The School of Science and Technology (SST) at the University of Management and Technology (UMT) aims to generate a continuous stream of new scientific and technical knowledge to attract young talented students, and transform them into leaders of tomorrow’s technology organization. In order to fulfill its mission, the school strives to create a culture that attracts, develops and retain the best scientific and technical minds available. The School of Science and Technology encourages faculty members and students to undertake research and development and engage in collaborative work with industry. This provides them insight into the real world problems. SST graduates may work in an international environment. Therefore, class instruction and interaction between students and faculty members is conducted in English to ensure that graduate possess written and spoken fluency in English. This is accomplished foremost in the required laboratories, term reports, senior design projects and internships.
