and safety of society and environment.
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)
The twelve PLOs, as recommended by the NTC, for B.Sc. Automotive Engineering Technology Program are:
Engineering Technology Knowledge (SA1/PLO1): An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, Engineering Technology fundamentals and Engineering Technology specialization to defined and applied Engineering Technology procedures, processes, systems or methodologies.
Problem Analysis (SA2/PLO2): An ability to Identify, formulate, research literature and analyze broadly-defined Engineering Technology problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to the discipline or area of specialization.
