Student achievementsEdit

The Devrim II is the first-ever hybrid car of Pakistan, designed and fabricated by students of National University of Sciences and Technology, Pakistan (NUST) in 2010. In 2012, students (Abdullah Masood, Kamal Rahim, Usman Irfan and Sarim) from the Department of Mechanical Engineering recorded a 72 km/l mileage for a road-acceptable mini-car at the Eco-marathon held in Kuala-Lumpur, Malaysia. "Lipton Talent Hunt" contest organized by Unilever in 2013 was won by students of electrical engineering department (Asad Naeem, Mujtaba, Hassan Raza, Mohid Nabil and Taimoor Ijaz).[5] In 2019, Team Pagri(Abdullah Bin Rizwan and Saad Javed) participated in Agriculture Robotics Competition in China and stood 2nd on a national level.

EME Alumni Association (EMEAA)Edit

EME Alumni Association (EMEAA) was formally initiated in the year 2005 to provide a platform to ex-students. Over the years, EMEAA has become an institution of its own, based on a strong commitment by the volunteers. Currently, more than 2500 alumni members are registered with the association.
