In today’s hypercompetitive world, only those countries, will survive and prosper, which have transformed themselves into high-tech and knowledge based economies. This would require countries to encourage extensive use of information and communication technology along with production and dissemination of knowledge. To promote such a culture, high quality academic institutions would be the need of the hour.

Dr. Zafar Iqbal Qureshi Chairman Board of Governors NIU which is chartered by the Punjab Government and recognized by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan has been recently launched to achieve the objectives outlined above. The university is committed to provide education of international standards in every sphere of its activity.

While professionalism, on one end, will help our graduates to pursue careers that will ensure fast growth and on the other end, social responsibility will engender in them the spirit to help the needy. In this sense NIU would be uniquely placed to not only love but also to transform their motherland into a peace loving, tolerant and prosperous country.
