Undergraduates Program

There are four main training structures in I-CoE Biotechnology.

I. Structured Internship Program (SIP)

This program involves students of the first year until the fourth year with the aim to provide opportunity for the future graduates to make an early preparation before stepping into career life. Early industry exposure is also important to assist the future graduates in making the right decision in choosing the right career that suit them best.

The students start their industrial training in the companies that engage with I-CoE

The module used under this program is not limited to the one proposed by I-CoE, considering the different technical skill required for different field of career. Therefore, the modules can also be proposed by (i) University and (ii) Industry

II. Industrial Training (LI)

This program is a compulsory program in all public IHL in Malaysia. The program can be run through several mechanisms with the aim to add value to the future graduates. The mechanisms are outlined as follows:

  1. I-CoE Biotechnology to organize a talent development program that is unique for the students that will be enrolling in industrial training, or;
  2. I-CoE Biotechnology to arrange the placement of the students for industrial training in the companies that engage with I-CoE Biotechnology, or;
  3. All of the above

III. Talent Development (TD)

The industry is not only demanding for an academic achiever but also candidate that excels in soft skills which include communication, personality and several others. Based on this justification, the program is set as one of the scopes of work of I-CoE Biotechnology.

The module used under this program is not limited to the one proposed by I-CoE, considering the different technical skill required for different field of career. Therefore, the modules can also be proposed by (i) University and (ii) Industry

IV. Training of Trainers (ToT)

The purpose of the program is to equip the trainers (lecturer, postgraduates, and technical staff) with the knowledge and experience that can facilitate the trainers in providing guidance and technical training to the students. Certificate of acknowledgement will be awarded to each participant and the knowledge and experience must be shared with the students. ToT can be generally classified into several types as follows:
