MUST launches IAESTE A.s.b.l.
The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Romanus Odhiambo, has officially launched the International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience, Association Sans but lucrative (IAESTE A.s.b.l) club and membership registration drive on Thursday 9th February, 2023.
The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience, Association Sans but lucrative, commonly known as IAESTE A.s.b.l, is a non-profit global organization with 80+ countries worldwide representing academic, industrial, and student interests. It serves over 3500 students, 3000+ employers and more than 1000 academic institutions through career-focused professional internships to students in engineering, sciences, and applied arts. The organization also aims at strengthening social and intercultural cohesion, enhancing international networking, and employer branding activities among others.
IAESTE Kenya became a member of IAESTE A.s.b.l on 24th January 2021, during the annual conference in Vienna, Austria. IAESTE Kenya offers paid internships abroad to Kenyan students and also receives international students who want to work in Kenya and also aims at providing and boosting deep intercultural experiences to students participating in the exchange program.
Commendable progress has been achieved by IAESTE MUST under the stewardship of the Coordinator, Cecilia Wanjau (Department of Agriculture) and Matron, Beatrice Sauline Nyakira (Department of Animal Science) such as the participation at the IAESTE annual conference held from 20th – 26th January 2023 where Meru University of Science and Technology (MUST) was able to get a student from Germany in an ICT project (Agriculture Technologies) who will be with us for a period of two (2) months and one student from MUST will go to Germany also for two months on a paid internship.
As a MUST student you will have numerous opportunities for personal development. All we require you to have is the initiative to continually evolve. We guide our students to realize and maximize their potential.
Ubuntu is our way of life. The MUST community is made up of diverse cultures and experiences brought together by the main aim to acquire quality education. These cultures are unified and embraced through positive human interaction.
Student-led clubs and societies fashion the creative and safe spaces for dialogue, debates, research, innovation, talent development, social movements and fun. This continues to cultivate the strong sense of belonging and unity enjoyed within the MUST community.
MUST students get to learn who society is and most importantly, their role in making our world a better place. Personal life skills are identified, learned and nurtured.
