The Higher Education Ministry welcomes the cooperation from various parties in the Kuala Lumpur–Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project to enhance expertise and skills of university students.
Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said such cooperation would expand the skill set of university students and benefit the country in the long run.
“Our education system is open. Thus, we will encourage any form of cooperation that we feel should be done by the university senate that is in line with the needs of country’s industry,” he told reporters at the National Higher Education Carnival 2018 at Melaka International Trade Centre in Ayer Keroh.
“Any cooperation that can provide positive impact to universities in the country will be supported by the ministry.”
Also present at the event were Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron and Higher Education deputy minister Datuk Dr Mary Yap Kain Ching.
Idris said other than the HSR, the East Coast Rail Line project would also open up various field of skills that would need more expertise.
