Total Malaysia – Commitment to Education
Total Malaysia has been a strong supporter of local educational activities. We believe that today’s current students are the future workforce generation. Below are some of our successful educational programs, and our efforts are still continuously ongoing;
Partnership with Local Universities
On December 16th 2014, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Total Oil Malaysia and University Malaya to strengthen the cooperation between both entities. University Malaya or UM is one of the oldest universities and most successful university in Malaysia. This MOU promotes and facilitates mutual exchange of education and projects, to benefit students, faculty members, research teams and industry professionals.
As well as University Malaya, Total has also been working with Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) since 2009. One of the major activities organized for UTP students is a program called ‘Integrated Week’. This program brings professional individuals from Total Professors Associates (TPA) to lecture on selected topics. TPA is a non-profit association fully supported by the Total Group, with the goal of building bridges between the oil industry and the academic circles, by providing professors, or experts, to deliver technical and business related presentations. This 4 day series of lectures often involved the attendance of more than 100 participants from UTP’s students, lecturers, and staff.
Participation of Asia Total Education Center Seminar
The Asia TOTAL Education Center (ATEC) is a seminar program that was formed in 2012 sponsored by Total Group. Annually ATEC gathers together professors and students from participating universities to exchange information and discuss selected topics and themes. Total Malaysia has been actively involved in ATEC by sponsoring professors and student delegates from our partner universities. The seminar discusses and explores ideas to benefit the company, promote academic roles, and to enhance the development and facilitation of industry needs.
