Ever since the founding of Bioengineering Technology Section in MICET, we have closely work with industries to benefit both our students and industries, and also solving the real world problems. We are committed to join our academic knowledge with the practical approaches of industry. Currently, we have more than 20 companies working together in many aspects of research and corporate collaborations, where few are listed below:
1. Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation (BiotechCorp)
Collaborations between BiotechCorp and Bioengineering MICET had been established since 2007, with the launch of Biotechnology Entrepreneurship Special Training (BeST). Every year, our bioengineering students will be enrolled for the training which prepares them better for the real working experience in the future.
Other than that, BiotechCorp also provides the route for the Bioengineering Technology Section of MICET to collaborate with BioNexus status companies to provide our technical know-how to the problem solving in the industries.
2. CJ Bio Malaysia
As one of the leading biotechnology company in the world, CJ Bio which originated from South Korea has expanded the company wings to South East Asia (SEA). Malaysia has been selected as the base for production of L-methionine to cater the SEA region, where the plant has been developed in Kerteh, Terengganu at the Eastern Peninsular of Malaysia. The Bioengineering Technology Section of MICET has been given the privilege to train the local talents for CJ Bio, the Biotechnology Apprenticeship Programme. In 2013, 80 staffs from CJ Bio had been trained under Bioengineering MICET for two months to develop their knowledge for the biotechnology operations of CJ Bio plant. It has been set yearly for CJ Bio to send their staffs for training here in MICET to hone their knowledge.
3. Melaka Biotechnology Corporation (Melbio)
Melbio is one of the main players of biotechnology here in Melaka. The Bioengineering Technology Section of MICET has been in collaborations with Melbio, where we send our students regularly for technical and industrial trainings.
4. You Dun Chao Healthcare Products Sdn. Bhd.
As the main producer of Daun Belalai Gajah (Sabah Snake Grass) herb for healthcare products, You Dun Chao has collaborated together with the Bioengineering Technology Section of MICET in performing R&D for the added value products of the herbs.
