Print Email

KUALA LUMPUR, March 15 (Bernama) -- The Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI), an agency under the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, is collaborating with Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP), to produce engineers in various automotive disciplines.
MAI Chief Executive Officer Madani Sahari said the collaboration is in-line with the institute's directive in collaboration with Institutions of Higher Learning in producing more than 5,600 automotive engineers by 2015.
The move will enhance the competitiveness of the local automotive industry, he said.
"MAI and UMP would work together to develop an automotive apprenticeship programme for the benefit of the industry," he said during the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding here Tuesday between MAI and UMP.
He said the programme would see undergraduates of two courses (Mould Engineering and Dies Engineering) working alongside engineers at original equipment manufacturers or vendors during their industrial practical training.
"A significant part of this partnership will be the ability for UMP to provide component testing services currently not available in the country and to develop advanced automotive components technology for over 20 automotive suppliers," he said.
The MAI-UMP collaboration was set to yield results in many areas that would make Malaysian automotive industry a leader in its field.
The venture would offer testing facilities that include testing analysis and various other services at a competitive price.
