POLITEKNIK Brunei marked another milestone when it forged its first international partnership with Singa-porean oil and gas industry training provider PetroEDGE to provide internship, career and networking opportunities for Politeknik Brunei’s students and lecturers.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Politeknik Brunei and Singapore’s Asia Edge Pte Ltd, the holding company of PetroEDGE and also NrgEdge Pte Ltd, a professional networking platform for the energy industry, at a ceremony held at Politektnik Brunei in Jalan Ong Sum Ping in the capital yesterday.
The guest of honour was Pehin Orang Kaya Indera Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Suyoi bin Haji Osman, the Minister of Education.
The MoU was aimed at establishing a formal collaboration and cooperation for training opportunities and access to the online platform created by Asia Edge Pte Ltd and NrgEdge Pte Ltd for the mutual benefit in training students. The collaboration hopes to provide worldwide internship opportunities for Politeknik Brunei students to apply and also to encourage career and growth opportunities outside Brunei.
This collaboration will allow Politeknik Brunei students and lecturers to network with various worldwide recognised industries in seeking jobs as well as participating in online forums and discussions, looking into digital technical learning through the company’s dedicated learning platform at www.nrgedge.net/learning.
