Do they allow  attachment for someone who has been there during plant installation ......"?
Can they? (2014-06-09)

This is a good idea, but it is important that they consider taking our students for attachments, especially those undertaking HRM, plant Engineering and also environmental sciences, it is a good venture.

I hope they should also include applied chemistry students in this programme as they have Chem-lab.
