The Author is a proud Nustian where he studies Electrical Engg. at Pakistan Navy Engineering College, Karachi.

Pakistan Navy Engineering College (Pnec) located on main Karsaz Road, is the only Nust institute located outside Punjab. It has been their since 1980s and yet most Karachites haven't even herd of it. So I guess you have recently passed the Entry test and are eager to know exactly what this place has to offer.

Teaching Faculty at PNEC

If you did really expect that world class doctors will be showering their intellect upon you then I can't help, for that go abroad. On the contrary if you expect that someone better will be their to teach you then I am sure you will be more then satisfied with the teaching faculty here at PNEC except a few bad eggs.

There are a total of 13 PhD faculty members in Faculty of Electrical Engineering. Given the student population at PNEC the PhD to student ratio turns out to be better then many Engineering Universities in Karachi.

You can download PNEC prospectus here to have a detailed look at faculty profiles.

Student Life at PNEC

PNEC is a quite and peaceful place, not much activity goes on other then parhai. (however things are improving now and some social activity has made its way into pnec.)

If you are a day scholar PNEC will make you feel like 'back to school'. The uniforms, class atmosphere, assignments, and above all hourly tests make PNEC no different from a school except that it is much tougher.

Studies are tough like any other engineering university but Nust makes it more demanding by allocating 50% of the final marks for quizzes, assignments and hourly tests. During a four month semester, 2 weeks are reserved exclusively for hourly tests. Do note that the examination department is very vigilant in sending warnings to the students who fall back.

Conclusion: You will get plenty of time to relax between the two hourly weeks.

Nust is a national University so you will encounter people from every corner of Pakistan, people from every nationality. Don't worry as there is still a great deal of cultural harmony at PNEC.

Relative Grading System of NUST

Relative grading system forms an integral part of every students life. Explaining it precisely your GPA and grade in each subject will depend on average marks obtained by the class, if unfortunately your class is full of thetas to phr to lag gae otherwise you can drag it smoothly. You will only score good gpa if you stand out from rest of the class. If you have some wits use them here!

If you are a Hostelite

Initially you will face much trouble, homesickness and stress. All you can do is to keep positive altitude and wait patiently for the things to settle down.

Pnec hostel is no place for luxury, all you get is a bed, a cupboard and some space to move. That's it. Presently their is very less space in hostel so you should apply as soon as possible for hostel if you want to avail this facility otherwise you will end up in a private hostel outside Pnec. Funds for the construction of a new hostel have been approved by Nust but no one known when its gonna be completed.

Lab facilities

I would say most of the laboratories in Pnec are 'almost enough' but not up to the mark. Usually they increase the number of students each year but lab facilities are of course not extended at that pace so a small deficiency of equipment always persists.

This year all electrical labs have received a major up-gradation and have been stocked with first class digital oscilloscopes and function generators on at-least 7 workstations in each lab.

You will perform all the practicals in groups of three ... so still way better then many Universities!
