The leadership at NUST is well aware that in today’s global environment, creativity and innovation are essential for solving societal problems and achieving economic competitiveness. Also, far more than cheap labour or natural resources, the future development of any country in the world depends upon intellectual capital. We at NUST realize that qualified Human Resource in the form of Scientists, Engineers, Doctors and Managers is one of the key factors affecting progress in Pakistan. Also an ever-increasing population and spiraling demands from the economy require creation of new knowledge and its transformation into new products and services which are fundamental to our economic growth. Hence NUST is determined not only to provide the requisite human resource but also to convert knowledge into practice, to inject knowledge based inputs into the country's economic and social growth by its flexible approach to education and research leading to innovative and entrepreneurial engines for development. Realizing this, Constituent Institutions of NUST, in their individual capacities, have been actively involved in collaborative research as well as creating new technologies. The I&C Dte has shortlisted few of the outcomes of such research and innovations as patents and marketable technologies.
