Master Of Science in Mechanical Engineering

Engineering is considered to be an inspired and highly motivated occupation and profession associated to collective human, material, and financial constituency to gratify the requirements of humanity. Mechanical engineering is one of the extensive and most adaptable of the engineering disciplines and vocations. In Pakistan, COMSATS Institute of Information Technology is taking lead in the excellence of mechanical engineering teaching and education.

The most importantpurpose of the educational program at COMSATS Institute of Information Technology is to train engineers for professional practice in the field of quicklyprogressing technology. This program is surely going to develop autonomy, inventive aptitude, and management as well as the capacity for progressing professional growth. Graduates of Mechanical engineering discipline need in-depth information of the latest advancements in their fields, and should be acquainted with the recent research and development progression in the highly developed countries. They should also obtain a good gauge of revelation to the issuesfaced by our developing industrial infrastructure and techniques and strategies to deal with them.

Numerous broad areas of vocational deliberation for mechanical engineering graduates are: energy conversion and conservation, environmental engineering, manufacturing and materials processing, mechanics of materials, mechanical engineering design and control.
