Introduction: AIT Alumni Grid
We feel it is vital that AIT provides you with all the resources you need to be successful and achieve the heights you deserve but, first, we must ask for your thoughts on what YOU want from AIT. It is only through your feedback and involvement that we are better able to support you in the way YOU need.
Some of our preliminary ideas are based on developing and promoting alum benefits that you perceive to be useful and valuable; implementing a comprehensive communication system based on your preferences; modifying events and activities to reflect your preferences, inclusiveness and relevance; creating and facilitating volunteer opportunities; developing a formal referral system for recruitment and general AIT promotion; encouraging and supporting our current students by becoming a mentor; and keeping you updated on evolving/changing market trends. It will be your feedback which will determine in which way we can support you in your future professional endeavors. Our early alum have lost touch with us and we have made many efforts to try and reach them. They are as essential to our alum body as our more recent members and we can learn so much from their experiences beyond AIT.
AIT could not ask for a more worthy ambassador than you. It is with great pride that we stand behind you. Our alumni and current students are the life of AIT, you are the ones that shape AIT’s character and we know that we are in good hands. Your skills, knowledge and experience both at AIT and beyond AIT’s borders have made you stronger, you are in demand, you have everything tomorrow’ industry needs in order to meet its future needs.
The "AIT Grid News" is not atraditional academic newsletter and has a lighter perspective. It will include a variety of different issues that may have nothing to do with the ICT world, such as history, social, educational, music and arts, travel, books, Greek news, interviews with people who have left their mark on the world, etc. We are young, open to ideas, thirsty for knowledge, and part of our roots will always be in Greece!
Let us support you…tell us how….give us your ideas…
"I think one of the key factors that made MSITT such a unique experience, was the low number of students in AIT, unlike large cold universities with thousands of students where you get lost in the crowd. We got to see everyone almost every day and we could give our feedback at any time in a direct way."
