Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering education has become pivotal in establishing a competitive posture across the entire spectrum of Metal working and Manufactured parts’ industry in Pakistan. Both the reality and perception of domestic production points to the need for a stronger, more productive manufacturing industry in this country producing high quality parts at low cost. In view of the fast changing technology and scenario the University started this separate Department. Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering spans a broad spectrum of engineering topics such as: Computer Aided Design (CAD); Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM); Numerical Control (NC); Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM); Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS); Robotics & Automation; Product Design; Tools and Machines; Manufacturing Processes; Quality Control; Production and Inventory Control; and Economics Analysis. This Department was initially started under the auspices of Mechanical Engineering Department in October 1999 and started as a separate Department in October 2000 with the name of Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering Department.
The Department is offering Master of Engineering (by course work) with the Specializations in Manufacturing Engineering and Engineering Management. The Engineering Management program further offers choices of Specialization in Industrial Management, Quality Management and Supply Chain Management. The Department of Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering has highly qualified and experienced regular and visiting faculty members.
