Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) is a non-profit-making private institution of higher learning. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the company for the support of our Industrial Training Programme, and we look forward to a meaningful development of the University-Industry relationship between the company and UTAR.
We are pleased to inform that LKC FES students will undergo their industrial training every year. The tentative schedule for the industrial training will be:
Training period: June to November (Annual Basis)
Duration : 6 months
Engineering and Science
Training period: October to December (Annual Basis)
Duration : 3 months
Industrial training is part of the curriculum at UTAR to instill in students the right kind of work attitudes and professionalism through interaction with people in the organisations, and exploration of their future roles in industry. The success of the industrial training depends very much on the willingness of the industries to accept the students in their folds. We therefore sincerely urge the company to support our industrial training programme. Besides, employers can utilise the industrial training programme to recruit/assess future potential employees.
We would be glad if your company is interested to offer internship opportunities to our student. The company can express the willingness by sending the information of intern vacancies to Faculty. Please feel free to fill up or approach our IT Coordinator if more information is needed.
