The project was initiated on the basis of the active development of relations between the two countries in 2017 and the implementation began in 2018 with successful continuation despite the COVID-19 situation.
As part of this project, a Master plan and system design was created, a server room and multimedia rooms for the system were equipped, and as a result, Learning Management System (LMS), Student Information System (SIS) and a university portal have been established.
Ms. Sunjin Park, Director of the KOICA Uzbekistan Office, noted that “At the time of the significance of online education, we hope that the system and portal designed mainly for professors, university faculty and students, will be actively used. I hope that they will also serve as an exemplary model on the path of digitalization not only for TUIT branches, but for other universities as well".

The system is currently undergoing an experimental test, and online registration for regular courses is scheduled for the fall semester in 2021. The project management organization will continue providing technical support and training for subsequent management over the coming years so that the system can be operated consistently under the leadership of the university.
