KUCHING: There is good news for students at Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Sarawak who are pursuing Diploma in Town Planning since they will not only receive scholarships but also a job guarantee upon graduation.
Yayasan Sarawak director Mersal Abang Rosli noted that they are working on the initiative with the Land and Survey Department.
“We will manage sponsorship of students pursuing Diploma in Town Planning at UiTM Sarawak.
“Apart from that, successful students are also promised a position under state services following graduation for a period of five years,” he said at the launch of the Sarawak Education Expo, which was officiated by Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg at Dewan Jamilah, Yayasan Sarawak here, yesterday.
Mersal added that such opportunities are an example that students are unaware of.
“Therefore, exhibition is so important and must be organised in order for attendees to have access to the most recent information,” he explained.
The Sarawak Education Expo, which was organised by Yayasan Sarawak in partnership with the Sarawak Resident and District Office and the Education District Office, aims to enlighten students, particularly SPM leavers who have recently received their results, about the most recent educational possibilities available.
