“Empowering Tomorrow’s Innovators: TUIT’s Journey with KOICA in Business IT and Living Labs”

The Tashkent University of Information Technologies, named after Muhammad al-Khorezmi, is embarking on an exciting journey with the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), and the focal point is the groundbreaking “Business IT” project. This initiative includes a grant program for master’s and PhD degrees and is carried out in collaboration with South Korea’s Kukmin University. It’s more than an educational partnership; it’s a commitment to nurturing IT talent and fostering the next generation of innovators in Uzbekistan.

Recently, on July 11, the university held interviews with candidates eager to participate in these grant programs. This event underscored the dedication to providing educational opportunities that will enrich the knowledge base and drive innovation in Uzbekistan’s dynamic IT sector.

But that’s not all. TUIT is also at the forefront of pioneering “Living Labs” and three other significant projects supported by KOICA. A seminar held at the university shed light on the significance of these initiatives. The event brought together key figures, including Ms. Park Sunjin, the Director of the representative office of KOICA in Uzbekistan, leaders from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, IT Park, and the university itself. Not to forget the project managers and representatives from South Korean partner organizations. This gathering highlighted the robust international cooperation aimed at elevating the IT and startup ecosystems in Uzbekistan.

One of these flagship projects is the “Implementation and Expansion of the Integrated Educational Information System,” valued at $3 million. Set to run from 2018 to 2021, this project will introduce an integrated educational information system in the main building and the Samarkand branch of TUIT. Its goal is to not only enhance the quality of the education system but also to elevate the efficiency of educational practices. This project is a testament to the dedication of the university and its partners in fostering academic excellence, promoting IT innovation, and ensuring a brighter educational future for the students of Uzbekistan.

TUIT’s collaboration with KOICA and the ambitious “Business IT” project demonstrate the commitment to creating Living Labs, fostering innovation, and positioning Uzbekistan as a hub for IT excellence. It’s a journey toward empowering tomorrow’s innovators and driving sustainable development in the country.


“Smart Cities Redefined: CRN-Powered IoT for Energy-Efficient Connectivity”

In the years 2021-2022, Mr. Shakhobiddinov A.Sh. is at the helm of an innovative project, focusing on the development of Cognitive Radio Network (CRN)-based smart city systems with Internet of Things (IoT) support. These systems mark a significant step forward in the realm of urban innovation, emphasizing energy-efficient communication and streamlined data flow.

The core of this initiative revolves around creating “smart cities” that are not only technologically advanced but also energy-conscious. By leveraging CRN technology and integrating IoT support, the project aims to optimize communication and data exchange within urban environments, leading to enhanced efficiency and sustainability.

This endeavor resonates strongly with Sustainable Development Goal 11, “Sustainable Cities and Communities.” It aligns with the mission of making cities more intelligent, inclusive, and environmentally responsible. By prioritizing energy-efficient communication, the project contributes to the creation of urban spaces that are not just connected but also greener, offering a higher quality of life for residents.

In essence, this project is a testament to the power of technology in shaping our urban future. By bringing together CRN-based smart city systems and IoT, it is paving the way for cities that are not only “smart” but also “green.” It envisions a world where urban living is synonymous with sustainability and innovation.

Development of software and hardware for a water resource monitoring based on IoT concept

In the years 2022-2023, Mr. Mahmudjanov S. is spearheading an innovative project dedicated to the development of software and hardware solutions for water resource monitoring. Embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) concept, this initiative represents a pivotal step forward in the sustainable management of water resources.

At its core, this project envisions a future where water resources are managed efficiently, ensuring access to clean and safe water for communities while promoting responsible environmental stewardship. By combining cutting-edge software and hardware, it enables real-time monitoring of water resources, making data-driven decision-making a reality.

Harnessing IoT technology for water resource monitoring, the project contributes to the global effort to provide universal access to clean water and improve water quality. Additionally, it supports other SDGs related to sustainable environmental practices and resilient infrastructure.

Ultimately, the project seeks to redefine the way we manage and safeguard our precious water resources. It exemplifies how technology can be harnessed for the greater good, ensuring that clean and safe water is accessible to all, while simultaneously protecting the environment for future generations.
