We receive support in terms of budget and personnel from deans and lecturers. Everyone concerned is dedicated to the work. Even the students, when they return, they assist younger students. After the program has been carried out for many years, we are certain that the students have acquired skills and expertise from the practicum enterprises. The 4 months there enable them to apply the knowledge from classroom in their work. The workplace receives new innovations from the students, while the students learn the working technologies from the workplace. Therefore, I believe that these students are qualified for their future occupation. I’m grateful to the administrators’ policy that supports this program and I thank all of the deans, advisors, supervisors, students, workplaces, and staff members who are the key mechanisms for the success of this program until we receive the prizes, the prizes that belong to everyone on KKU. I promise the development will continue.”
