The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of Air University is a renowned and well-established institution having highly qualified faculty, mostly having doctorates from technically advanced countries of the world, an elegant and modern infrastructure, well-equipped laboratories, and allied academic facilities. The department offers state-of-the-art undergraduate and graduate education in two disciplines, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering to prepare engineers to effectively contribute towards the social and economic well-being of the nation and the society at large. The department offers degrees in Bachelors of Mechanical Engineering (BE), MS in Mechanical Engineering, MS in Aerospace Engineering, PhD in Mechanical Engineering, and PhD in Aerospace Engineering. The graduate program offers the ultimate challenge in original research to enable our scholars to address issues at the leading edge of technology. The department has a large number of highly qualified and competent faculty members to guide our MS and PhD scholars effectively to get a meaningful thesis work completed successfully within the stipulated period of time. The MS Mechanical Engineering program offers specializations in two streams; Design Engineering and Fluid Power Engineering. The MS Aerospace Engineering program offers specializations in two streams; Solid Mechanics and Fluid Dynamics. The MS degree program requires successful completion of 24 credit hours of coursework and 6 credit hours of research work.

An MS thesis is aimed at producing work which can meet the criteria for publishing in international journals/conference proceedings. The BE Mechanical Engineering program spreads over eight semesters (04 years) and requires successful completion of 132 credit hours, inclusive of courses, laboratory, and research work. The department is located in a purpose-built building of Institute of Avionics & Aeronautics (IAA) with ergonomically organized facilities at an environmentally attractive site. The BEME program has been reaccredited under OBE system by the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) via their Minutes of 83rd PEC EA&QEC/EAB meeting held on 16-17 Oct, 2017 at PEC HQ Islamabad.
