Education & Student Resources


Education in ITS is very important, both to ensure we have a continuous stream of well educated young people entering the ITS sector, and to keep up the learning process for existing professionals.  This page offers an updated selection of information about courses and other learning opportunities.

If you are a course provider, please get in touch to have your course listed here.  This service is free to Members and a small charge is payable by others.

Many ITS (UK) Members are willing to give lectures, suggestions for MSc topics, and other help to students and universities.  Lists of these can be found on the Members Homepage of this site.  If you are not an ITS (UK) Member, email us to find out more about guest lecturers and other assistance our Members can give to students and universities.
