PAF-IAST is the only smart campus in Pakistan with blanket Wi-Fi coverage and smart classroom solutions for its classrooms and lecture theatres. These smart facilities offer the most advanced Interactive Digital Board, AI-enabled Speaker’s tracking camera, Lecture Recorder, along with other ancillary equipment.
Besides jogging tracks, two large grounds are reserved for cricket and football. Apart from the indoor game facilities at each Academic block, badminton, volleyball courts also have been made available.
Fully furnished shared accommodation is available for resident students. Boarding facilities are exclusively meant for students hailing from remote cities. Boarding facilities include comfortable rooms, fully functional dining halls, anteroom, Wi-Fi facility, indoor games, vending machines and laundry.
The campus has a high standard library, well provided with course textbooks along, reference books, and a good number of necessary research journals for each area of specialization. The library complex also comprises a few cubicles with smart boards installed for research group discussions and presentations.
PAF-IAST Campus offers ample ancillary services to ensure a conducive academic and working environment for all. These facilities include automated vending machines to readily provide students at fair price snacks, beverages, essential commodities 24/7, especially during short breaks without having them rush to the cafeteria now and then. Considering the needs of students, faculty, and staff, multiple vending machines are being installed at various places across the campus. Gradually, these machines will be made compatible for integration with Smart Campus One Card Solution which PAF-IAST plans to deploy in the days ahead to promote cashless campus culture.
The students will learn basic techniques of chemistry. The students will become familiar with basic skills, techniques and apparatus. The experiments related to spectroscopy, chromatography, organic chemical reactions, salt analysis, elemental analysis and catalysis will be demonstrated and conducted.
The analytical and physical chemistry lab offers students an introduction to physical and analytical chemistry techniques. The application of principles learned in class is reinforced by performing experiments in the lab. The students will be enlightened and educated to a broad range of basic analytical and other techniques used in chemistry and chemical engineering.
Equipment List:Equipment List:
In chemical industries, various operations are assisted with heat addition and rejection by using a variety of heat exchangers and reactors whose performance is highly affected through heat transfer. Therefore, the heat transfer lab is designed to familiarize the students with the various modes of heat transfer by applying its fundamentals through equipment.
In fluid mechanics lab, fluids and their flow behaviors are studied and observed. Pressure variations are calculated through gauges for compressible fluids when they flow through convergent-divergent nozzles. Various theoretical demonstrations of different laws of fluid mechanics are checked through lab equipment.
In the thermodynamics lab, equipment is related to the basic laws and applications of thermodynamics like boiler, refrigeration unit, Joule-Thomson apparatus, and Boyle`s law apparatus. This lab not only allows students to have a thorough understanding of these principles but also develops the basic requirement of a chemical engineer, i.e., to cope with the wide variety of problems such as calculation of heat and work requirement of physical and chemical processes.
This laboratory supports basic courses in machine tools and machining at the undergraduate level. The experiments to be performed in the laboratory are designed in such a way as to reinforce understanding of the basic principles and practical skills needed by students to visualize various phenomena encountered in different applications. The questions provided at the end of each experiment reinforce the students’ understanding, besides preparing them for viva-voce exams.
Chemical process technology lab provides hands-on experience for industrial/ semi-industrial equipment. CPT lab is mainly focused on process and plant design, scale-up, etc. The students will utilize diverse scientific concepts from different subjects in one assignment/project, for instance, analytical chemistry, thermodynamics, heat and mass balances, unit operations, kinetics, process control, uncertainty calculations, sampling techniques, safety, and environmental aspects.
The lab facility helps to design, simulate, and optimize different chemical engineering processes. ANSYS Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Software used to predict the impact of fluid flows under different conditions during operations. HyperChem is also used for building new molecules, predicting their molecular mechanics and dynamics. ASPEN Engineering Suite (AES) is extensively used for designing Chemical Process Industries, optimization of existing and new process industries, economic evaluations, and feasibility studies of process industries. There are 50 workstations at the simulation laboratory.
Electrical Engineering Lab aims to provide basic knowledge of electrical equipment and skills to undergraduate students through various experiments. This lab is focused on the fundamentals of circuit analysis, voltage, current, sources, and Ohm’s law to resolve complex electric circuits. Also gives the
PAF-IAST PROSPECTUS 2020 43 solutions for resistive circuits followed by complex elements, e.g., capacitors, inductors and operational amplifiers, circuits with DC sources, and circuits with sinusoidal sources
