The University strongly believes that students should get involved in student life by joining MUT through students clubs. For a club to be recognized, its purpose must be consistent with the stated objectives and goals of the university and must be supervised by a full-time faculty member. There are several clubs sponsored by the university, which give the students the opportunity to complement their academic experience be exercising leadership, developing talents, programs and events, campus fairs, cultural programs, fieldtrips, and picnics.
Club members will sharpen their journalistic capabilities through their forthcoming contribution to the MUT Quarterly newsletter and their involvement in preparing the MUT Yearbook. Both of these activities require photographic skills, which students will continuously improve during their tenure in the club.
