Cladtek Indonesia has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University of Riau Kepulauan in Batam, Indonesia, to establish a strategic partnership to enhance educational programs and foster skill development for local students.

This MoU marks a significant step towards our collaborative effort to advance higher education and provide industry experience to students within the regions where Cladtek operates. It outlines several key initiatives under the Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka (MBKM) program, emphasising freedom in learning and providing students with opportunities to gain industry experience through internships and practical training.

Key Aspects of the Partnership:

  • Internship Programs: Implementation of the Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka internship program, offering students hands-on experience in a professional setting at Cladtek.
  • Event partnerships: Joint organisation of seminars, conferences, workshops, and other academic events in Indonesia and globally.
  • Skill Development: Collaboration on curriculum development and providing a Basic English course for our local employees who wish to improve their communication skills.
  • Research and Development: Conduct joint research projects and share expertise and resources to benefit both institutions.
  • Community Engagement: Participation in community services, furthering the Tridharma Perguruan Tinggi (Three Pillars of Higher Education), which includes education, research, and community service.

This partnership will initially be for five years, with the possibility of an extension where we both look forward to a successful collaboration and to collectively contributing to the growth and development of the community.
