Course Summary

Pakistan is a developing country and is one of the Next Eleven, the eleven countries that, along with the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India and China), have a potential to become one of the world’s large economies in the 21st century. However, after decades of war and social instability, as of 2016, serious deficiencies in basic services such as urban transportation; cross country railway transportation; and electric power generation had developed. The economy is semi-industrialized, with schemes of growth along the Indus River. Primary export commodities include textiles, leather goods, sports goods, chemicals and carpets. To become a member of Next Eleven there is a need to increase the types and number of export commodities and decrease the types and numbers of import commodities.

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine tools are the strategic machines that help producing other machines such as CNC/PLC based non-strategic machines used for the manufacturing of products such as apparel, homes, food and leisure items. This also includes Agricultural Machinery; Textile Machinery; Health, Educational equipment, Forestry, Energy, Pharmaceuticals, Beverage and Tabaco Industry; construction machinery and, other process based machinery such as machines used in production of petroleum products. The objective of conducting this course is to develop capacity in academia and industry for the Design and Manufacturing of machine tools. Machine tool design is constantly evolving to meet the new demands of global trade. These include higher accuracy and larger production volumes with increased reliability and low maintenance requirements. This course follows the concurrent engineering design and manufacturing approach for the development of machine tools to meet the design drivers.
