PIEAS or PIEAS University is located in Nilore, which is around 25KMs from Islamabad. It is part of Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission and is run in the public sector. HEC ranks PIEAS as the best and top ranked Engineering University of Pakistan. This ranking off course does not tell whether its good in all fields of engineering or a particular one. However based on the research output and number of Phd faculty members it is rated as the best engineering university of Pakistan currently.

Medical (for doctors only for training in radiation therapy)
Physics and Mathematics.
There are a total of 90 faculty members at PIEAS and around 50% of them are PhDs (one of the reasons why it is ranked so high by HEC)
