The NUST Emblem
The Book of Knowledge lights up the darkness, through the Vine of Wisdom which bears
the two moons and stars facing towards the East and the West, symbolising the diversity of
disciplines and the fruit of knowledge.

The Rising Sun brings change, hope and enlightenment. It emanates inspiration and
from the light of knowledge, four birds take wing from the nests of light, and spread out
to the four corners of the world, symbolising the quest for spiritual gratification through
knowledge and wisdom.

The NUST Blue is a colour that represents the future. It carries all the characteristics of the
colour blue, like dignity, grace, freshness, professionalism, prudence and resolve.
