Industrial Training / Internship



Industrial Training (LI) refers to a university’s Compulsory Attendance (HW) course that places students in an organization either locally or abroad to undergo practical training before they are awarded a Diploma or Bachelor’s Degree. LI was first implemented at Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) in 1996. Throughout its implementation, various parties have contributed ideas towards improving the implementation of LI among UTHM students. 

For FPTP, students are required to undergo industrial training for a period of  minimum 16 weeks at organisations approved by the university. Every student will be evaluated by the faculty and industrial supervisor. In this program, students are expected to be trained in a systematic and structured way  such as design, construction, human resources planning, engineering management, cost preparation, entrepreneurship, consultancy and research.

Students are also trained in several aspects including human resource, production operation, construction, real estate as well as ethics in the industry. Students shall be given the opportunity to be directly involved in management, planning, budget preparation, documentation, supervision and maintenance of a project, which depend on their availability in the industry. Students shall also be involved in complex engineering problems and workplace constraints that will benefit them by improving their mental and physical wellness.

  • The aim of this course is to provide opportunities to students to undergo practical training in the employment sector in the fields of engineering management, construction management technology, technology management, cost preparation, entrepreneurship, consultancy and research to improve professional skills and interpersonal skills.
