In his speech, Jorge Vieira highly appreciated all the management members and professors of the University of Macau and the tutors of CEM for their effort to devote their time which contribute to the success of this program. As a socially responsible company with the mission to cultivate a pool of local talents for the future of Macau, CEM has been actively supporting the education and development of the new generation through different ways. Other than offering the Summer Training Program every year, CEM also grants scholarships for the best graduates majoring in Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering respectively.
Since 1991, CEM has started utilizing the Summer Training Program to nurture Macao’s future talents. This long-term cooperative partnership provides an opportunity for UM students to step into CEM every summer to broaden their views and apply their academic knowledge in their work. On the other hand, this energetic young team also livens up summer in CEM!
