I remember sitting in the lonely bus station almost three years from now. I stared anxiously at my phone screen while I reloaded the IUT admission results page every single minute. I could feel my heart pounding against my chest. I was nervous because getting into IUT meant a great deal to me. And here I am today in my 3rd undergraduate year in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Yes! My dream did see reality. Being among the best Engineering universities in the country, IUT stands out as an ideal platform where students can pursue their passionate subject. Other than the tag of academic excellence which this University holds, it is immensely popular for its wonderful campus and marvelous architectural design. Anyone visiting IUT is bound to be mesmerized by the beauty of the structures in red brick, thus commonly hailed as ‘Red Heaven’ and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of it.
IUT is different from other universities because of its cultural diversity and also for its politically neutral environment. Here students are given their freedom to expand their thoughts and minds and to curve their imagination which are essential elements for a creative individual. The soothing environment throughout IUT borders provide a serene atmosphere for the resident students. Students from different OIC countries are given the opportunity to mingle and to get to know more about different cultures and make connections overseas.
The campus life is as colorful as it can get. Every single moment here is like a newer addition to your memory, every single day is a like a new adventure. A large football field overlooking the entrance of IUT gate strikes an idea of the scope for sports here. Throughout the year there are several tournaments organized both by IUT and the students, making it a heaven for those who love sports. Lawn tennis, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, futsal, table tennis are among the popular sports that the students participate in. However IUT does have a compact academic schedule with extensive classes and lab works which ought to put quite a significant amount of strain on anyone but these activities help to enlighten the mood and make hall life exciting.
Hey everyone! My name is Baguma Asuman from Uganda and I am currently working with Islamic university in Uganda, and would like to share my experience at IUT. IUT is the most remarkable university to study engineering from.
The quality of life and the vast professional and academic activity attract a great number of studies. Personally, in the context of my studies, I had the opportunity to gain substantial professional experience in my area of interest which is Computer science and engineering.
It has the current technological equipment’s and facilities within the university to support your studying, we had educational trips, seminars and conferences. IUT offers an ideal multicultural environment. Socializing with international studentsfrom 57 countries through different activities including games and sports was quite an amazing experience. I also expanded my social network by joining several student societies like debating society(IUTDS) which helped me interact with most students who were and still are a family to me from both IUT and other universities in Bangladesh..
The university has a very efficient administration structure that goes beyond the enrolment procedure. The competent staff were also very helpful with issues to do with official documents, such as the residence permit and other procedural issues. Well in advance of my arrival they had provided me with practical information and guidance, including lists of student residences.
Upon arrival, we were welcomed and properly guided through well-organized orientation days, informative sessions, as well as language-advancing courses. Not to leave out the food was amazing, breakfast, lunch, dinner were all served on time. The International Student Body in IUT is quite large with students from various countries all around the globe. This helped me immensely to feel at home and also spared me the unavoidable cultural shock. Time in IUT flies by in a jiffy. There is so much to do that boredom becomes a fantasy.
All in all IUT has been tremendous in shaping me, not only as a professional also, as an ideal human being. It taught me time management, responsibility and most importantly living all on my own when I am thousands of miles away from home!
