The event proceeded with the presentation of CoE to the 2022 intake of students from PB and IBTE under the joint collaboration programmes.

Some 145 students from PB and 35 students from IBTE received the CoE in the presence of PB Acting Director Lim Kian Boon and IBTE CEO and Director of Technical Education Dr Haji Mohd Zamri bin Haji Sabli.

These joint collaboration programmes, created in partnership with Hengyi Industries, PB, IBTE and Lanzhou Petrochemical University of Vocational Technology (LPUVT), offer various programmes to PB and IBTE students.

A total of 473 CoE have been awarded to the students of PB and IBTE so far.

The joint scholarship and collaboration programme is part of Hengyi Future-Ready, an initiative aimed at nurturing the Sultanate’s youth into highly-skilled individuals, bringing the nation closer to realising Brunei Vision 2035.
