Welcome To AUST

The African University of Science and Technology (AUST) is the first of the Nelson Mandela Institutions (NMIs). It was established in Abuja, Nigeria, in 2007, as a centre of excellence in science and technology with a focus on African development. Since its inception, the AUST has graduated five batches of  MSc students in five disciplines (computer science and engineering, pure and applied mathematics, theoretical physics, petroleum engineering, and materials science and engineering) and a batch of PhD students. The AUST is governed by the Boards of the NMI and AUST, and advised by an interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers that are members of the African Scientific Committee (ASC) and the International Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB).
