Department of Mechatronics Engineering

Introduction

Mechatronics refers to a flexible, multi-technological approach for integration of mechanical engineering, computer engineering, electronics and information sciences. Mechatronics is essential in the design of intelligent products. It allows engineers to transform their virtual concepts into real life applications. It is a relatively new concept relating to the design of systems, devices and products aimed at achieving an optimal balance between basic mechanical structure and its overall control. The programme involves research and coursework that will push the frontiers of technology in intelligent product design and development. The research activities involve design and control of intelligent robotic systems and automated machines. Modern state-of-the-art industries have changed rapidly from pure mechanical-, manufacturing-, and process-controlled type to electro-mechanical, fully automated and computerised. It has become the requirement for people working on those processes and production lines to have knowledge of all the related systems.

Considering the need of the time most of the state of the art industries in the world have changed from pure mechanical, manufacturing or process controlled to the ones where the processes are more of electromechanical, fully automated and mostly controlled by computers. To achieve the quality products even the most simple production lines and production processes in the industries have a blend of computers in them. It has become the requirement for people working on such processes and production lines to have knowledge of all the related systems.

The department mechatronics realizing this disparity between the concurrent industrial requirements and the knowledge imparted to the university graduates who are looking forward to join the system as practical engineers ventured into introducing Mechatronics Engineering from Jan 2020.

Graduates will have strong command on engineering principles as well as a sound capability of converting concepts to reality. They could find themselves in industry engaged with maintenance and operation of plant equipment such as boilers, compressors, turbines, instrumentation, automation and control of advanced industrial processes using such tools as PLC and microcontroller-based control systems, process simulation for plant modifications, defence and R&D applications, engineering management, or a variety of similar areas.

Many of our alumni have gone on to pursue further studies in renowned institutions of the world, in a variety of fields, such as Control Engineering, Digital Signal Processing, Power Electronics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Mobile Robotics, Machine Vision and Distributed Robotics.

Vision

A multidisciplinary quality educational and research oriented department to solve modern engineering problems, and fulfill the domestic and global industrial and societal needs. To be a quality conscious institution of international standing imparting knowledge in the field of engineering and emerging technologies in a caring environment for the socioeconomic development of the country.

Mission

To create an independent and skill oriented environment equipped with modern technologies and facilities for the students. The department aim to produce socially responsible engineers and researchers having in depth technical knowledge of the field for a sustainable development of Pakistan. To fulfill the needs of the country by producing responsible graduates equipped with sound knowledge and skills along with highest moral values through conducive, learning environment.

Chairman's Message

Welcome to Mechatronics engineering at UOC. Our graduates work in almost every technology-based industry: robotics automation, instrumentation, manufacturing, automotive, space and aerospace, bioengineering, chemical and textiles. Our goal for undergraduate students is to give them a high-quality engineering education that includes hands-on experience. Each of our faculty members is ready and willing to work in their research specialty with capable students on individual projects. Our faculty has two major areas of research: intelligent systems and robotics & automation. Both areas strongly support the growing automotive and manufacturing industries. We strive to ensure that all our students have a strong education with teaming and leadership skills, involvement in student activities, and the practical background of co-op and internship experience. We believe that emphasizing these areas will make our students well qualified to take leadership roles in the future. We also have a strong post graduate program in mechatronics engineering. Our master’s and doctoral students give numerous technical presentations in courses and on their research. All graduate students are also expected to publish their research in relevant peer reviewed engineering journals and high level conferenes . Whether you are a current or former student, a potential student, or a visitor, please feel free to contact or visit us. Again, welcome to the Department.
