The Institute of Technology of Cambodia, Phnom Penh
The Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC) is a cambodian public higher education institution and the leading university in Cambodia in Engineering and Sciences. The goals and objectives of ITC are to provide students with a high quality education in the fields of engineering, sciences and technology. Students are given strong scientific bases and technical know-how which allow integration and evolution in the labor market. The Institute of Technology of Cambodia has always kept close ties with its institutional partners and Francophone universities (France, Belgium) while remaining in cooperation with Asian university networks.
This cooperation enables it to ensure a high rate of student and faculty exchange through specific programs (Erasmus+, Asean University Network South-East Engineering Education (AUN/SEED-Net)). Beside academic activities, ITC contributes to the improvement of gender balance and alleviation of poverty with a policy of lower fees for female and scholarships for students coming from disadvantaged backgrounds. Today, undergraduate programs in 7 Engineering Departments award a diploma to more than 600 bachelor students every year. Since 2010, ITC has established research activities and a Graduate School.
