During the award ceremony, Professor Yusuf Abdullaev, the Rector of SIUT, took the stage and delivered a speech highlighting the positive dynamic of higher education development in Uzbekistan, emphasizing its role as a driving force behind the country’s “Third Renaissance.”

“The establishment of SIUT is a response to the demands of our time,” said Professor Abdullaev. “The fact that the university has been awarded the ‘Brand of the Year’ award just two and a half years after its founding demonstrates that we are on the right path – the path of shaping a new generation of world-class engineers for New Uzbekistan!”

Professor Abdullaev further emphasized that SIUT boasts over 30 foreign professors from 16 countries, providing students with unique opportunities to learn from global expertise and contribute to technological and scientific development in Uzbekistan.
