2017 copy (1)

Continuing the success of 2012 to 2016 Community and Technological (CommTECH) Camp, ITS International Office is again holding CommTECH Camp Highlight 2017 with new concept. Listening to the voice of the former participants, we decided to extend the program to 14 days in order to provide more interaction among participants. This program will be held on 12 – 25 July 2017. Not only that, the coming CommTECH Highlight 2017 will be organized in a form of Project based Learning (PbL). Participants will be team up & given a real problem related to the topic to be solved. More engagement among participants, facilitators, and community is truly encouraged. It becomes even more attractive because at the end of the program, all participants will have an opportunity to present their project and ideas developed during the program in front of wider audience in the CommTECH Ideas. CommTECH Ideas is an international student conference which invites students and young researchers from all around the world to share knowledge and ideas to solve real problems in society with multidisciplinary approach.
