I also take this opportunity to acknowledge the role played by the industry and other stakeholders that contribute immensely towards meeting our objectives. Collaboration with industries on trainees’ attachment, internship and recently on curriculum development through Industrial Advisory Committees (IAC) has encouraged technology transfer among the trainees.
