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 Sciences and Technology (NUST), Rawalpindi. The college conducts undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering disciplines – leading to the award Graduate and Postgraduate Degrees by the National University of Sciences and Technology.
The genesis of (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 was affiliated with the University of Karachi. In 1977, the affiliation of PNEC was transferred to NED University of Engineering and 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 engineers for the Pakistan Navy and NUST. To achieve this, it conducts degree courses in the disciplines of Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics and Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, and MS/PhD degree courses in the disciplines of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering.
Pakistan Army’s officers from EME Corps have done their BE engineering from this college from 1982 to 1988 era as during this time period Army’s EME College was shifting from Quetta to Rawalpindi.
Since 1987, civilian students have also been 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. It was the first college to gain ISO 9001:2000 certification in Asia.
