Past and Present
1959 - 2008
50, same goal
The Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires (ITBA) was founded on November 20, 1959 by a group of sailors and civilians with the aim of creating a house of studies specially devoted to the teaching of engineering and science related to the sea.
At that time Argentina needed a university teaching this kind of knowledge with a high degree of excellence. Thus began the story that stands out as one of its founders and main inspirer Vice Admiral Charles A. Garzoni, who served for several years as Rector, during the initial development organization and the university.
Academic activities started in 1960 when the first class began to attend school. Over the years the number of students was increasing significantly different specialties were also joining.
Until 1965 the University worked in the building located at 1930 Cuba Street in the City of Buenos Aires. Then he made the move to the building of the Avenida Eduardo Madero where he currently works.
During these almost 50 years of experience, the ITBA has hosted thousands of young students and adults, Argentine and foreign, who have been given an instruction to the highest academic level, without leaving a warm human formation .

Another way to bond with the companies is through the fellowship and internship program that each year is optimized to provide more and better opportunities for learning and professional development students.
