Update : November 15, 2022


  • RITAJ stands for RIT Alumni in Japan.

    They were early contributors to our Newsletter.
  • U Thein Ngwe is Moderator for RU Centennial Group

  • Attended SPZPs in Singapore and Myanmar.
  • Attended the 2015 RIT Alumni Reunion in Los Angeles, California, USA.
  • According to “Ko Thein”, there are young alumni working in Japan and they have their gatherings but not as RITAJ activity.
  • “RIT” is just a place holder for the engineering institutes and colleges in Burma/Myanmar, but it is possible that some young alumni do not relate themselves with “RIT”.
