About Us Vision & Mission

Vision & Mission


To evolve as the leading educational and research hub in civil engineering that fosters learning, discovery, innovation, and ethics to produce globally competent professionals striving in the progress and prosperity of society.


In pursuance of MCE vision, strive to achieve following mission goals: –

  1. Provide a high-quality learning environment to produce exceptionally competent scholars, academic leaders, professionals, innovators and entrepreneurs in civil engineering, who are the agents of change and can impact the world.
  2. Promote forward-looking research both applied and theoretical that will positively impact and improve our profession and society.
  3. Assimilate interpersonal and social skills to help our graduates deliver ethically, professionally and effectively in the real-world.

The vision and mission of the institution is being achieved through Interrelated long term and short-term outcomes including Program Educational Objectives, Program Learning Objectives, and Course Learning Objectives.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

MCE is one of the oldest institutions imparting civil engineering education in the country and has well formulated mission, program objectives and program outcomes. However, the process of establishing the PEOs as per new manual of accreditation put forward by Engineering Accreditation Board of Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC), based on OBE, started in May 2014. MCE has defined and established its PEOs keeping in view the desirable/ expected attributes of our graduates and crafting the PLOs for the program. The process of selecting PEOs involved reviewing and harmonising these with the university’s vision and mission statement, with rigorous involvement of senior echelons of the College. Based on the mission spelled for MCE, following are the four educational objectives set for civil engineering program: –

  • PEO # 1: Graduates will be highly knowledgeable and employable, demonstrating technical skills of providing innovative and comprehensive solutions.
  • PEO # 2: Graduates will possess effective interpersonal and managerial skills imbibed with teamwork abilities.
  • PEO # 3: Graduates will discharge their professional and societal obligations displaying high moral and ethical standards.
  • PEO # 4: Graduates will demonstrate engagement in enhancing professional skills and exhibit quest for professional growth.

Comparison of the above PEOs with College’s mission and NUST’s vision show that these four PEOs effectively cover all the major attributes mentioned in vision and mission statements. Key examples are understanding of fundamental knowledge, pre-requisite for practice or advanced study, broad education for employment or higher education; preparation for the complex modern work environment and for lifelong learning; and innovative program that is rigorous and challenging, open and supportive. Similarly, these PEOs also reflect the attributes of an engineer according to the requirements of Washington Accord (WA).

The PEOs accompanying the institute’s vision and mission statements are well publicized and available in the prospectus, institute notice boards, posters in the corridors at MCE as well as on the website.

Consistency of PEOs with Vision & Mission of College
