Regina is enthusiastic about the opportunity to continue the legacy of the ITP and develop the program further. 'I am really excited to work with such a forward-thinking and dynamic team, and I am especially looking forward to working with students again,' says Regina.
The ITP partner with large companies and governmental or municipal organisations that aim to develop their business, processes, operations and solutions in the digital field.
