Welcome to the Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC). Since its establishment in 1964, ITC has a proud record of success and achievements contributed toward nation building through human resources development for Cambodia economic growth. ITC has, for more than four decades, established a link between the French and the English speaking networks in the region and in the world. With its numerous collaborators, administrators, students, faculty staff and alumni, this institution offers a unique multilateral context for an exchange of views with ministries, local authorities, NGOs, the private sector and partner institutions. ITC has a mission to train students with high quality education in the fields of engineering, sciences and technologies and to equip graduates to meet the rapidly changing, economic demands and increasing innovative skills towards technology transfer to the community and entrepreneurship. Students are provided with a strong scientific base and technical know‐how and skills which allow their integration and evolution in the labor market. This is possible because of highly competitive students which are selected through entrance examination, research oriented faculty and infrastructure that is most suited towards quality of teaching and learning. Apart from focusing on academics, ITC also lays emphasis on R&D activities toward skills for innovation by turning research output to business and technology transfer. Based on the decision of the annual board meeting, the future orientation of ITC is to expand the engineering education in response to the needs of Cambodia future economy and to develop research platforms in order to sustain the development of the country. This requires strengthening the basic scientific knowledge, developing research programs in connection with the private sector and national and international stakeholders, supporting communities, fostering economic development through entrepreneurship programs, and to help our graduate students integrating the global economy and to prepare them for the professional world. On behalf of ITC, I am thankful to government and collaborators from academia local and international and industry for their support. Best wishes!
