Student clubs link students with college administrations and department councils. Through these clubs, students can present their ideas on topics related to their education and recognize the administration's and faculty members' points of view; such exchange of views enhances mutual trust and students' connection with their universities. Student clubs can serve as a platform through which students freely express their ideas and creativity and find an outlet for their talents away from courses. Student clubs can provide various opportunities to link students with the university community and the labor market. They also enhance students' active participation in identifying societal issues and problems and seeking practical solutions.

The Department of Electronic Media at the College of Science and Theoretical Studies understands the importance of student clubs in the empowerment of knowledge and skills of its members in digital media activities linked with the current and future needs of the labor market.
