Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) was established in July 2000 at Rawalpindi and Lahore for promoting engineering education in the country. Owing to the significance of telecom sector and its potential for phenomenal growth, the B.E (Telecom) was the first area to be ventured in. A team of experts and professional engineers from telecom sector got associated with Allama Iqbal Open University for the development of curriculum and various tiers of academic bodies of the university approved the syllabus.

We are also running Punjab Skill Development Program (PSDF) / National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC) programs since 2014.
For running technical education, laboratories play important role and for his purpose, IET has established twenty two state of the art labs.
While running B.E (Telecomm) program, it was also felt that large strength of skilled manpower (Diploma holders / Associate Engineers) was required to meet the requirement of industrial and economic growth of the country.
