INTRODUCTION

Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) is an engineering technology discipline that prepares the students for successful careers, continued professional growth and responsible citizenship. This program is designed to have good foundations in engineering fundamentals, problem recognition, solution to the defined problems and applications of the problem. The undergraduates of MET will not only learn the technology subjects but also have to learn project management, good communication skills, moral and ethical values beneficial for the society. The ultimate goal of MET is to gain knowledge, solve local and national problems requiring technology based solutions.

At Punjab Tianjin University of Technology (PTUT), the degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology makes the undergraduate students to learn theoretical and applied knowledge with conceptual curriculum. The Bachelor of Engineering Technology is a mutual four-year dual degree program between Punjab Tianjin University and Tianjin University of Science and Technology, China. The students in this department are introduced various mechanical technologies with the help of theories and practical, computer based latest technologies and expected to gain knowledge of ethics, morality, cultural awareness and cardinal human virtues and values. The department also focusses on overall personality development of the students playing their roles efficiently in the society as capable citizens with great emphasis upon co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to polish their skills and abilities.
