NUST is a premier university of Pakistan, which to date has produced 38000+ fully groomed graduates, who are rendering excellent services across multiple sectors in as many as 61 countries. No matter which part of the world they are, these alumni remain connected with their alma mater and contribute to its development in any way possible. In order to institutionalise their activities both at the School and the University level, first-ever NAA elections for NUST Alumni Associations were held on June 15-16, 2020. Apart from the central NUST Alumni Association, 17 School/College-level constituents were formed as a result of these elections.
In his remarks, Rector NUST congratulated the newly elected NAA President, Dr Sohail Sarwar, Governing Board of the central association as well as constituent associations. Speaking about the importance the university accords to its alumni, he called upon the NAA to play an active role in the university’s development across the domains of academics, research, innovation, entrepreneurship, industry relations, etc.
The new President NAA, Dr Sohail Sarwar, is a graduate of NUST School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (SEECS), Class of 2009. In his first address as the President, Dr Sohail vowed to work for the good of the alumni and their alma mater.
