The National Skills University Islamabad is the first public sector university in Pakistan established on the premises of fast job transformation challenges associated with the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This higher education institute differs from the conventional higher education institutes by paying more attention to inculcating job-ready skills among learners besides their cognitive development. Graduates of this university are expected to have ample knowledge of workplaces in their field of specializations due to its pedagogical practices focusing more on discipline-specific practical experience. This will involve both training in the university laboratories as well as working in the field with industrial collaborators of this institution through Co-op programs.

The main objective of establishing the first-ever National Skill University is to produce a substantial number of high-quality graduate and post-graduate technologists professional in a variety of current disciplines to meet the national demands. Its vision is to be a premier institution for skill-based technical education with a focus on excellence and economic empowerment of the youth.

NSU aspires to achieve excellence in technical skill-based education by:

-Offering innovative and demand-based skilling and re-skilling programs, certificates, diploma, and degree programs.

-Building partnerships with industry and businesses to ensure their engagement and participation in the emergence of NSU as a cutting-edge skill university.

-Focusing its programs on the demands of Pakistan's economy and industry and producing talent with employable technical skills.

-Leveraging relationships with all its stakeholders (government, students, faculty, community, industry, donors, and others).

-Facilitating accessibility of NSU to all the youth of the country through its campuses and affiliates.

-Deploying public funds prudently to ensure access to technical education for the needy youth and generating additional resources for the betterment of the university.

-Creating an enabling environment that facilitates the growth and expansion of the university.
