International Workshop on Radiation Biotechnology and Applied Radioisotope Science
PIEAS was founded in 1967 as Reactor School in response to increasing manpower demand of PAEC. The institute gained university status in 2000 and its name was changed to “Pakistan Institute of Engineering and Applied Sciences (PIEAS)”. PIEAS has been ranked as No. 1 engineering university of Pakistan in the QS Asian Rankings 2014, 2015 and 2019.
