NUST was established in 1991 by merging military and civil educational resources. After its development, existing military schools and colleges became constituent colleges of NUST. The first college to be affiliated with NUST was MCS in 1991. In 1993, the university was granted a charter and CEME and MCE became part of the university. In December 1994 and November 1995, CAE and PNEC became constituents of NUST respectively. All the constituent colleges were upgraded and MS programs were started at CAE in September 1997. In 1998, MS programs were started at PNEC and in the same year, Bachelor of Dental Surgery was started at AMC. In 1999, CEME and CAE attained ISO 9001 Certification, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (SEECS) was launched in Islamabad and NUST Business School (NBS, formerly known as NIMS) was established. School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (SMME) offers degrees in Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering and is one of the most competitive engineering schools of Pakistan.As of 2016, NUST has over 15,000 full-time students enrolled, over 20 departments with over 1,280 academic faculty staff. It is ranked by QS World Ranking’s as among the leading 50 universities under the age of 50 and is ranked by QS as among top 4000 universities in the world. It is the number 1 ranked university in Pakistan according to QS World ranking 2021. It is also ranked by QS as among top 300 in world in Electrical Engineering  and top 500 in Business Studies and Mathematics. While Times Higher Education Ranking’s rank’s NUST as among the top 100 universities from BRICS and Emerging Economies, as among top 120 in Asia and among top 250 globally in the field of Electrical Engineering. In 2016, it was also ranked as among the next 50 leading young universities globally by Time’s. NUST is a member of Association of Commonwealth Universities, United Nations Academic Impact and Talloires Network.
