ITC contributes to maintain sustainable development and decrease the inequalities within our society through its internal functioning and opening-up to foreign countries and the way their students get admitted. ITC enjoys numerous cooperative agreements with European, Regional, and local Universities. These agreements help improve the quality of the educational program, create new degrees, and enable collaboration in new research projects and mobility of lecturers and students. ITC also enjoys privileged relations with a great number of Cambodian companies and multinationals which have branches throughout Cambodia.
Beside the education as engineer and technician, ITC also committed to promote the research activity by gathering the alumni, Master and PhD degree, graduated from oversea, approaching the industries and local enterprises, and collaborating research both local and international universities. A first research center was established at ITC which is supported by JICA on July 14, 2015. This research center is mainly focused on Mechanical engineering, Electrical engineering, and Geo-resources and geotechnical engineering. However, it is expected that more research thematic across multidisciplinary would be our goal. Current, the industry university (IU) linkage offices has been created. This allows more chances to ITC to work with the private sectors. An immediate action has been made through the creation of IU consortium with around 30 SMEs as member.
