Twenty-five students chosen from the Culinary Arts, Food and Beverage Operations, Hospitality Studies, Nutrition and Food Management, and Computer Systems Engineering programmes, will spend three months at the Crane Residential Resort, Barbados.
The ten selected for six weeks in Guyana, were chosen from the Electrical Engineering Technology, Computer Systems Engineering, and Electronic Engineering Technology programmes. They will be placed at Banks DIH Limited and Guyana Power and Light, Demerara Distilleries, and the Guyana Sugar Corporation.
This is the fourth year of the internship programme that United Insurance has sponsored insurance coverage for the students. The insurance coverage valued at $36,000 each, covers medical expenses, personal accidents and loss of deposits.
