What our students say...

"I found the course very interesting, it helped me to understand the principles and standards of a professional engineer in the industry. I was also involved with student union clubs and societies which added to my enjoyment as a student at ITB. Upon graduation I was employed in the industry as a network engineer while I continued to tutor mathematics to engineering students. I decided to continue my professional development by studying for my research masters in ITB which I am enjoying thoroughly. I would encourage any student to pursue a degree at ITB."
