CES started its maiden Post Graduate program from September 10th, 2012. Rector NUST Eng. Mohammad Asghar commemorated the occasion with a few words of welcome.
Welcome Message By Rector, NUST.
NUST launched the Center for Energy Systems (CES) early this year to provide a pivot to its
Institutions involved in energy sector programs and to support and consolidate the various activities/projects, which make good sense for scalable and sustainable operations with a view
to contribute to industry and national economy in times of energy crisis.
The Center should endeavor to create an ecosystem for addressing energy requirements by influencing Policy Makers, developing Technologies and Human Resource, and mobilizing Communities for energy conservation. The Center must incorporate existing institutes to this core mission.
Educational and research activities at the Center should engage energy companies and academic & Government organizations to associate with research groups and project teams at the National University of Sciences & Technology. Such partnerships will solve pressing front line research problems and engage in long term high risk research projects important to our energy future.
CES should promote interdisciplinary MS and PhD degrees programs in Energy Systems, Renewable Energy, Clean Coal Technologies, Thermal and Hydropower Engineering to cater for qualified human resource and quality research to deal with the imminent workforce crises in the energy fields. I hope you will be able to develop international collaborations and I assure you of full support for all such projects. I trust that the Centre will serve as an international knowledge harbinger to prop up the information exchange of energy ideas and technology developments.
