This pioneering, state-of-the-art hospital located in the heart of the Punjab was founded by Imran Khan, one of Pakistan's most illustrious cricketers. As a charitable institute, it is funded predominantly from the donations of friends and well-wishers from around the country and across the world.
Today, NUST is the dynamic face of higher education in Pakistan. Our newly built technology-smart campus in Islamabad nestles not only with some premier educational institutes and research centres but also enjoys the close vicinity of the capital’s industrial sector. More than an exodus to the dream campus (H-12), the relocation of some NUST Schools in the serene setting of the federal metropolis is a giant leap for the University to vie for a prominent place in the unfolding arena of higher education.
