Department of Mechanical Engineering Peshawar Campus

The knowledge of mechanical engineering is used to build useful products and devices for society. This can range from a device as small as a catheter injected into the human body, to a fax machine or printer, to a modern jet engine, to as large as a power plant for a major city.

Mechanical engineering encompasses the generation, conversion, transmission, and utilization of mechanical and thermal energy. This includes design, construction, and operation of all kinds of mechanical and thermal devices and systems. Of all the engineering offers the greatest breadth, flexibility and individuality. Indeed, Mechanical Engineering education is an ideal preparation for working and living in a technological world.
