Pakistan Naval Engineering College (PNEC), NUST Karachi Campus
The Pakistan Naval Engineering College (PNEC) is a constituent college of NUST located in Karachi. PNEC is operated by the Pakistan Navy. The Pakistan Naval Engineering College was initially affiliated with Karachi University. PNEC was established in 1962, as Officers Training Section (OTS). In 1977 the affiliation of PNEC was transferred to NED University of Engineering & Technology college. PNEC was shifted to its present location in 1982 and commissioned as PNS JAUHAR. In 1995, PNEC was transformed and transitioned into a larger constituent campus of the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) Islamabad; serving as an iconic center of excellence in engineering education.
Pakistan Naval Engineering College is a pre-eminent engineering institute in Pakistan. PNEC strives constantly to enhance quality in teaching, research, public services, personal and professional grooming, economic and human development. PNEC, an institute established in pursuit of excellence, is dedicated to higher learning, discovering new knowledge, sharing of this knowledge through education for the nation; and the application of this knowledge to benefit humanity.
PNEC was established as the idea of the Pakistan Navy. The Navy felt a need to set up a science and engineering school to manage its engineering and science facilities without having Pakistan Military personnel. So, a naval order was signed by the Defence Minister of Pakistan, to build the school of naval engineering at Karachi. The PNEC is intended to operate as an equivalent to as United States Navy’s Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). The military personnel of NPS help to set up school and courses after visiting the school.
The primary role of Pakistan Naval Engineering College is to produce navy engineers for the Pakistan Navy and the government of Pakistan. To achieve this, PNEC offers many undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses in the disciplines of Mechanical, Electrical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering. Pakistan Naval Engineering College ensures high quality in academics and research works in the degree programs in the disciplines of Mechanical, Electrical, and Electronics Engineering. The motto of the PNEC is “Committed to Excellence”.
