Each department has its own scientific association that recruits its members through student elections. The task of these associations is to make many visits to related industries, which adds an active learning aspect to the theories which are learned in the classroom and gives students the opportunity to see how these theories are put into practice and a general industry. Each association is responsible for many annual training courses that cover a wide range of topics from Photoshop to software and subject-related skills and competencies in each discipline. Some societies publish their scientific journals. Inter-departmental celebrations are another task of scientific associations.

In addition to the science associations that make education fun, there are several other clubs with different topics from the university. Students can volunteer at such clubs, which are related to art, philosophy and so on. These clubs are places to collaborate with peers that students can share non-academic interests. There are a lot of these clubs at IUT. The significant number of them are introduced below.
