Singapore Polytechnic (SP) and Pratt & Whitney have signed a memorandum of understanding under which the school’s students will have the opportunity to enter an overseas industrial training program at Pratt & Whitney’s customer training center in Beijing, China. The six-week program is designed to give students practical training as aircraft maintenance engineers. Pratt & Whitney’s customer training center in Beijing, a joint venture with China Aviation Supply Holding Company, opened in 2002 and serves more than 400 students annually. It offers aerospace courses and hands-on training opportunities for aviation professionals in the Asia-Pacific region. According to a spokesman for the school, SP had a group of 30 students who underwent training with Pratt & Whitney in Beijing last September. That number has been increased to 39 for the current program. SP has also recently launched the common engineering program for the academic year 2010/2011, during which students will experience basic multi-disciplinary engineering and will be exposed to mechanical equipment, biomedical instruments and electrical circuitry.
