Welcome to UNITECH International
The UNITECH International Society was founded in 2000 for the academic and corporate worlds to jointly develop a group of talented young engineers to enable them to successfully manage future challenges in global industry and to help bridge the gap between the corporate and academic world. UNITECH also provides a platform for networking and exchange of ideas. UNITECH has succeeded in providing an opportunity for multinational companies to get in contact at an early stage with talented engineers who come from many different cultural backgrounds and who share an interest in a future career in management.
