About NUST

NUST is ranked among the world’s top 400 universities and Asia’s top 100 universities. NUST is committed to play its part and contribute towards the mission of nation-building. The current visit has been planned as a follow up to the multi-tier strategy engagement strategy in the USA, reaching out to different communities; including businesses, corporate, and Pakistani Diasporas, to build awareness about NUST as Pakistan’s premier higher education institute (HEI), and to build partnerships.

The Cause

With 3.7 % acceptance rate; our classrooms educate the best minds of the nation. Nearly 500 of these students, out of 2,500 in each intake, are coming from the marginalized sector and can never even dream of a university degree.  Currently, 1387 such students are enrolled at NUST and receiving financial aid to pursue their degree. We want to connect with Pakistani Diaspora and encourage them to join our cause of nation building through donations, and ambassadorship.

If you are interested in learning more about NUST and its various initiatives for talented students please join us at the event dated above.
