Institut Universitaire de la Cote, also known as through its acronym ‘IUC’, is a private university located in Logbessou, Douala, Cameroon. IUC was officially established following the ministerial order; N°02/0094/MINESUP/DDES of September 13, 2002. The idea behind this university stems from the observations carried out by its founder. He observed that the industrial sector of Cameroon in particular, and CEMAC in general, lacked well-trained technicians and an adequate technical education system. Since the knowledge provided by the universities at the time, weren’t tailored to meet the need of the job market, he decided to create a specialised institution to solve this problem. IUC operates in two campuses, namely; the Logbessou campus and the Akwa campus.

Institut Universitaire de la Cote is well known for constantly producing the best student at the Higher National Diploma (HND). In the years; 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019, IUC produced the best student at the Higher National Diploma exam. This consecutive topping are always followed by words of appreciation by the country’s Ministry of Higher Education. IUC has over the years built and maintained partnerships with leading schools and universities abroad such as the Universities of Maine, Lorraine and Quemper in France; the universities of Camerino and Tor Vergata in Italy; CCNB in ​​Canada and many others. To that effect, it organises annual ‘Integration Days’ to enable its students to create networks, transfer knowledge and muster teamwork with students of partner universities. IUC is also known for its impressive exhibitions during national exhibition events, during this years ‘PROMOTE’ (International Exhibition for Enterprises, SMEs and Partnerships), the university presented a tractor and a medical tool conceived in their laboratories.

About the city of Douala
Douala is Cameroon’s largest city and economic capital. It is located in the Littoral region. The word Douala refers to both the natives (Douala tribe) of the land and the rhythmic tribal dialect or language of the area (Douala). Historical sources declare that Douala was first discovered by the Portuguese explorer called Hanno in 1472. By 1650, the tribe with the Douala native language (Sawa) migrated from the islands toward the coastal region and settled in the present-day Douala region. In 1800, Douala became an active transatlantic slave trade seaport for the shipment of slaves to western nations.
In 1884 the German Gustav Natchigal signed a treaty with two Douala chiefs that led to the German annexation of Cameroon. After the annexation, the Germans made Douala the Capital of German Cameroon (Kamerun) and called the present-day city of Douala “Kamerunstadt”. After the German defeat in the First World War, Cameroon became a colony administered by Great Britain and France. In 1919, the administration of the Littoral Region and the city of Douala fell solely under France until 1960 when Cameroon gained its independence.
Today Douala is still the Key commercial city in the central African sub-region. Douala has a tropical monsoon climate with an average annual temperature of 27 °c. Douala people are generally referred to as ‘Sawa’. They are well known by their popular music “Makosa”. Douala has both the busiest airport and seaport in Central African sub-region (CEMAC).

Douala has some historical edifices with deep cultural & historical significance, such as the Plateau Joss, the Bonakouamouang Chimney, the Mausoleum of King Akwa, the Temple of the Centenary, Maritime Museum and several others. These structures are open to exploration and observation by tourist or city dwellers. Douala is predominantly Christian but measures are taken to encourage access to different denominational worship houses. It has a fairly developed road network when compared to other cities in Cameroon. The city is linked by road and rail to other cities like Limbe, Buea, Bamenda, Yaoundé, Ngaoundéré, Kumba and Nkongsamba. Due to constant traffic in the city, motorbikes serve as the main means of transportation. Acting as the country’s economic capital, Douala houses several national and international businesses, companies and NGO’s. It is home to some nationally recognised universities, one of which is the University of Douala. Finally, it possesses many clinics, diagnostic labs, medical centres and hospitals that are well-equipped and staffed by professional medics. The aforementioned facilities should make anyone wishing to study in the economic city of Douala enthusiastic. These facilities serve the broader community and may be of great use to those wishing to study at IUC.
