Students given chance to become engineers

Eleven students completed the 14-week Bridging for Tomorrow’s Engineers (BriTE) course.

The course is a programme between Kemuda Institute and Universiti Teknologi Brunei (UTB). BriTe is open to applicants who meet UTB’s minimum entry requirement but fell short of points for admission to specific engineering undergraduate programmes.

Students were given an opportunity to upgrade their knowledge and skills required to further their study at an engineering programme at UTB.

Upon completion, the students are eligible for admission into the first year of UTB’s Faculty of Engineering undergraduate programmes of their choice – BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering, BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, BEng (Hons) in Mechatronics Engineering or BEng (Hons) in Chemical Engineering.

BriTE student Dayangku Alya Atha’asa said, “My experience in Kemuda Institute was educational and pleasant as all the lecturers and staff are kind and humourous. BriTE Programme has given me the opportunity to elevate my ‘A’ Level points so that I can further my studies in UTB.”
