This department aims at producing graduates of the highest quality who can play a decisive role in public, private and non-profit institutions, not only within Pakistan but also around the world. The Department of Government and Public Policy made a debut in 2010 with the launching of a Bachelor of Public Administration programme. Coming to grips with the problems that infect Pakistan is indeed a tall order, but it must be noted that NUST has a history of establishing educational institutions par excellence. We are confident that the Department of Government and Public Policy will prove equal to the challenge.
The strength of our current faculty and their linkages in the public and private sector, expose our students to an array of ideas, experiences and thoughts from those who have worked in the highest echelons of government, as well as the private sector. We believe that bringing Pakistan’s best and the brightest, former and current, civil servants to interact with our students will not only help them gain an insight into the dynamics of Public Administration but also allow for a creation of a very valuable human resource. In future, the Department intends to launch many other programmes that will be as relevant to the cause of good governance and public policy formulation, its implementation and analysis as BS Public Administration is to the current times.
