History of physical education in IUST
Before 1983, all the educational affairs (phys, Ed.1-2) andintramural activities pertaining to physical education and sports were supervised as one unit, under the name of physical education administration, managed by one of the educational group members. Structurally, this office was considered a subordinate of the student Deputy. In 1983 along with the changes made to the employment status of the personnel involved in education, the educational staff was promoted from specialists to faculty.
Memmbers, separated from the student Deputy and incorporated into the department of fundamental science.
in this phase, however, because of the limited number of students and educational activities, educational as well as intramural programs were still planned by the physical education administration.
As student population increased, so did the need for educational intrameural programs, A new structure for the organization of physical education deemed inevitable, for that matter faculty members and office staff proposed the establishment of a deputy in this section to pursue intramural affaires, This matter did not however, get approved due to the monetary limitations to pay the wages of the prospective staff, according to presiding rules.
