As many as 114 secondary school and intermediate students from different cities and towns across the country attended the Summer School. Apart from offering exclusively designed curricular and co-curricular activities, the School afforded students a chance to not only experience life at NUST but also learn about their future educational and career prospects by interacting with NUST students and faculty in a plethora of fields.
