The Canadian Institute of Technology (CIT) (Albanian: Kolegji Universitar "Instituti Kanadez i Teknologjisë") is a for-profit university located in Tirana, Albania.[1][2]

History and organisation[edit]

The private academic institution “Canadian Institute of Technology” (CIT) was established in 2011. Its philosophy aims to provide potential students with the necessary and competitive skills demanded by the Albanian and Balkan region as well as the European and North-American labour markets.

Offering the curricula in the English language makes it possible for CIT to use the latest teaching methodologies with updated academic materials and to open larger horizons for graduates in the Balkan region and beyond.

“Canadian Institute of Technology” is organised in two faculties:

Faculty of Engineering is composed of these units:

  • Department of Software Engineering
  • Department of Industrial Engineering
  • Scientific Research Unit “CIRD Engineering”

Faculty of Economy is composed of these units:

  • Department of Business Administration
  • Department of Business Administration and Information Technology

CIT's mission is to prepare students to become professional leaders in a global market based on a north-american based curriculum. The school received accreditation on 25 March 2016.
