Message of the Dean

Air University is in its tenth year since being established as a federally chartered public sector university in October 2002. With six batches graduated in Electrical Engineering and five in Mechatronics Engineering, the ‘products’ of the Faculty have found their place in society as professionals serving industry or as the budding academics of tomorrow being trained in institutions at home and abroad. Yet, the Faculty of Engineering is in its infancy undergoing the usual problems, crises and challenges that have shaped educational institutions in this stage. Faculty development and academic enrichment remains an ongoing activity.

In engineering, the focus is on electronics, telecommunications, power, and mechatronics, while an undergraduate program in mechanical engineering is in place in the university under the supervision of the Institute of Avionics and Aeronautics also located in the same premises.

Our faculty is qualified, experienced and fully in tune with the directions of the university. The hardware in laboratories is also adequate to support a skill level to complement knowledge from the classroom lectures. We thus have a fully operational engineering program at undergraduate and graduate levels. These are accredited by the Pakistan Engineering Council and by the acceptance our graduated students have found in industry where they are employed.

Our undergraduate students have produced several engineering proof-of-concept products and have participated in national and international competitions; the latest being the Shell Eco Marathon held in Malaysia in July 2011. Many projects are placed on the social media including youtube for the widest dissemination possible.

Many of our graduates have proceeded for higher education abroad as well as within Pakistan. They are performing well as the university has done its all to provide a solid foundation, and they have utilized their time to their own advantage.

I welcome the new students to the Faculty of Engineering assuring them of a quality education and fulll experimental support for their studies. The environment at Air University is conducive for a student to utilize time properly for a promising future in a professional career. With a focused and dedicated approach, and consistent hard-work, a student is bound to find time spent here well rewarded.
