USPCASW, UU is generating cost-effective and sustainable solutions to Pakistan’s challenges related to water, while educating the next generation of scientists, engineers, and policy makers through innovative academic programs and empowering women scientists and researchers to actively participate in applied research to solve Pakistan’s contemporary problems.
