NESTC will emerge as a world-class centre of excellence in conducting scientific & applied research in critical and futuristic technologies related to defence & security.

Objective of NESTEC is to undertake and facilitate multidisciplinary directed basic and applied research in the identified research verticals:
a) Management of Agro Bio-resources
b) Environment & Waste Management
c) Post-harvest management
d) Advanced Electromagnetics and high frequency electronics design system
e) MEMS based sensor design for specific application

NESTC will collaborate with the academic researchers &faculties, incubation center at MZU and other institutes in the country, industries and DRDO laboratories and other scientific/industrial research laboratories for creating new knowledge and translating them into cutting-edge technologies for defence.
