Job Training Program
Every year, Mitrais facilitates job training programs for university students from various universities. The students spend around two months in one of Mitrais’ offices to experience professional life in an IT company. They do various software engineering tasks and take away many lessons from Mitrais’ professionals.
University students are keen to get first hand experience of the IT industry. Some of them come to Mitrais and gain practical knowledge of the industry directly from Mitrais’ managers. Mitrais welcomes these study excursion which usually takes place every three months.
Indonesian Vocational School Program
Mitrais is highly supportive of Indonesian education. A great way to show that support is by welcoming students from vocational schools or information technology institutes for on-the-job IT training. We have had students from Lembaga Pendidikan Bali Asia (LPBA) and Sekolah Tinggi Ilmu Komputer (STIKOM).
Career Planning Open Lectures
Mitrais’ reputation as a leading Indonesian IT company has led to a new initiative – helping students who are soon to graduate to get a ‘real world’ view of the IT industry. Mitrais sends it's professionals to deliver open lectures on career planning. Students at Yogyakarta’s Santa Dharma University were the first to reap the benefits of this career planning open lecture.
As part of supporting Indonesian education, Mitrais has supported the improvement of curriculums in various universities. Universitas Udayana, STIKOM Bali, STEI-ITB are some of the universities that Mitrais has supported in this way.
From 2002 until 2013, Mitrais has hosted a comparative study program involving participants from the International Training Course on Information Technology Education Methodology (ITC) in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), a Japanese government technical cooperation agency and the Electronic Engineering Polytechnic Institute of Surabaya (EEPIS). The participants of these training courses come from different countries in Asia and Africa.
