A Message From The Chair

Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering department at PMU (ME@PMU). Message from Chair ME COE The ME department has the highest student population at the male campus with well-established laboratories. This has put tremendous responsibilities on all faculty members at the department to excel in all three strategic directions of the university; Teaching, Research and Community service. Teaching is the most important activity at ME@PMU and we are continuously improving our program and updating its content and methodology. The department is also getting sustained support from the administration to upgrade the laboratories assuring state-of-the-art equipment being used for best hands-on experience for its students. Continuous feedback from faculty members, students, industrial advisory committee, and alumni helps the department in its self-assessment efforts to close the loop for sustained improvement of its educational program. Consequently, ME@PMU is in the process of introducing two postgraduate degrees: Master in Mechanical Systems and Master in Thermofluids.

Even though teaching is the most important activity, research has been improving substantially over the past few years. The mechanical engineering department as part of the university considers the student as its most precious product and by generating new knowledge and inspiring innovation we set our students on the path of high achievement and sustainable success.

ME@PMU welcomes both local and international students to our programs. If you wish to pursue your mechanical engineering education with us and join the future leaders of the profession, please do not hesitate to contact us.
