Established more than a decade ago the GIK Institute has, by the grace of Almighty God, risen like a shining star on the academic horizon of Pakistan and won national and international recognition for its high standard of teaching, quality of research and competent faculty. The alumni of the institute are holding high the falg of the institute and are serving in responsible positions in different countries and continents of the world. The Institute has been shaped into a center of excellence in engineering education and research.

As I now look back at the saga of its brilliant success, my thoughts go back to late Ghulam Ishaq Khan, the founder of the Institute. The Institue is a living tribute to his sagacious and inspiring leadership in its formative phase. I am sure that future generations will always pay rich tribute to him for creating this seat of learning which bears his name.

Mr.Farid Rahman
President SOPREST
