History of Institute of Space Technology

With the vision of fostering intellectual and economic vitality through teaching, research and outreach in the field of Space Sciences & Technology and with a view to improve quality of life Institute of Space Technology was established in 2002 with the support of National Space Agency. Institute of space technology came into being to keep pace with the advanced technology and progression in Research and development of modern era. In exploration and study of entire universe space science has been a vital thing in the near past.

Institute of Space Technology Degrees

Institute of Space Technology started offering degrees at undergraduate in the beginning. Aerospace Engineering and Communication systems were declared its core discipline and specialization of degrees were also started in both departments. In 2008 institute started an undergraduate degree program in the field of material science and engineering along with the graduate program in communication engineering. At the moment institute of space technology is offering various degrees in various undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate programs taught at IST are approved by Higher Education Commission (HEC) and accredited Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC).

IST Affiliations

Institute has many national and international linkages. Major collaborations of the institute are with Beihang University (BUAA), also Northern Polytechnic University (NPU), China and University of Surrey (UniS), UK to offer linked master’s programs in more than dozen areas. These collaborations help the management to work and excel according to their mission of providing outstanding quality education to diverse groups of national and international students.
