Establishment of Aerial Robotics Research Lab


The Executive Committee in its 65th meeting held on 20th March 2019 approved the proposal for “Establishment of Aerial Robotics Research Lab”.    Aerial Robotics Lab will provide a dynamic environment for faculty and students to expand their research, to attract talented students for the institute and to attract external research funding. Instead of modeling or developing robots, the proposed research lab will be dedicated to science education and research on software, autonomy and applications of available robots, especially programmable aerial robots .   This research lab will promote and develop: i. socially and ethically responsible scientists capable of contributing to solutions dependent on aerial robotics, e.g., precision agriculture, disaster management, smart irrigation, surveillance and data collection. ii. interaction and collaboration among faculty members and among faculty and students. iii. problem-solving skills in the context of robot and machine intelligence. iv. technical and analytical research skills with the help of experimental results. v. the enhancement of robotics related educational courses/programs. vi. collaboration with industries and research institutions to create educational and employment opportunities for students. vii. competitiveness for graduate programs, professional programs, and positions in the robotics industry around the globe.  Lab members (faculty and students) can: i. have access to core aerial robotic facilities and shared equipment. ii. have the opportunity to work in joint research activities and highly collaborative research environment. iii. be able to validate and showcase their robotics research findings . iv. be able to strengthen the depth and breadth of their robotics related research projects. v. participate in interdisciplinary research.  The institute will: i. be able to organize and lead a team capable of major contributions in the field of autonomy for aerial robotics. ii. be able to create local capacity in aerial robotics where prospective investment and focus may create a competitive advantage for the institute. iii. receive financial benefits from professional courses offered by and research grants attracted by the lab.  Externally Funded Facility Design Any future expansion and expenditure will come from external funding and other avenues that are already part of the long-term planning of the proposed lab. Three research proposals have already been submitted to different funding agencies under the long-term planning of the proposed lab. Two grant proposals are in advanced stage of preparation. Membership Membership will be granted to full-time faculty members of the GIK institute who have (or propose) an active research project, a desire to train students, a willingness to participate in grant writing, a commitment to publish their research, and a willingness to share and contribute to joint efforts in the pursuit of aerial robotics research and education. Any student of the GIK institute can be a member or participate in ongoing projects. FCS&E and the lab in-charge from FCS&E will oversee the operation and organization of the lab.  ...

GIK Institute Ranked 24th in the World on Quality Education Related to UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


  The Ghulam Ishaq Khan (GIK) Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology was ranked number 24 out of 457 universities across the world (top position amongst all Pakistani universities) on Quality Education[i] by Times Higher Education[ii] (THE) under the University Impact Ranking in relation to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The GIK Institute ranked 201–300 in the overall THE University Impact Ranking 2019[iii] worldwide and is amongst the top 3 universities in Pakistan on the same ranking.   Quality Education is one of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN). This SDG ensures inclusive and equitable quality education and promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all. For the past 25 years, the mission of the GIK Institute has been to impart quality education and develop leaders with the skills necessary to respond to socio-economic challenges. The collective efforts of its founders, management, faculty and alumni have proven fruitful since the Institute has outcompeted many renowned international universities.    A number of criteria[iv] were considered to measure GIK’s strength in providing quality education. The Times Higher Education evaluated the University’s commitment to inclusive education and focus on lifelong learning opportunities to people who are not directly members of the GIK. The Institute, indeed, engages in a number of educational outreach activities with the local community of Topi and offers free access to its library to the general public. It has also remained persistent in awarding scholarships to deserving students from low-income families, enabling many to become the first in their families to pursue higher education.   As a developing country with exponential growth in population, Pakistan faces the challenge of educating an ever-increasing number of youth. Instead of restricting access to its educational resources, GIK has created an environment that makes it easy for the public to learn from the professionals it employs and graduates it produces. The outlook of the Institute towards transferring scientific knowledge without discrimination appears to be in line with a recent report by the World Bank and Elsevier[v] (South Asia: Challenges and benefits of research collaboration in a diverse region) and the UN’s target to encourage more students to enroll in technical, engineering and scientific programmes in developing countries.   The GIK Institute endeavours to have a greater impact on its community in the years to come. Easy access to educational resources and applied research produced by GIK faculty and students is intended to help communities find simple solutions to complex social, environmental and economic problems.

Team Foxtrot All Set for IMechE UAS Challenge 2019


Team Foxtrot from Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute, Pakistan, is a part of IMechE GIK Chapter and was founded in September 2018 by a group of bright and talented students who won the Design Build Fly Competition 2018, conducted by Higher Education Commission. The team is managed solely by students, overlooking the aspects of manufacturing and design, as well as media engagement and management. On 16th June 2019, Team Foxtrot shall be participating in the IMechE UAS Challenge, which will be held in Llanbedr, Wales. This will be for the first time that a team from GIKI will be participating in this competition. IMechE UAS Challenge is a unique competition that challenges students around the world to design, build and fly an autonomous aircraft, which can drop off humanitarian aid packages to certain marked zones in the airfield. The challenge itself will present a hypothetical situation where the team has to drop payloads with precision to those areas that are inaccessible, owing to any infrastructure hindrance or natural disaster. Its focus is simple; to inspire the young minds to push the boundaries of design innovation and aircraft automation to a greater level. Wishing the Best of Luck to Team Foxtrot! ...
