In order to participate in the Industrial Training Program, students must have completed at least sixty (60) credit hours of subjects excluding Arts and Humanity subjects.
Industrial Training Process:
Students who are going for the training must register to the Industrial Training Mailing List (to be announced during the Industrial Training Briefing). Confirmation of the registration would be done by completing and submitting the Industrial Training Agreement Form to the Faculty. Verification and final approval of students in the Industrial Training process will be done based on the Agreement Form and the student's fulfilling all the requirements in the Agreement Form.
Students are required to work out their own placement with the assistance of the Faculty's Industrial Training Committee according to the procedures that have been predetermined by the Faculty.
The faculty's Industrial Training Committee reserves the full right to decide on the final placement. The Faculty's decision is final. If the student does not agree to the choice determined by the Committee and the matter cannot be resolved between the student and the Committee, then the student will have to postpone his or her Industrial Training.
Typical application documents should include (1) a cover letter indicating the expected outcome from the training, (2) a resume indicating the educational background and results, projects done, extra-curricular activities participated, and other skill descriptions, (3) a copy of the academic transcript and (4) a passport photo (optional) and (5) a Reference Letter from the Faculty indicating the student's identity.
Once the placements are confirmed, student should supplied the Industrial Training Committee with a copy of the Offer Letter (sample here) from the confirmed placement indicating, among others, (1) the period of training, (2) the job scopes during the training.
The student should then proceed with online registration with ICEMS in the stipulated trimester, upon confirmation of company placement and completion of all relevant procedures mentioned in section 1 and 2 above.
Students must report for duty in accordance to the rules of the organization. They must adhere to, among others, the dress code, working hours and working practices of the company. Students are also expected to uphold the image of MMU at all times while undergoing their internship.
A faculty academic staff will be assigned to supervise each student. It is the responsibility of the student to discuss matters relevant to the training and correspond frequently with the faculty supervisor throughout the training period. They must also work closely with the appointed supervisors at the respective organizations.
Students are required to submit monthly progress reports to their supervisors and a final report (refer to the Documentation Guidelines) at the end of the training period.
Any complaint by the students and/or the supervisors will be taken seriously.
Both the external supervisor (company) and internal supervisor (MMU) will evaluate the student based on the submitted monthly reports, final report and presentation. Any remarks/complaints will also be considered in the evaluation.
Students must present their industrial training experience to a panel comprising of selected faculty academic staff after the training.
