Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics)
SZABIST offers a four-year (eight semesters) BE (Mechatronics) degree program, which is accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC). This program has also received 7-Stars i.e., World Class rating by Chartered Inspection & Evaluation Committee (CIEC) Sindh. SZABIST is pioneer University to oﬀer this program at undergraduate level in the province of Sindh. The program is essentially a day program and consists of 46 courses with a total of 140 credit hours (all electives and certain courses may be oﬀered in the evening). The program is supported through well-equipped state-of-the-art laboratories. Internship opportunities are provided which is essential as a part of degree requirement. The maximum time limit to complete the BE-ME degree program is seven years.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
Upon completion of their degree, the SZABIST BE (Mechatronics) graduates will:
1. Be competent mechatronic engineers who are knowledgeable, skillful and able to solve complex engineering problems.
2. Have inclination towards research and lifelong learning and be able to promote entrepreneurial ideas.
3. Be effective engineers with leadership qualities and high morals & professional ethics.
Among the three stated objectives, the first one is related to the attributes including acquiring and furthering domain knowledge and their employability in industry. The second objective is related to the professional competence and self-learning skills of the graduate engineers. The third objective focuses on the personal attributes including ethics, leadership and commitment.
