Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology - GIKI is one of the premier institutes of higher learning in Pakistan.


The GIK Institute is a non-governmental, non-profit institute. Named after former President Ghulam Ishaq Khan, it is one of the best engineering universities in Pakistan. Ghulam Ishaq Khan wanted to establish an institute which would reduce Pakistan's dependence on foreign expertise and imported technology. The genesis of the Institute can be traced back to the early 1950's. The Institute was registered in June, 1988 by its parent body, namely, Society for the Promotion of Engineering Sciences and Technology in Pakistan (SOPREST). Ghulam Ishaq Khan, then the President of the country, was elected the president of the Society for life and Mr. H. U. Beg was appointed its honorary Executive Director. The ordinance of the Institute was promulgated by the Frontier Government in March 1993 and the first batch of students was inducted the same year in October.

Major founding donors include Benevolent Community Care, Infaq Foundation, Chiniot Anjuman-e-Islamia, Dawood Group of Industries, and the Government of the North-West Frontier Province which has donated land at Topi.
