Mr. Kho Hou Boon, Sarawak, East Malaysia
I chose to study in ITP because of its excellent facilities such as the computer lab, library, electrical wiring lab, electronic lab, robotics lab and programmable logic controller lab and internet services. I find the courses well structured and varied and extremely useful in improving my understanding and implementation of theory in practical situations. The lecturing staff at ITP are very supportive, giving guidance and encouragement when it is really needed. I really appreciate all these things!
