The CommTECH Camp Insight (Community and Technological Camp Insight) program at the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh is a project-based learning program where groups of participants will gather to help solve real-life problems faced by the community. 

The program includes courses, visitation and discussion with government and non-government agencies, societal engagement, Indonesian language courses, learning traditional music and dances, visit main tourist destinations, and for sure tasting delicious Indonesian food. 


Continuing the success of 2012 to 2018 Community and Technological (CommTECH) Camp, ITS International Office is introducing a new innovative program, CommTECH Camp Insight 2019. The CommTECH Camp Insight 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 developed during the course of the program in front of a wider audience.

The theme of the program is “Solving Local Problems with Global Knowledge”. For more information, please visit the host website and program brochure.
