The idea of National University of Technology NUTECH was born in early 2015 on the basis of the interactions with the national industry in the context of Pakistan’s economic growth and the consequent realization that the availability of well-trained high-quality human resources in applied science, engineering, technologies and engineering skills can offset our over-reliance and reliance on imported technologies for much-needed industrial growth. The first talks focused on improving the quality of applied education in Pakistan.
Consensus developed that a technology-oriented university was needed to educate Pakistani youth as future industry leaders of character through higher education in applied sciences, engineering, technologies and engineering skills for creation, developing and implementing technologies through innovations and in the process merging a coherent science, engineering, technologies and skills framework for industry and the country. The job was assigned to Lieutenant General (Retd) Khalid Asghar, a visionary and avid proponent of creating and developing indigenous technologies for industry and bringing quality improvements to the industrial skill levels of the country’s youth.
General Khalid’s personal musings turned into discussions that slowly reached the higher levels of government. With CPEC promising an economic revolution in the country, the idea of National University of Technology NUTECH, a vision focused on creation, development, implementation, promotion of emerging technologies and technical skills to increase national self-reliance, was not easy to reject. The HEC and MoST bought the idea, but the main responsibility for carrying out the vision remained with General Khalid, whom he took NUTECH to heart and turned into “My-NUTECH”.
