More importantly, the team got a group of students partaking in companies so that can boost their practical aspects. This brought benefits to industrial- engineering students who became able to diagnose technical problems of factories and work to find solutions.

This project is under umbrella of ILO series of projects rotating around strengthening academic-private sector relationship, and it carried out by CSCED at IUG.
