This MoA Signing is a follow-up towards the signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between PT. Wijaya Karya (Persero) Tbk and Universitas Gadjah Mada. Instead of Vocational College, there were Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Law of UGM signing the MoA at the same time.
“Each year, PT. Wijaya Karya (Persero) Tbk demands 2500 human resources. This condition leads Vocational College UGM to establish collaboration which accomodates students in doing internship. It would also give us golden opportunity to promote our students to work in PT. Wijaya Karya (Persero) Tbk after graduation by passing some screenings beforehand, “ Radhian said.
By this agreement signing, the student internship and training program agreed between Vocational College UGM and PT. Wijaya Karya (Persero) Tbk could be organized further by full support from various aspects in Vocational College UGM.
