  • Identity cards for students admitted to study at later dates will be printed and given to students at the time agreed by the Institute of Computer Technology (UVT) and Study Departments.
  • Identity cards for students, who applied to more than one Faculty of TUKE, will not be pre-printed. Only one student identity card will be printed for the faculty of student´s choice, and the student will report this information to the UVT (
