SEGi University and Bahru Stainless Sdn Bhd signed a Memorandum of Understanding as a commitment to work together.

SEGi University and Colleges executive director and group president Datuk Mohamed Azahari Kamil said the partnership will benefit its engineering students in their careers.

The varsity not only plays an important role in providing students with academic qualifications, but helps them find their bearings in the industry quickly and smoothly, he said.

He added that the institution is always on the lookout for partnership opportunities with global industry captains.

“By partnering with industry leaders, students will not only have better knowledge but skills that will prepare them for the real world.

“They will be able to serve not only the Malaysian market, but the global market as well, increasing their employability,” he added.

Mohamed Azahari also said the collaboration is a very significant one as it “bonds” the industry and academic sector.

“This collaboration is very important as it helps us build a good network with the industries, resulting in strong engagement between both sectors.

“The internship programme will require students to be hands-on in the field to get real world experience,” he said.

The company’s CEO Oswald Wolfe Gomez said the partnership will help SEGi University’s engineering students, particularly final year students, secure internship opportunities with the company.

He added it would also grant the students quick access to good and rewarding jobs.

“It is a good opportunity for us to spot talented, hard-working candidates who can work well in the organisation, providing job opportunities for them,” he said.

Gomez added that the partnership was a great way of giving the students a kick start.

The company and the varsity will also work in areas such as research and exchange of ideas through industrial training for SEGi students and lecturers.
