MIT has been awarded with a special grant by the Government of Japan to establish and strengthen vocational and engineering laboratories related to ongoing vocational and engineering programs of MIT. Referred grant is from the ongoing Grant Assistance for Grass-Roots Human Security Projects (GGP) of Government of Japan which is established to assist NGOs and local public authorities in developing countries in responding to various development needs in a prompt and complete manner. The grant was handed over by the Ambassador of Japan to the Maldives, Ms.Keiko Yanai on 7th March, 2021 at a ceremony held in MIT.
Much needed vocational and engineering training equipment are expensive and MIT management believes that the planned development and strengthening of labs will improve and enhance knowledge and skills development of the students of MIT.
We express our sincere gratitude to the Government of Japan for providing such a generous offer that will not only improve and enhance training quality of MIT programs, but will also facilitate development of highly skilled engineering graduates to take up challenging roles across Maldivian industries. MIT management further explains that the funds released through the grant will be used to procure vocational and engineering laboratory equipment that are aligned to the programs and qualification offered through MIT. Referred laboratory equipment will be used to strengthen existing vocational and engineering labs, while the newly procured equipment will also facilitate establishment of new labs that are vital and important for the expansion of MIT programs and courses.
