A GROUP of 18 attachment students were awarded certificates of appreciation in an event organised by the Brunei Methanol Company (BMC) yesterday at the SPARK (Sungai Liang Industrial Park) Theatre to mark the successful completion of their course.
They comprised instructors from the Department of Technical Education and students from Institut Teknologi Brunei (ITB) and Jefri Bolkiah Engineering College (MKJB).
The students also delivered presentations discussing on what they have learnt throughout their four-month placement with the company in the presence of the BMC Chief Executive Officer, Akira Ishiwada; MKJB Deputy Principal, Borhan bin Hj Jais; BMC Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Daud bin Hj Jais as well as lecturers from ITB, Mohammad Hazwan bin Azri and Dr Maziyar Sabet.
The presentations touched on their experiences and lessons from their work attachment in technical areas such as Maintenance, Electrical and Operations.
Borhan bin Hj Jais, the Deputy Principal of MKJB, in a speech said this course was significant as it provided a platform for students and instructors to learn the things that aren’t taught in schools.
“They (the instructors) have gained useful knowledge and experience which are beneficial for the Ministry of Education to develop students’ competency so that they are work-ready when they graduate,” he said.
Since 2010, BMC has continuously supported the technical education as one of their corporate and social responsibility commitments producing approximately 50 industrial attachment students to date.
