ITC aims to launch new campus site at Win-Win

The Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC) will start construction of its fourth campus in early March. The new campus will be located near the Win-Win Monument, said a senior official from the school.

Bun Kim Ngun, ITC deputy director-general, told The Post that as the first phase of construction, two buildings were being built. One will be a study and research facility, and the other will provide students accommodation. The project, which is financed by a loan from the World Bank, is scheduled for completion in June 2024.

This 5ha campus will be the ITC’s fourth. Currently, nearly 6,000 students are enrolled at ITC in Phnom Penh, and about 100 in Tbong Khmum province.

Po Kimtho, ITC director-general, said the budget falls under the Higher Education Improvement Project. Through the implementation of the project, the institute has partnered with well-known educational institutions in France, Australia, Thailand and Indonesia.

The partnership focuses on joint training and scientific research. The institute is currently researching processing raw materials into finished food products that will meet local needs.

According to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport’s Strategic Reform for Education, Youth and Sport 2018-2023, the construction of a research school building at the above location is part of the World Bank’s $92.5 million Higher Education Improvement Project, implemented from 2018-2024.

While meeting with last year’s A grade students, Prime Minister Hun Sen instructed the Phnom Penh Municipal Hall and the education ministry to examine the possibility of building more dormitories for students, as university enrollments have increased.

Kim Ngun said the planned dormitory was unrelated to the prime minister’s recent calls for increased accommodation.
