The Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology (GIKI) is one of Pakistan's leading centers for training engineering and technology personnel. Dr. A.Q. Khan led the development of the Institute and served as director, “hoping to mass produce a legion of metallurgists and engineers honed in the image of the benefactor.” The institute was founded to address Pakistan’s dependence on foreign expertise, and began awarding degrees in 1997. The GIKI offers degree programs at the BS, MS, and PhD levels in computer science, electronic engineering, engineering sciences, mechanical engineering, materials science, mathematics, physics, and humanities and management.

In 1998, the Clinton Administration sanctioned the GIKI for alleged unspecified involvement in nuclear or missile activities. Additionally, in 2003 a committee chaired by Lt.-Gen M. Akram Khan identified the GIKI as one of four prospective Pakistani universities for industry-university defence research collaboration.
