SINGAPORE : Republic Polytechnic (RP) and aviation industry giant Pratt & Whitney will work together to train aviation professionals to be industry—ready.
They signed a two—year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Tuesday.
Under the MOU, Pratt & Whitney will provide internships and industrial attachments regularly to the polytechnic students for each year through its Global Service Partners’ Singapore—based facilities.
It will also develop a six—year fast track programme at one of its facilities, Turbine Overhaul Services, for recruited graduates from the RP School of Engineering.
Pratt & Whitney will sponsor their Bachelor’s degree.
When they complete the programme, they will be converted to full—time salaried employees, providing Pratt & Whitney with a pool of qualified engineers as well as allowing RP students to enter the workforce quickly as competent and skilled engineers.
Pratt & Whitney will also sponsor RP students through scholarships or book prizes, starting with RP’s Gold Medal Award for the most outstanding graduate from the Aerospace Engineering programme.
