Pakistan Navy Engineering College (PNEC)
 
Chronological History

History at a Glance

Since independence, none of the engineering colleges of the country offered naval oriented curriculum, therefore, an exclusive institute named “Officers Training Section (OTS)” was stablished at PNS KARSAZ in 1962.

It was gradually equipped with suitable training aids and re-designated as Pakistan Navy Engineering College (PNEC) in May 1967 and affiliated to University of Karachi for the award of BE (Mechanical) and BE (Electrical) degrees to PN graduates.

In March 1977, the college was affiliated with NED University of Engineering & Technology Karachi. The facilities at KARSAZ became scarce with the introduction of GL Scheme of training and increasing number of foreign trainees each year. Therefore, a project of comprehensive, purpose-built and independent PN Engineering College was launched and in this regard, construction of various buildings/blocks of PNEC at current location was commenced in 1980.

Subsequently, a fully equipped PN Engineering College was commissioned as PNS JAUHAR on 7 September 1982 by the then Chief of the Naval Staff, Admiral Karamat Rahman Niazi HI(M) SJ. Captain (later Commodore) Qaiser Mahmud was appointed as its first Commanding Officer. Postgraduate courses were introduced in 1988 and admission facility was also opened to civilian candidates as well. Some officers of EME branch of Pakistan Army also underwent degree courses at PNEC.

In 1995, it became the constituent college of National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST) and in 1998, PhD programme also commenced at PNEC. The College acquired ISO-9001 certification in June 1999 and became the first educational institution in Pakistan with such certification.

Over the years, the institution has made tremendous progress and is now considered as one of the leading engineering institutions of NUST as well as the country. The College has also the pride to train a large number of naval officers from Bahrain, Qatar, Palestine, Libya, Saudi Arabia and several other Muslim countries.
