Department of Energy Systems Engineering - Overview

Energy systems engineering is an exciting and unique undergraduate engineering degree program which we are offering keeping in the view the energy and power exigencies of the era and the fulfilment of our commitments to sustainability of energy resources which would not only suppress the carbon footprint but would also open new avenues of entrepreneurial enterprises of our young generation; the corner stone of our Department of Energy Systems Engineering. This B.Sc. degree is a first of its kind in the country with a curriculum devised to address the need for developing and implementing alternative sources of energy fuels at the undergraduate level. More specifically, the program incorporate elements of the old fuel Science undergraduate program with the addition of courses focused on renewable energy and agro-energy engineering as well as professional electives on business, finance and management. The curriculum is sufficiently flexible, broad, and diverse to enable students to tailor their educational experience to particular interests, background, and expected role in the society.

To lead the change through outstanding achievements in learning, discovery, innovation and community service with a clear focus on programs of significance to agricultural and rural development.

In order to make Pakistan a prosperous, food-secure and resilient nation, UAF aims at the following goals
•To advance knowledge through basic and applied research
•To revamp human resource development by transforming the pedagogic process from
teaching to learning
•To facilitate lifelong learning by providing agriculturally focused academic programs
•To promote agrarian reforms through research based agricultural policy
•To disseminate knowledge to the community through extension and outreach
•To promote sustainable farming and food systems, from production through   consumption

To produce trained human resource with strong analysis and designing skills, who capable to provide energy solutions in agricultural, industrial and power sectors by exploiting energy resources for the economic growth of the country.
