THAILAND-based SCG Co will ink a memorandum of understanding with a government-run training school to teach an industrial science programme in Mawlamyine Township in Mon State to create more employment opportunities.
U Aung Moe, the principal of the training school, said the programme allows students who pass a matriculation examination to join urban engineering, electrical power, industrial engineering and electricity programmes.
The signing of the MoU is estimated to be made next month, he added.
Negotiations have been undertaken between the two parties since January this year to sign the new programme.
Under the MoU, 20 outstanding students from the electrical power and industrial engineering field will be invited to join intensive training for the first time with a Thailand-based company in November.
Plans are underway to grant third-year students to join the intensive training to pursue not only theoretical lessons but also hands-on courses on relevant subjects.
Because of accommodation barriers, the training school can only accept around 40 students per course, per year. Students with high marks top the priority lists for acceptance. —Myitmakha News Agency
