DID YOU KNOW?
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
~ Robert Frost
I vividly remember summer of 1998 when I had GIK Institute prospectus in my hands. I was young and hungry, and as I turned the pages, my mind kept looking for something that stood out – that stood apart. And I found exactly that. The Engineering Sciences program with its unique content and vision of producing future-ready multi-disciplinary engineers fascinated me from the start and I took the decision of making it my first choice. I have never looked back. Learning what I learned in Engineering Sciences provided me with a flexibility that has been the major strength of my career. I have no doubt that the future is even more inter-disciplinary. Photonics, as they say, is the electronics of the 21st century. Light, in particular laser, has become the workhorse and the instrument of choice both in research and industry, covering engineering applications from communications to instrumentation. Importance of Semiconductors and Microelectronics continues to grow and the introduction of software-based design of devices as the new “fabless” industry is bringing new opportunities to Pakistan. Modeling and Simulation are now the key design and decision-making tools being used across the world. It is satisfying to see that our alumni have gone on to become successful engineers, managers, researchers, and academicians, working in fields such as medical imaging, optical communications, instrumentation, sensors, control, chip design, operations management, data science, and software solutions. My dear prospective student, as you now look through various academic programs, young and hungry, I invite you to choose something that stands out.

We offer a 4-year engineering degree program leading to Bachelor of Science in Engineering Sciences which encompasses some of the most modern fields of engineering, split into two specialization options (streams). The curriculum has considerable overlap with Electronics Engineering and Computer Engineering with additional specialization courses.
We also offer MS and PhD degree programs in a number of exciting fields (Click Here for Details):
Engineering Sciences (ES) is a PEC-accredited Multidisciplinary Engineering Program that offers you the opportunity to prepare yourself for some of the most modern fields of engineering including Data Analytics, Smart Devices, Modern Instrumentation, and Communication Technologies.
First two years of the program are very similar to common engineering programs, while from the third year, students can choose courses according to their target career.
In short, ES is a multidisciplinary engineering program with a flexible career path suited for those who think outside the box and want to gauge their interests before committing to a particular direction.
Infographic below gives a quick overview of the curriculum, specialization options, and resulting career paths.
The key distinguishing feature of the ES program is that it allows students to choose their direction after two years. By joining the ES program, you get the opportunity to learn basic sciences, engineering, and computing common to most modern engineering programs in the first two years. Then, having carefully gauged your aptitude and interests, you can choose either to go for the hardware (sensors, systems) of modern tech, or its brain (algorithms, AI).
So, for example, if you are interested in the hardware and sensors of Smart Cars or Drones you can choose Photonics and Microelectronics, while if you are interested in writing the artificial intelligence-based algorithms for Smart Cars and Drones you may choose Simulation and Machine Learning. The good thing is that you do not have to make this choice in the first year and can see how your interest develops in the first two years before you choose.
No. While a good proportion of GIKI graduates goes for higher studies, most of the graduates are currently working in industry. This is true for Engineering Sciences as well.
ES graduates are typically able to avail career opportunities in
Over the last twenty years, the Engineering Sciences program has produced 600+ graduates now successfully contributing to a variety of industrial, research, business, and academic ventures. Infographic below shows names of organisations where ES graduates are currently working. Recent survey shows that 52% of ES graduates are currently working abroad while the rest are working in Pakistan.

The concept of Engineering Sciences is built around allowing flexibility in curriculum design and updating according to newly emerging fields of engineering. Such new fields typically do not fit within strict conventional boundaries and can be well covered under the umbrella of Engineering Sciences as interdisciplinary engineering. A similar model is available in many Western universities.
