RMUTT offers students internship opportunities in the United States
Enhancing experience – Ready for future career, Mr. Wirat Hotwaisaya, Acting President of Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi (RMUTT) revealed that RMUTT had previously pushed one of its many policies to assist students with the support of ‘Student Development Fund’. This particular funding could encourage and support students to gain their overseas experiences by applying transfer credits to degree requirement, helping conduct research work, offering research internship opportunities and internship studies.
“After the follow-up on students who had completed their international internship, I would have to say that the results have been satisfying. Students who had their opportunities to study abroad were able to improve their language skills with much better abilities to adjust themselves to the new environment, gaining new knowledge, and behave themselves well in those designated foreign countries. Concerning their language skills, they were much more confident to use English or other foreign languages as a mean of communication.”
Mr Wirat also added that this year, yet again the university would offer international internship opportunities for 403 students funded by ‘Student Development Fund’ and at the same time, the other 133 students funded by ‘International Cooperative Internship Fund’ including 35 students from the Faculty of Home Economics Technology who would have been staying in USA for 11 months. Moreover, there would also be six more students going to America and the other four going to France were on their process of language assessment.
“From our close observation on students who returned from their international internship, many of students had managed to save handsome amounts of money but some of them went back while some of them were still working in Thailand but with better salary. This could very much inspire their university juniors to go for their international internship opportunities which had been increasing every year. At the end of this year, we expect our 600 students to do the internships abroad with (15 million baht) financial support from ‘Student Development Fund’ and ‘International Cooperative Internship Fund’.
Ms. Jirawat Rean-ari, Dean of the Faculty of Home Economics Technology said that students in the Food and Nutrition Department were able to acquire their professional experience abroad, open up their professional perspectives and train in Western food style diners.
