The mission statement of NUST School of Natural Sciences (SNS) is to produce international quality human resources in Mathematics, and conduct international quality research in this field. This has been started in Mathematics at the PhD level. In the next phase Theoretical Physics will be started at the Ph.D. level, then in Phase-III, Mathematics at the undergraduate level to provide high quality of undergraduate for MPhil and PhD programs and experimental Physics at both levels still later, when labs have been developed.
The National University of Sciences and Technology enjoys a very good reputation among the engineering universities of the country and has been declared as the best engineering university of the country and 20th in Asia.
In the modern world one cannot think of any significant progress in research and development in engineering fields without having a strong base in Mathematics. In the developed countries, the role of Mathematics in the solution of industrial and financial problems is increasing every day. In our country, although some universities have reasonably strong mathematics department, unfortunately their involvement in problems related to the industrial world is almost missing. NUST, having a strong engineering base through its various centers of excellence, hopes to bridge this gap through SNS.
