The Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) recently issued a new regulation allowing ICS students, who have studied Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science, to apply for admission to any engineering program offered in the country.

However, there is a requirement for these students to pass Chemistry as a remedial subject in their first semester after being admitted to the program.

Candidates who have finished their ICS education, including Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science, are now entitled to apply for admission to all Engineering programs, per PEC rule No. PEC/EAD/46-VCCM/Regulations/2003, dated 30th March 2023.
