The School of Art, Design, & Architecture was established at NUST in September 2010. NUST ranks among the top 100 universities in Asia, excelling in diversified engineering and technology disciplines. Yet a very critical discipline of creating the built environment was missing.Thus, SADA was established, and the first batch of aspiring students began their Bachelors in Architecture degree in September 2010. SADA launched its second Programme of Bachelors in Industrial Design in 2013.
SADA is now in its 8th year and is continuously working towards establishing one of the most up-to-date and competitive schools of Architecture within the country. Since its inception, SADA students have been actively participating in multitude of university and inter-university competitions and have won honours for NUST.
