Covid delayed student enrollment so that Semester 2 started in October and Semester 3 will begin in January. Before leaving for the year-end break, students enjoyed a sports day with awards and prizes.
Rabiul Islam reports that he is leading a continuous improvement program at OIST with monitoring of classroom activities and regular feedback from the students. During December, OIST faculty met with local high school teachers to recruit students for upcoming Semester 1 Civil Engineering and Computer Technology diploma programs. We expect an intake of about sixty “freshers.” Students earn a tuition reduction if they maintain a GPA of 3.0. They also receive a government bursary for good grades and high attendance. Due to the poverty of local families, we are still subsidizing OIST expenses for about $3000 CAD per month. We welcome your support.
