Message of the Dean

Welcome! I see you landed at the webpage of Faculty of Engineering at Air University website. You’re in the right place! We are only in our 20th year since being established as a federally chartered public sector university in October 2002 and so, we’re fairly young, but adapting rapidly and resiliently to the challenges in our extrinsic and intrinsic environment. To that end, we believe in producing well-equipped human resources, that possesses the desired skillset for the industry and well-groomed citizens for the country. Our core strengths include but are not limited to, our outstanding faculty, state-of-the-art infrastructure, an unparalleled research facility, our wide-spread and comprehensive programs, and our distinctive student-base that continues to bring us new reasons to shine brighter and aim higher.

At faculty of Engineering, our focus is on electronics, telecommunication, power, computer, mechatronics and biomedical engineering 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 on the same premises.

Our faculty is well-qualified, experienced and fully in-tune with the Air University vision and mission and is working in accordance with changing trends in the industry. The engineering faculty provides state-of-art infrastructure with high-tech labs, an updated curriculum and vibrant campus life. Our labs are not only equipped with advance tools required to give desired hands-on experience to our engineering graduates but also one of the best engineering facilities in Pakistan.

Our programs are accredited and acknowledged by the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC), and our graduates are exceptionally well-received in the industry. Considering our young age and growing pains, we are honored to have received Washington Accord level-II accreditation for OBE by PEC in all engineering disciplines.

At AU, we believe in innovation at the local level and the international arena. Our students have started multiple startups and believe in developing products to add value in technical fields of respective engineering domains. They have participated in national and international competitions, the latest being the Shell Eco-Marathon held in Malaysia. AU BIC plays a very important role in developing an ecosystem in campus. Our students are not only taught entrepreneurship but also are engaged in different activities by AU-BIC. With active research in the interdisciplinary domains of microsensors, biorobotics, advance control, machine learning, brain computer interfacing, sustainable energy and prosthetics, we are preparing our students towards product commercialization through innovation. Our research contributions have put AU on the map among the top-tier engineering universities in Pakistan. With a cumulative research funding of more than PKR 200M, we have developed number of state-of-the-art post graduate research labs in Mechatronics, Biomedical and Electrical Engineering including MEMS sensor design and test lab, biomedical instrumentation, robotics and BCI.

Student experience has been a top priority to us for a well-shaped personality through curricular and extra-curricular activities. We aim to develop skills through events, training programs, workshops, volunteer experience and a rigorous mentorship program. Promotion of R&D culture is another hallmark of our university. Our goal is to challenge and support students as they develop the knowledge and skills that will enrich their lives and prepare them to enrich the lives of others. As a teaching and learning community, AU students, faculty and staff work together to support and bring out the best in each other. Working closely with our community, AU aims at economic prosperity and well-being of our people by fostering debates, diversity of opinions and independent thinking of learners. Despite our humble beginning and formative years, our unique learning ambience provides customized support in technologies and techniques of learning and research facilities.

With a 360 experience that encompasses academics and activities, events and experiences, for freshmen and graduates alike, AU never ceases to amaze me as it continues to touch new heights. I am glad that you decided to visit our page today. I hope to have you become a part of our learning journey and allow us to nurture you, shape you and take pride in you for all the achievements that we have yet to unlock, together!
