The present study concentrates on the analysis of magnetohydrodynamic boundary layer flow of Sisko fluid over continuously stretching cylinder. The viscous dissipation effect is assumed in heat equation. To modify the governing equations first boundary layer approximations are applied. After this simultaneous partial differential equations are converted into the ordinary differential equations by applying proper similarity transformations. To find the numerical solution of this system of ordinary differential equations shooting method is utilized. Graphs are plotted to figure out the characteristics of physical parameters on momentum and heat equations. The variations of all physical parameters on skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are displayed via figures and tables.
