REPRESENTATIVES of the USP and FEA met to formalise their partnership regarding connecting institutional graduates to relevant industry work through an MOU signing.

The collaboration between the parties was officiated by FEA chairman Nizam ud-Dean and USP's Faculty of Science, Technology and Environment dean Anjeela Jokhan, who discussed the importance of producing experienced graduates in the engineering field.

They said there was a need for graduates to be theoretically-equipped and practically-capable on the field and that the partnership hoped to result in such qualities.

"Our aim at USP is to have these programs accredited by an international accreditation agency of professional engineers and one of the critical components in that program is industry experience of students," she said.

Agreeing with her was Mr ud-Dean who said this was an essential part of the engineering profession.
