NUST campus

The campus of NUST is located in Islamabad. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. The university students have access to the library. It is an integral part of learning. Students come here for educational literature or to do their homework. The exchange of intercultural experience occupies a special place in training at NUST. The educational institution regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs and organizes various joint events.
