Letter From the President

Welcome to International Technological University!

ITU was founded and built upon a single ideal: to provide students with a high-quality education, closely tied to the trends of industry. We continue to uphold this ideal today, welcoming a diverse body of students to ITU, all of whom are united by the desire to further their education, and find career success.

What makes our university truly special is the Silicon Valley leaders, who make up our teaching and research faculty. Our faculty comes from companies like HP, Cisco, Google, NASA and ARM. These professors come to ITU to share their industry knowledge with you in the classroom. Our faculty work hard to tailor our curriculum to the needs of today’s job market. ITU’s accreditation by WASC, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, recognizes the quality of its offerings and services to our students, and the broader community.

We are located in the heart of Silicon Valley, which provides unparalleled opportunities for our students in networking, and being part of the most technologically innovative community in the world. You can pursue internships and post-graduate careers with some of the globe’s foremost technological companies, or work with entrepreneurs in exciting start-ups. Our campus was built with the collaborative spirit of Silicon Valley in mind. Cooperative learning spaces allow you to work on group projects with other students and professors, while on-campus research labs give you the chance to participate in cutting edge research.

At ITU, we want to help you reach your goals. As we continue to grow both nationally and internationally, our focus will always remain on you, the student. From our skills-based education model, to our Career and Student Services, we are here to help you become a successful member of, and leader in, your chosen field. ITU is built on a strong foundation of academic excellence and student success, laid down by our founder, Dr. Shu-Park Chan. Together we will continue to build upon the educational framework that Dr. Chan established, now and into the future.

I hope you enjoy your time as part of the ITU community.
