On April 18th
, 2013, the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) organized a field trip to Faisal Jassim Trading Co. (L.L.C.) – FJTCO, located in Dubai Investment Park (DIP), Jebel Ali.
Nadia Jones, FJTCO Regional Marketing & Business Development Manager, welcomed the MIE group and gave an informative presentation about the company’s history, specializations, and projects. The group toured FJTCO premises and was given detailed descriptions of production lines in each department.
At the end of the tour, the MIE group met with Eng. Raphael Khlat, the company’s CEO, who was generous enough to tell visitors about his story and how he ended up owning such a successful company.
The visit is yet another effort to introduce mechanical and industrial engineering students to various local industries and businesses with a view to building a collaborative relationship with the industry and enhancing students’ job prospects.
