ICAM to work with John Moores University. DRB-Hicom are education friendly.

DRB-Hicom Group Lotus new owners officially signed a franchise agreement between their college ICAM and Liverpool UK based University John Moores.
The group takes education seriously. The college is private not state owned. It will soon have University status.

Meanwhile DRB-Hicom, through International College of Automotive (ICAM), yesterday signed an international collaborative agreement with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) to conduct a 2+1 twinning programme for a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) degree in Manufacturing Systems Engineering on a franchise basis.
Under the programme, students will complete their initial two years at ICAM before progressing to LJMU in Britain for their final year.
Mohd Khamil said the collaboration was part of a well-planned roadmap that the group had developed to expedite the process of upgrading ICAM to university status.

Obviously, I have been in contact with the powers that be. As a private college it can do a lot more from a global perspective than a state owned college.
Education is referred to as the Golden key in many DRB-Hicom press releases.
I hope they see all the synergies, and exploit them.
Time will tell.
Here is my TV interview. My focus is now Johor, but it is still relevant.
