Established in 2011, Phnom Penh Institute of Technology is a private school in Cambodia that provides knowledge on technological essence. It is currently located in Sen Sok district.
The School Education Law of Cambodia defines institutions of higher education to consist of universities and junior colleges. PPIT provides both junior college and university program and is first introduced into the Cambodian school system in 2011 in order to provide students between the ages of 18 and 22 with basic knowledge in humanities and natural sciences, and advanced skills in technology. The graduates receive an associate degree for 2 years study and bachelor degree for 4 years study.
Fundamentals of technology training are based on what we call “the making of things”, or exquisite workmanship which is possible by the use of a variety of materials and superior technical skills. It should be noted that creativity in technology largely depends on cooperation both domestic and abroad. Thus, PPIT aims to provide up-to-date educational programs to enrich students’ cultural background and to deepen their basic understanding of fundamentals essential for high-tech skills in the age of IT revolution. Through a two-year and four-year course at PPIT, students acquire knowledge and engineering skills through lectures and laboratories, and build up their body and cultivate their mind through cultural and sports club activities.
