We have been collaborating with the Ministry of Education (MOE) on its Work-Based Learning (WBL) programme since 2007 by providing WBL to Advanced Diploma students from Politeknik Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah (PSA) in Shah Alam. These students are exposed to Facilities Engineering Maintenance Services and Biomedical Engineering Services on one-year industry attachments at various hospitals managed by our Healthcare arm. Throughout the programme, they undergo a structured curriculum comprising both academic and on the job training, with strict adherence to the Malaysian Certificate Agency’s requirements.
To date, we have completed two WBL programmes with PSA, the Advanced Diploma in Electronics Engineering (Medical) and Advanced Diploma in Facility Management, training a total of 176 students.
In line with new developments and standards in Biomedical Engineering and Facilities Management, PSA has upgraded the two WBL Advanced Diploma programmes to degree programmes. The Advanced Diploma in Electronics Engineering (Medical) has been elevated to a Bachelor of Technology in Electronics Engineering (Medical) (Hons), while the Advanced Diploma in Facility Management is now the Bachelor of Technology in Facility Management (Honours).
On 8 March 2016, the Company signed a Memorandum of Collaboration (MoC) with MOE to continue the collaboration for another two years.
