New VPN Options
This week new options will be added to the VPN service. 

Firstly, Split VPN options will be added, so you can access ITU systems remotely without crowding the VPN tunnel.

Secondly, login options will be added for the Microsoft Authenticator App in addition to the current SMS option. 

You can read more about why and how this works by clicking below.
Get Inspired by Alumni from Your ITU-Programme!
In week 10 we are going to kick-off this semester's Career Week at ITU with inspirational Alumni Talks.

We have invited two alumni from each ITU Master Programme!

These alumni will talk about their career path, how they use the skills they gained while studying at ITU – and show you examples of their CV.

But most importantly, you will get to ask all the questions you like.
Join the Python Study Group
For eight weeks a group of students and Python enthusiasts will meet up online and follow an introduction to Python.

No previous experience or skill level is required, and a few experienced Python coders will be present to guide everyone. The purpose is to create a learning community of collective efforts and support.

When: Mondays from 17.30-19.30 on Discord, starting March 1, 2021.

Sign up here.

We are also looking for more volunteers.
