- In the world where uncertainty surrounds human mind it’s very eccentric to think 9 years ahead from now. We today live in a world where in order to get justice a common man has to oil the mustaches of those who guard justice, we live in world where in order to get things done we need to make under the table deals, we live in a world where it’s easier to change the black into white, where accountability, integrity, self consciousness, honesty and responsibility are foreign terms. But somewhere in the same world there are institutions, people who train many others the virtues of life. Institutions no matter professional or academic have the ability to nurture the black or the white. It depends on the institution. NUST, is a small yet beautiful part of the same treacherous world, where I learnt to stand against the odds, I learnt to resist the unjust, I am made to stand for my actions. I am made to protect and guard my identity as a Pakistani. Its NUST where I have learnt to accept diversity. In a place where I have learnt almost every good thing about life how can I be pessimistic about its future. Its future shall be far brighter than its present. I feel elated with pride when I think of 9 years from now.
We the students are the output of the hard work, devotion, and perseverance of highly trained faculty. Any university is known for the product it gives out. Today NUST produces the best engineers of the world, the young charismatic youth making and inventing things to make world a better place to live. However after 9 years, I can see through my lens NUST producing the cream of the legal fraternity, top class peace builders, renowned artists, impeccable writers, and what not. It is no exaggeration that in 2020 the business graduates will surpass the standards of LUMS, and IBA, exceptional architects, public administrators, journalists, engineers, scientists, and researchers shall graduate out of NUST. We are not taught by the toppers of the world but yet from people who believe in changing the world, they are firm and devoted and hence they become successful in producing the best. When the present reflects the future than how can anyone even think of a downfall.
Today NUST is amongst the top 300 universities of the world, but after 9 years the hundredths will turn into tenths, NUST will be amongst the top 50 universities of the world. Anyone who is the part of NUST weather it be the administrative staff or the students, or the clericals, everyone here is taught
Never give up trying until you get the best.
And the institution operates on the same philosophy. NUST strives for excellence.
NUST teaches its students something that does not fathom and that is integrity, honesty and hard work. And no matter how much material prosperity we gain, these lessons of life are eternal. NUST is and shall produce the best human beings and best professionals.
By 2020, I am hopeful we shall give the new generation a completely built campus, with different schools, labs, botanical gardens, and studio’s, CSD’S, and hostels.
NUST School at DaryaKhan is a significant example that NUST, believes in educating people for the survival of this country. And the institution has over the past years strived for better and better educational facilities. School at darayakhan is one such project of NUST and in coming years many such schools will be made to enhance the educational standards, it won’t be false to imagine that by 2020 NUST shall help increase the literacy rate in Pakistan.
2020, 9 years from now and 5 years after i graduate out of NUST but yet i believe that where ever i shall be then, i shall owe my successes and achievements to this institution. And those coming after me will enjoy a more technically advanced NUST. The future may be uncertain but it is not bleak or dark, it is vibrant and beautiful.
Good Luck Juniors!
