Within three decades of its inception, NUST has achieved important milestones and gained immense significance as an institution of higher education in Pakistan. It produces professionals and researchers of high caliber, capable of developing indigenous technologies to meet the growing demands of the 21st century. It is envisioned to grow as a center of excellence for the country’s scientific and technological progress. An outstanding feature of the university is that while maintaining traditional values of excellence in teaching and research, it challenges conventional practices and creates new ways of developing and delivering courses, pertaining to emerging and cutting-edge disciplines on most modern lines.
