President's message on sustainable development at KUST

Komar University, since its inception, has been steadfastly dedicated to advancing sustainable development objectives, particularly focusing on specific goals implemented within its operations. Embracing sustainable practices within the institution comes with notable costs, particularly within the context of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI). However, driven by a firm commitment to enriching the quality of education and assuming a significant societal role, KUST has embarked on courageous initiatives aimed at fulfilling its obligations toward fostering a better future for its graduates and the wider community.

 

Renowned for its commitment to educational excellence, KUST devises robust annual plans aimed at imbuing the learning process with greater significance for students. Central to its educational approach is the integration of experiential learning methodologies, such as learning by doing, and the adoption of student-centered approaches. Additionally, the university distinguishes itself by providing a premier learning environment in the region, bolstered by state-of-the-art laboratories, virtual learning platforms, blended learning methodologies, and a cadre of esteemed international and local professionals across various disciplines. This dedication has firmly established KUST as a premier educational institution within Iraq and the Kurdistan Region.

 

Moreover, KUST actively engages with diverse communities, offering various forms of support, including financial aid for those in need, conducting fundraising campaigns, and organizing awareness initiatives addressing pertinent issues spanning health, environmental conservation, and the application of innovative technologies.

 

Furthermore, the university has significantly contributed to scientific research endeavors aligned with sustainable development goals. Its scholarly output, spanning areas such as water and solid waste management, as well as renewable energy applications, has garnered recognition in internationally esteemed journals. As such, KUST remains resolutely committed to its vision and mission, steadfastly working towards realizing all facets of sustainable development by the target year of 2030.
