Industry and academia in a joint effort

Aurobindo Malta, the Indian-owned pharma company which earlier this year inaugurated an expansion of its Malta plant, has entered into an agreement with the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) to provide students with practical training in the pharmaceutical industry. 

This move will help the company achieve its expansion plans which will see its workforce grow substantially over the next two years.

Aurobindo Malta Managing Director Frederick Schembri noted that the company always needed people who were specialised in applied sciences and that this requirement has acted as a driver for the current cooperation between Aurobindo and MCAST.

This agreement follows on the lines of what has been done in the past with various operators, as links between MCAST and industry have always been a priority for that institution.
