Friends of the ITT e.V.

ITT´s supporting association
Since the founding of the ITT in 1998, the institute has been supported by the association. The non-profit association engages in fundraising, establishes contacts to experts and supports important ITT goals and projects.

The International Association presents international students and alumni, as well as representatives of institutes and partner institutions. The special features of the study programs at ITT, such as the solidarity and composition of the students from all over the world, research activities and scientific events, come with certain demands and challenges.

The association provides support where there is a lack of resources and is thus an important support in the effort to guarantee a high quality educational experience at ITT.

• Promoting the development of the institute by connecting and intensifying contacts with relevant institutions.

• The promotion of ITT studies. Providing assistance in the nancing of excursions and project work.

• The awarding of extraordinary study achievements – money and material prizes will be awarded for the best Master thesis of the year in a festive award ceremony.
