ITC is committed to the development of ‘all-round’ graduates with vision and a global outlook, a sense of social responsibility, and critical and creative thinking abilities. Students are encouraged to take up an internship during their course of study. The objectives are:

  • to enable students to connect classroom theory with workplace applications to meet the needs of the industry and society at large.
  • to provides a real-life work experience for our students to apply their knowledge and problem-solving skills to address and manage actual problems at work
  • to help the employers to identify the right candidates to address their needs.
