Interns from UniKL MIAT are working as part of TRU teams currently based at customer locations and are working to provide device maintenance and field engineering support to these customers. This year’s internship, which is active February through August, accepted four students from UniKL MIAT and is expected to be available again in 2018. Interested applicants should be directed to UniKL MIAT.
