A total of 777 courses on sustainability are offered in NUST such as: - Sustainable Design - Material and Construction - Transportation Engineering - Solar Thermal Power Systems - Energy and Climate Change - Environmental Science for Sustainable Development - Cleaner Production Techniques - Ecological Management - Solid and Hazardous Waste Management - Wastewater Treatment and Design - Environmental Health and Safety For facilitating NUST valuable students in their projects, appreciable funds are provided by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan and other local foundations and Non-Government Organisations such as National Cleaner Production Centre (NCPC), World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) and WaterAid Pakistan (WAP). Out of all the funding provided, more than 30% are accounted for projects on sustainability. Along with funding, partnerships with industries, public sector bodies, and social sectors help to align SDGs implementation strategies across national levels. For instance, a project funded by Higher Education Commission, was initiated in NUST National Institute of Transportation (NIT) named as “Scenario based Planning Support System for the Development and Evaluation of peri-urban plans.” “C-CARGO”, another project, by a newly established research group at NUST Institute of Environmental Sciences & Engineering (IESE) aims to achieve the goal of mitigation and adaptation to climate change impacts and air quality issues. This research group will play a vital role in exploring the atmospheric composition over Pakistan, in revisiting the existing air quality management procedures, and in developing climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies in Pakistan.
