WHY CHOOSE IIB AT CECOS

The Institute of Integrative Biosciences is a cross-disciplinary life sciences institution that offers world-class degree programs and undertakes cutting-edge research in different areas and at the interfaces of biological sciences. The IIB is a constituent institute of CECOS University of IT and Emerging Sciences, a leading player in engineering education for over 35 years.

WORLD CLASS FACILITIES

CECOS University is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and research, and developing leaders in many disciplines who make a difference globally.

  • International FocusWe provide quality education and training on the basis of international standards.

  • State of The Art Laboratory – Biology labs are very messy and need a lot of resources. You miss one little reagent and your lab session is incomplete. Our laboratories are unmatched in all aspects, anywhere you go!

  • Top Tier Faculty We believe that the word PhD itself is not enough. Great faculty members are those who are genuinely passionate about science and are remarkably able to motivate, inspire and train their students. That’s why our faculty are both!

If you are passionate about life sciences and wish to pursue your career in Biotechnology, Pharmacy or selected areas within Allied Health Sciences then join us

OUR VALUES

With our cutting-edge degree programs, IIB’s mission is to impart advanced knowledge and train graduates who are competent, professional, and prepared to enter the life-sciences industry. 

At the Institute of Integrative Biosciences our philosophy is rooted in providing a complete education and training that is at par with international standards while nurturing innovative and critical thinking in our students.

We aim to provide a healthy environment for our students that not only nurtures their creative potential but encourages stimulating discussions and independent academic research.

We believe that the word PhD itself is not enough. Great faculty members are those who are genuinely passionate about science and are remarkably able to motivate, inspire and train their students. That’s why our faculty are both!

Success Stories

Hosted at the Institute of Integrative Biosciences – CECOS University and funded by the Directorate of Science and Technology – KP Government, iGEM Peshawar is Pakistan’s first and only team to represent the country in Boston.

Headed by Dr. Faisal Khan, Director IIB, the 12 member 2016 team put Pakistan on the Synthetic Biology map by competing against 300+ teams from 40 countries and winning a Bronze medal at the iGEM World Championship for their project “Inspector NOCOLi” a bacterial biosensor for the detection of harmful gases in vehicle exhaust fumes.
