CommTECH Camp Highlight 2019 // 8-9th July 2019 // Surabaya, Indonesia

Continuing the success of 2012 to 2018 Community and Technological (CommTECH) Camp, ITS International Office of  the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) is introducing a new innovative program, the 13th CommTECH Camp Highlight 2019. By compiling and building upon the testimonies of former participants, we decided to extend the program to 12 days in order to provide more interaction among participants and also enhance the learning experience. This program will be conducted on 8-19 July 2019 in Surabaya, Indonesia.

The theme of the program is “Solving Local Problems with Global Knowledge”, where two courses are offered:

  • Sub Course A: Exploring Indonesian Design, Art & Culture
  • Sub Course B: Smart Living

Only active lecturers, non-academic staffs & active bachelor, master & doctoral students from any background are eligible for this program.

Furthermore, the upcoming CommTECH Camp Highlight 2019 will be presented as a Project based Learning (PbL) program. Groups will be formed among participants as a platform to help solve real life problems faced by the community. With an increased engagement between participants, facilitators, and the community, a more impactful experience will be achieved. It becomes even more attractive because at the end of the program, all participants will have an opportunity to present their project and ideas which were developed during the course of the program in front of a wider audience.

Our organizing committee has been working hard to make the program a truly memorable experience for all participants. Please see the

for more information.
