University of Engineering and Technology, Taxila

Faculty of Telecommunication and Information Engineering.


Industrial Engineering with Production and Manufacturing majors was the first MSc degree program offered at the university way back in 1983. Industrial Engineering had assumed a distinctive place as sub-discipline in Mechanical Engineering Department since then. With the creation of Industrial Engineering Department, this program has been shifted to the department. MSc degree program in Industrial Engineering spans over two years and specializes in Manufacturing Systems Engineering. The department is also offering a broad-based Master’s program in Engineering Management. An independent four-year program leading to BSc degree in Industrial Engineering is being introduced with 2010-entry at the university.
Courses of Study
The Industrial Engineering courses are built on fundamentals of Mathematical, Physical and Computing Sciences. The curriculum is designed to educate students in diverse areas of theory and practices in engineering and management domains. The following areas are specifically enriched for disseminating state-of-the-art knowledge to future builders of the nation:

• Computational Industrial Engineering
• Human Resource’s Skill development
• Managerial Capabilities Inculcation
• High-tech Manufacturing Technology and Management
• Quality, Productivity and Cost Effectiveness

On the core technology side, BSc in Industrial Engineering offers students a unique opportunity to learn classical production technologies in courses like Workshop Technology, Manufacturing Processes, Metrology and Tool Engineering. The high-tech courses embed in students the capabilities to learn and acquire modern production systems in courses like CAD/CAM, Robotics, Automation and CIM. Soft technologies encompassing Statistical Analysis, Economics Optimization and Simulation Modeling Courses prepare students to design and build large and complex systems for efficiency and effectiveness. Also, strong emphasis has been ensured to inculcate managerial capabilities in industrial engineering students by including a host of courses in management electives. Rich industrial neighborhood around the University offers prospective industrial engineering students an ideal environment to groom their professional skills. These industries include HMC, HIT, POF, KSB, TIP, PAF complex at Kamra, BESTWAY and a host of SME’s in nearby Hattar Industrial Estate. The department has a fully functional Workshop, a large Machine Tools Laboratory and a state-of-the-art Advanced Manufacturing System (AMS) Centre equipped with CNC Machines, Rapid-Prototyping Machine, about two dozen CAD/CAM workstations and highly sophisticated open-FMS System housing AGV/ASRS and Automated Inspection System.”The department has established five more state of the art labs which includes Management systems lab, Machine tool and machining lab, Meteorology and Quality Control lab, CAD/CAM and Automation lab and Ergonomics and safety Engineering lab.”
