What our students say...

"I chose Mechatronic Engineering at ITB because I always questioned how things worked as a child and wanted to understand all things related to technology. The college has great facilities for students undertaking engineering courses such as designated engineering workshops and labs. If you are a hands-on focused hardworking individual, this course will suit you."
