My current job title is Transport Specialist, East Asia Department, Transport and Communication Division as I work for ADB (Asia Development Bank). My experience at ITS really helped me in my current position by studying various kinds of topics such as planning, safety, environment and traffic management. The learning in ITS are the major issues in ADB's urban transport project for developing countries in Asia.

I chose my course at ITS and Leeds University as it was recommended to me by a British friend.

If I were to give any advice for new students thinking about taking a course at ITS I would simply say, go for it and be ready for the hard work. Every subject in ITS is worthwhile taking and will help your future career.
