Welcome to NUST Industrial Liaison Office (ILO).
Within almost two decades, NUST
has achieved important milestones and gained immense significance as an
institution of higher education in Pakistan. The University produces
professionals and researchers of very high caliber, capable of developing
indigenous technologies to meet the growing demand of the 21st
century. For a developing country like Pakistan, there is a dire need that
knowledge inputs are made to facilitate industrial growth. Recognizing this an
Industrial Liaison Office (ILO) was created by NUST

linkages to make NUST graduates their premium choice and identifies specific
industry partners for the ongoing research at NUST. It gauges industry needs
and processes match making with NUST Institutions to solve industrial problems.
This office has direct bearing on commercialization activities. It currently
looks after two areas. These are:
Industrial Relations (IR)
The role of IR is to build
and maintain strong Academia Industry Linkage with the focus on promoting and
making NUST graduates the premium choice for the employers. IR is already
fostering professional networks; therefore it also supports TTO to leverage
these contacts in finding the potential industrial partners for the research/ technologies

Due to the economic slump coupled with
today’s constantly evolving environment, the process of talent acquisition has
become even more critical. Leading organizations know that human resource is
the single most important driver behind exceptional business performance.
With so much competition and such
limited time, the need to recruit the best resources with the least amount of
time and effort has become a necessity. To address all Industry needs including
but not limited to recruitment of quality human resource, NUST created the
Industrial Liaison Office (ILO).
It is the ILO's mission to provide all prospective
employers with a talented pool of human resource from NUST in the least amount
of time. We are determined to facilitate
all employers through all possible means and resources. With the aim of making NUST graduates the
preferred choice for all recruiters, the ILO takes feedback from Industry
members on a regular basis and uses the feedback to bring about the necessary
In line with this mission, the ILO has
adopted several key initiatives in its work cycle. These include:
Employer Sessions are information
sessions that gives you, the employer, the chance to discuss career
opportunities with interested and qualified candidates in a session that is
devoted to your organization.
Conferences and Forum
To bridge the ever present gap between
the Industry and Academia, NUST hosts annual conferences and forums with the
aim to provide a day of learning and sharing for both the Industry and members
of the University.
Networking nights bring together
students with potential employers for informal productive discussions. When
your company representatives participate in NUST Networking Nights, they’ll be
able to network with substantial number of students without spending too much
time and efforts in preparing for formal presentations.
Industry members are invited for
Industry Talk Series which take place all year round. These series are aimed at
giving NUST students a sneak peak at what life might be after graduation and
how to best prepare for a professional life.
Increased competition has given rise
to the need for students to work harder, smarter and to adapt quicker to
changes than ever before. Employers now have higher expectations from all
current and future employees. Understanding the importance of soft skills, the ILO
continuously conducts Student Development Workshops that help students polish
their skills and become all-rounders.
The ILO facilitates any recruiting
partner who wishes to conduct recruitment activities. These drives give employers
the opportunity to conduct tests, interviews, group discussions, company presentation
etc. Recruitment drives are organized
upon request keeping in mind student availability.
We look forward to working with you!
We have been recruiting from NUST for 2 years now and
continue to enjoy the wealth of talent we see from the University.
