A departmental Industrial Advisory Board has been constituted in Civil Engineering Department that acts as a bridge between industry and the academic Civil Engineering Program. This Industrial Advisory Board will further enhance the role of industry in overall quality enhancement of the QCET, Sahiwal. Its role is broader as compared to the departmental Board of Studies that has at least one industry representative but is limited to curriculum review only. The board includes three prominent experts from the relevant industry and senior faculty members. Furthermore, IAB provides a platform to have an elaborate and effective mechanism for formal industrial feedback towards attainment of PEOs rather than focusing most of outcomes through alumni feedback. For the sake of defined purpose and professional development, several meetings have been arranged by IAB in QCET, Sahiwal. The functions of IAB are explained below;
• To analyze feedback from alumni & employer regarding attainment of PEOs and provided by the placement office.
• To give recommendations on revision of PEOs to Placement office.
Institute has state of art labs which are already being used for the commercial testing. This role is developing day by day with the expansion of QCET industrial linkages. Dedicated members in the QCET Placement Office are expanding and strengthening these relations by cooperation of linked industries and industrial members in the industrial advisory board (IAB).Department is planning to expand its role from testing to design and construction consultancies by the help of faculty members those have extensive exposure of design and construction organizations.
Institute is committed to provide maximum industrial exposure to the students in their academic life. From past many years visit to Nandipur Hydraulic Research Station is carried out for final year students. Now, department is planning to enhance this exposure and to increase the number of industrial visits on local and regional projects. This will improve the graduate’s exposure to different areas of civil engineering in the field.
with the collaboration of Placement office is arranging internships for the students in the different organizations. Placement office is responsible to supports and maintains data related to internships of students.
