The congratulation greetings were presented by Rural Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Mohd Harun in a ceremony prior to the students’ departure at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) here today.
Speaking to reporters after the ceremony, Rina said all the students had completed their three-year Diploma in Mechanical Engineering and Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering course in the country.
