Department of Electrical Engineering







Welcome to Department of Electrical Engineering

Department of Electrical Engineering started as a research group called Computer & Control Systems Group (C&CSG), with the main objectives of establishing research activities and training in the areas of Computer Sciences and Control Systems Engineering. The group launched MS Systems Engineering program in 1988. After restructuring of PIEAS, formerly known as Center for Nuclear Studies (CNS), it was separately established as Electrical Engineering Department in 2000.


More than 300 scientists and engineers have graduated and currently 65 students are registered under M.S. Systems Engineering program. Ph.D. in Systems Engineering was started in 1999. Two students have been awarded Ph.D. degrees in Systems Engineering and 8 are currently pursuing their research leading to Ph.D. The first batch of BS Electrical Engineering students was inducted in Fall 2009 with specialization in Electronics. Specializations in Power and Computer Engineering will also be offered in the coming years.

PIEAS Vision Statement

 It is the vision of PIEAS to be recognized at the national and international level as an Institute of academic excellence with high moral and ethical values, providing synergy between scientific research and technological development for national security and socio-economic benefits, encouraging and fostering an environment of mutual respect and free exchange of thoughts, where lack of resources on part of deserving students is not an impediment to acquiring quality education.

PIEAS Mission Statement

PIEAS is committed to excellence in science and engineering education. We seek to impart education in fields which are essential for the technological development of Pakistan and, in particular, to play a pioneering role in fostering the establishment of educational programs in newly emerging technological fields in the country. We accord the highest priority to meeting the current and future trained manpower needs of PAEC and other technical organizations.

We aim to provide a learning environment that fully stimulates the students' intellectual capabilities and also nurtures their personal development as future technological leaders. We are committed to ensuring the highest quality in all our endeavours, encompassing teaching, research, skills and developmental activities through an effective overarching quality enhancement framework.
