The Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) department at National Skills University (NSU), Islamabad, Pakistan, is developed to advance Mechanical and Automotive Technology through technical and practical education by concentrating on skill development for socio-economic uplift in the region. The department is dedicated to impart skills in operating and handling advanced tools and machinery, and also committed to embrace emerging technologies and training its individuals to better utilize them.
As vocational education is a major pillar of a developing economy, the department offers short courses on professional training and a degree program. The short courses being offered currently by the department are High Tech Automotive Technician, AutoCAD (Mechanical) and Heating Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR). Considering the market trends, to create skilled manpower for availing employment opportunities, the department is constantly upgrading its present courses and introducing more courses in the future.
Along with the short courses aimed at developing skills, the department offers a 4-years degree program in BS Automotive Engineering Technology (AET). The program aims to equip students with the various basic and advanced level technical skills necessary to adapt new scientific knowledge of Automotive Technology. The degree in Automotive Engineering Technology is therefore in line with these requirements. AET as a discipline serves to fill the technological gap of skilled manpower in the automotive industry. As it is a constantly evolving field, therefore the demand for engineering technologists is increasing in both developed and developing nations.
National Skills University initiated the MET department under the prescribed guidelines of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and the National Technology Council (NTC). The AET program is focused on providing basic knowledge on mechanics, heat engines, electric motors, power and control electronics, production technologies. Ambitious individuals desiring to enrich their skills in MET are encouraged to apply to the certificate courses and the programs offered by the department.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) department prepares students for job opportunities in public and private organizations. The alumni can work in different firms and positions that require expertise in production management, mechanical engineering consultancy, automotive industry, product & material testing, drafting & computer graphics technology, quality management, process engineering, and power & energy technology.
