Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) is a multi-disciplinary national organization engaged in:
(i) development of nuclear power and fuel cycle facilities,
(ii) research and development related to nuclear power and applications of radioisotopes in agriculture, medicine and industry,
(iii) production of special materials and chemicals,
(iv) design and fabrication of sophisticated components and complete units,
(v) provision of highly specialized technical services, and (vi) education and training of scientists, engineers,
medical doctors and technical staff in specific technical areas of interest.
To fulfil the manpower requirements of the wide variety of institutes, centres, projects and plants under PAEC, it requires outstanding engineers, scientists and medical doctors who are keen to enhance their technical knowledge even further by pursuing MS and MPhil programs in their relevant fields at Pakistan Institute of Engineering and Applied Sciences, (PIEAS) Nilore, Islamabad and achieve a level of excellence in their subsequent professional careers.
2. INTRODUCTION TO PIEAS
Pakistan Institute of Engineering and Applied Sciences (PIEAS) is a multifaceted educational institution with academic and training programs being conducted at the highest level in a broad spectrum of disciplines. The breadth of its course offerings is a reflection of the complexity and diversity of the programs of Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC), for which PIEAS has been the major human resource development centre since1967.
PIEAS has been conducting postgraduate degree and certificate programs for scientists, engineers, medical doctors and technicians over the last 40 years. The educational infrastructure that has been created for this purpose is now so extensive that, besides nuclear technology, the institution can pass on to the youth of the nation, the experience in a wide range of specialized fields such as information technology, nuclear medicine,medical physics, materials engineering, process engineering, systems engineering and laser technology. Postgraduate academic programs at PIEAS also involve R&D works, which frequently are published in international and national journals, conference proceedings and technical reports.
