Industrial Training

empowers students in continuous improvement

Introduction

It is compulsory for all UTAR LKC FES students to complete industrial training for 3 months (all programmes except QS) or 6 months (for QS only). Industrial training provides exposure of students to the real-life working environment. Students gain experiences valuable for their personal and carrier developments; they observe, learn and develop their interpersonal and communication skills. Besides, the industrial attachment provides students the opportunity to meet and network with people of various occupations.

The objectives of industrial training are to:

  • expose students to professional practices in the industrial sector under supervision of experienced staff,
  • provide an opportunity for students to observe real-life industrial practices and implementation of theoretical lessons and principles learnt in the programme,
  • provide an opportunity for students to acquire interpersonal skills through meeting and working with professionals in the industrial sector.

On completion of industrial training, a student shall be able to:

  1. Apply QS/mathematic/science/engineering fundamentals to task assigned.
  2. Demonstrate the usage of practical skills and modern tools in work place.
  3. Comply with the rules and guidelines relevant to professional/professional engineering practice.
  4. Demonstrate code of ethics and standards of professional conduct.
  5. Demonstrate proficiency in written and oral communication skills.
  6. Perform work independently and as a team.
  7. Demonstrate life-long learning and self-improvement.

Industrial training is part of the curriculum at UTAR to instill in students the right kind of work attitudes and professionalism through interaction with people in the organisations, and exploration of their future roles in industry. The success of the industrial training depends very much on the willingness of the industries to accept the students in their folds. We therefore sincerely urge the company to support our industrial training programme. Besides, employers can utilise the industrial training programme to recruit/assess future potential employees.

We would be glad if your company is interested to offer internship opportunities to our student. The company can express the willingness by sending the information of intern vacancies to Faculty. Please feel free to fill up https://forms.gle/YcvCP5CA61xZGNzM6  or approach our IT Coordinator if more information is needed.

The Roles and Responsibilities of Company

During the industrial training, a site (industrial) supervisor from the company shall be assigned. The industrial supervisor should have the necessary qualifications or work experiences in the related area. The supervisor needs to coordinate, guide and advise student based on the course outcomes specified by the Faculty. At the end of industrial training, the supervisor needs to evaluate the student’s performance by completing the IT Student Appraisal Form. The student appraisal form must be SEALED and returned to respective academic Supervisor via the student. The company needs to ensure the safety and welfare of the students throughout the industrial training period. In the event of student misconduct, the company shall feedback to Faculty immediately. Should the company needs any further information, the company shall approach our IT Coordinator throughout the industrial training period.


LKC FES Industrial Training Cooperative Partner (ITCP)

A list of companies which are classified as Lee Kong Chian Industrial Training Cooperative Partners (LKC FES ITCP) will be posted on Faculty notice boards and UTAR website through the Faculty General Office. In principle, the University will assist student to arrange an industrial training placement in an ITCP listed company. The student must apply for the positions advertised by the University through Faculty. The company may interview, or may just accept the student recommended by the Faculty via lecturer-in-charge. However, once the arrangement is done, the student must accept the offer; otherwise, the student will need to withdraw the registration of industrial training

Benefits of becoming a LKC FES ITCP listed company include:

  • Company will give priority in selection of potential students.
  • The Company do not need to consider individual student application during the placement process.
  • More systematic placement process that will be arranged by Faculty in batch.
  • The placement process will be closely monitored by Faculty and validation of intern is guaranteed.

UTAR MoU partners, IAP companies, Anchored Companies and Selected companies will be invited to express their willingness to be included in the list of ITCP on annual basis. The detailed of vacancies must be stated clearly in the form. The submission deadline is one week before the pre-trimester is started (i.e. 15 May for Non-QS programmes and 07 Jan for QS programme). To ensure the effectiveness of the industrial training placement process, the ITCP are reminded that NO individual student application should be accepted from the Faculty.
