FNU Partners With Housing Authority to Develop Engineers

Housing authority will now be providing practical training for Fiji National University (FNU) students at their various project sites.

This comes after a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between FNU and Housing Authority at FNU Nasinu Campus in Suva yesterday.

The partnership with the Housing Authority recognises the intention of FNU to provide quality education and opportunity for industrial attachment at Housing Authority. This is meant for all FNU students who are enrolled in the areas of Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering, Land Surveying, Architecture and Quantity Surveying.

FNU vice-chancellor, Professor Nigel Healey said upon completion of the attachment, the Housing Authority will issue a Certificate of Industrial Attachment to all FNU students who have successfully completed the duration of their attachment.

“The University’s core business is to provide Fiji and the Pacific’s Human Resource needs by delivering the highest quality and standards of teaching and training and this can only be achieved by ensuring that graduates have the right knowledge, skills, are creative, innovative and have the necessary attributes for life,” he said.

Housing Authority board director Nesbitt Hazelman said the MOU will allow the Housing Authority to provide hands-on learning experience to students in certain areas.

“This is part of social obligation for the Housing Authority, to train the students and prepare them to join the work-force as they are the future leaders of this country.

“The Housing Authority believes this effort will deepen professional education for FNU students and will also help bring the theory to life, meaning the students will be able to apply the knowledge, concepts and skills in a real working environment,” Mr Hazelman said.

The MOU will encourage individual students to participate in an industrial attachment for a duration of six months in the areas of:

Civil Engineering

Structural engineering

Land surveying

Architecture

Quantity surveying

The MOU is valid for a period of five years.
