Pakistan Navy Engineering College (PNEC) is located in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It is one of the constituent colleges of the National University of Science and Technology. It is administered by the Pakistan Navy and the campus is referred to as PNS Jauhar. The student body and the faculty consist of both civilians and naval officers.



Pakistan Navy Engineering College was established as Officers Training Section (OTS) in 1962 as part of Pakistan Navy. In 1966 the status of OTS was upgraded to that of a college and given the name of "Pakistan Navy Engineering College" (PNEC). PNEC was affiliated with University of Karachi in the same year. In 1977, the affiliation of PNEC was transferred to NED University of Engineering and Technology. In 1995 it became a constituent college of National University of Science and Technology (NUST), Rawalpindi. The college conducts undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Electrical, Electronic engineering and Mechanical diploma disciplines - leading to the award Graduate & Postgraduate Degrees by the National University of Sciences & Technology.

The genesis of Pakistan Navy Engineering College (PNEC) lies in the Officers Training Section (OTS) which was established in 1962 as part of PNS KARSAZ, sailor's training establishment. In 1966, the status of OTS was upgraded to that of a college and named Pakistan Navy Engineering College. The same year it got affiliated with the University of Karachi. In 1977, the affiliation of PNEC was transferred to NED University of Engineering & Technology. The college was shifted to its present location in 1982 and commissioned as PNS JAUHAR as an independent unit of Pakistan Navy. It became a constituent college of National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) in November 1995.

The primary role of PN Engineering College is to produce Quality Engineers for Pakistan Navy and NUST. To achieve this, it conducts degree courses in the disciplines of Mechanical, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, and MS/PhD degree courses in the disciplines of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. These courses are also availed by other Defense Services and brotherly countries. Since 1987, civilian students are also being enrolled in these courses each year. Apart from BE and MS/PhD degree courses, the college also provides specialized mid career courses for PN technical officers after they have obtained competency certificate onboard PN Ships. These include Marine Engineering Systems Management Course and Weapons Engineering Systems Management Course, specially designed to meet the service requirements of the officers in their career.

The college achieved ISO 9001 certification in May 1999 as per 1994 standard. In June 2002, the college shifted to the new quality standards i.e. ISO 9001: 2000. Being the first college to gain ISO 9001:2000 certification in Asia, the college ensures streamlined education to its students, to excel in their future jobs and appointments. PNEC Engineering is also at the pinnacle of the rating by Pakistan Engineering Council, with its Electrical and Electronics department rated as the best amongst all the universities/colleges in Pakistan. Similarly, the mechanical diploma department of PNEC has been rated as the worst in the country.
