ExxonMobil Marine and the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS), a university in the field of science and technology in Indonesia, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to support Indonesian students looking for a career in the marine industry.
The relationship aims to develop a range of educational opportunities focused on some of international shipping’s most pressing technical issues, including emissions regulations and the use and development of specialized engine lubricants.
Both parties also aim to create activities that will help support the country’s wider maritime sector. Joint activities will be coordinated through the ITS Faculty of Marine Technology (Martech).
Our shared goal is to support students looking for a career in the maritime sector. Through proactive collaboration, we also intend to drive the development of the Indonesian shipping industry
said Mochamad Ashari, Rector of ITS.
Last year, as a first step, ExxonMobil revamped one of the classrooms to enhance student’s learning experience by creating a more supportive study environment. The formal inauguration of the new classroom was marked with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
I firmly believe that our shared vision and commitment to innovation will help to create the next generation leaders and innovators critical to the maritime sector’s future success
added Joanne Eu, Global Aviation & Marine Lubricants Director of ExxonMobil.
