The idea of NUTECH was born in early 2015 based on the interactions with national industry in the context of Pakistan’s economic growth. On 21st August 2017, a bill was passed by the National Assembly Standing Committee on Science and Technology of Pakistan to establish a technology university under The National University of Technology Bill, 2017. The bill was subsequently passed by the National Assembly on 20th November, 2017, then by the Senate Standing Committee on Science and Technology on 10th January, 2018 followed by the Senate on 26th January, 2018. Finally, the President’s assent was received on 22nd February, 2018. The University commenced its UG programs in fall 2018.
