Sumbawa University of Technology (UTS) through the UTS Global Ambassador Scholarship (U-GAS) Program enables future leaders from all over the world to channel their potential and connect with the dynamics of Indonesian emerging economic potentials and unique challenges. Utilizing its geographical location, UTS offers students to study and live close to the beautiful nature of Sumbawa Island.

Learning, engaging in unique cultural diversity, and exploring the beautiful nature of Eastern Indonesia can go hand in hand. We encourage our students to engage with the local community to learn about their challenges and work on solutions to help them advance in life through science and technology. We believe that future leaders are those who see the world beyond the common narratives and seek to understand the world comprehensively.
