‘Engineering Career-Oriented Fair 2011- 2nd Edition’


I inaugurated the ‘Engineering Career-Oriented Fair 2011 - 2nd Edition’, organised by the University of Mauritius in collaboration with the Engineering Society. The Engineering Career-Oriented Fair 2011 provides students with a platform to plan their future careers and to communicate with major players of their respective industries. I urge all the students to make full use of the many programmes and schemes available, and seize the opportunity to venture and decide on their future.
