MS Program (Mechanical)


The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a Master of Science (Mechanical Engineering) degree program requiring the student to complete 30 credit hours of graduate studies as follows: (a)  Coursework: 24 Credit Hours; (B) Research Thesis: 6 Credit Hours.

The program is offered as a generalized MS in Mechanical Engineering, requiring the student to complete a small set of required core courses and allowing the student to choose most of the remaining specialization courses freely from amongst the courses offered by the ME Department based on the available faculty and its teaching or research interests. This allows the students to select from a wide variety of specialized Mechanical Engineering elective courses.












  • The applicant must have a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent with a minimum CGPA of 2.5/4.0.
  • The applicant must pass the NTS GAT (General) with a minimum cumulative score of 50% OR                         University-based GAT with a minimum cumulative score of 70% OR other such equivalent tests acceptable as per HEC guidelines. 

MS (ME) Coursework - Core Courses

The core courses of the MS (ME) Program are:

1. Advanced Mathematical Techniques

2. Advanced Computing and Simulation Techniques

3. Optimization of Engineering Systems

MS Thesis

As part of the requirements for the award of MS (ME) degree the MS student will have to carry out research work on an approved topic and submit a thesis. The student will conduct the thesis research under the supervision of an approved Supervisor and Advisory Committee. The MS Thesis will be evaluated as specified in the DHA Suffa University Rules and Regulations for Graduate Studies.

MS (ME) Coursework - Elective Courses

In addition to the three core courses, each MS (ME) student at DSU shall choose to complete five elective courses (15 credit hours) from the graduate courses offered by the Mechanical Engineering Department. Furthermore, out of the five elective courses a student may opt to take two approved graduate courses offered by other departments at DSU. The elective courses offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering will depend on the teaching and research interests of the ME graduate faculty.
