The CUIB team was made up of students from the School of Engineering, School of Business, Information Technology, Agriculture and Natural Resources, who presented on "Ecosystem of Plastic Recycling" that is providing solutions that can help reduce the rate of pollution in our communities.
Earlier this year two teams of students from CUIB won USD 2000 from the FOWLER global initiative challenge that brought together over 20 top universities across the globe.
CUIB students have always occupied top three positions in national and international competitions.

CUIB being a cradle of innovation, growth mindset and entrepreneurship has bootcamps, Academic and trade and other entrepreneurs activities that give the students the opportunity to network with each other and develop their potential to help address 21st century problems.
