Also, to train them with a new exposure in every aspect of career life, including social and networking, communication, leadership, culture, interaction, and actual working environment. Recently, iHumEn has accepted seven industrial training students from various universities, including the Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) and Politeknik Ibrahim Sultan.

It cultivates the students’ leadership ability and gives them the responsibility to execute and perform the given task.

For iHumEn, it is believed that the industrial training program could train the students to gain knowledge through hands-on observation, job execution, and the feel of the actual working environment.
