Department Introduction

Institute of Professional Development will start an Institute Continuing Education Program (ICEP) at Karakoram international university Diamer Campus with an aim to be the area’s first provider of post-secondary, short-cycle education, giving young people and adults professional and vocational qualifications in a flexible learning format that improves employment and income generating opportunities.


Transforming ICT, Language, and Technical skills to youth of District Diamer for self-Empowerment and to generate skilled force to face future challenges and to cope with the upcoming smart world.


ICE is playing a role in developing and changing the Diamer region so that, the living standards of this area would improve and Diamer should be able to go side by side with the other parts of Gilgit-Baltistan. ICE is generating skilled labor for the future. In the Diamer region, most of the population does not get formal education (more than 70% of people are illiterate). While considering this scenario, our institution provides a platform for youth, especially for females, where they get technical and ICT skills. Furthermore, ICE will help the Diamer community (especially youth) to prepare themselves for future challenges with ICT, Language skills, and other technical skills. ICE will change the mindset of the Diamer community.

Furthermore, this will help people to utilize their brains in a productive way so that after becoming skilled they can serve for their community. As we know, Diamer is the gateway for CPEC and tourism. ICE is also empowering women by providing a learning platform where they get equal learning opportunities as men.

Goals and objectives

Diamer is one of the challenging areas of GB and we are struggling to make the community realize the importance of technological and technical skills for the betterment of the area and their own good. The main objective of the ICE is, equipping rural youth in different age groups with marketable skills and technology to take up vocations of self-employment.
