The muscle of NUST’s intellectual capital and research infrastructure has brought us yet another momentous honour – NUST now stands aloft with its intellectual property soaring high in numbers with 501 patents filed and 109 awarded – we are proudly the first and only university in Pakistan to cross the 500 + 100 patents mark!
NUST also leads the transfer of university R&D to industry, virtually joining the league of 4th generation HEIs the world over. Since 2018, NUST has transferred 5 technologies with 12 Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) to industries in domains including Health, Telecommunication, Manufacturing, etc.
Every day, our renowned faculty and researchers are unlocking new discoveries and creating new inventions that translate into new products and services – at the university level, this brings revenue and recognition – at the national level it contributes to crucial objectives like import substitution, upgrading indigenous manufacturing, capacity building, provision of products to Pakistani consumers at lower prices, export enhancement, and improvement in the country’s innovation index.
