ITC Alumni Community

It may be one, 10 or even 60 years since they left, but ITC’s former students still have a strong bond with the Institute and the Netherlands, and still keep in touch with ITC and friends from their student days.

ITC alumni belong to a worldwide community of over 20,000 individuals, who together form an extensive network of international contacts, a network that includes United Nations organisations, universities, research groups, resources survey and map production services, and various international professional associations.
