Friday, 4th May 2018, along with a visit from Malaysia, SMKN 2 Bandung received a visit from PT. Karimun Sembawang Shipyard (PT.KSS), a company which focuses on shipping with more than 20 years’ experience that located in Kepulauan Riau, Indonesia. This visit was carried out on cooperation between SMKN 2 Bandung and PT. Asian Welding Specialist (PT. AWS).
Besides of making a visit, PT.KSS also gave a donation in the form of welding machines along with its equipment and consumable worth 12.000 Singapore dollars. It was symbolically handed over directly by the President Director of PT. KSS, Lim Wei Tat with Kiw Chee Siam (General Deputy of PT. KSS) and Eka Santoso (Human Resource Manager Assistant) to the Principal of SMKN 2 Bandung, Drs. Tatang Gunawan, M. MPd. that witnessed by Dina Septriana (The Director of PT. AWS) and Steve S. Snyder (Senior Welding Engineer of AWS) along with the students of SMKN 2 Bandung.
In the same day, PT. KSS also recruited welding engineer students from SMKN 2 as the workers who became the first pilot project of SENSE AWS that was guided directly by PT. AWS.
In the end, five students signed a working contract with PT. KSS in a meeting room of SMKN 2 Bandung. SMKN 2 Bandung should be grateful and proud since every graduate can work directly after graduation. Hopefully, this cooperation can be a motivation for other students and juniors to gain more achievements and to have a high learning motivation, and can continue to another chance. Thank you to PT. KSS for the donation and the recruitment and to PT. AWS for the cooperation.
