A COMPREHENSIVE five-year plan to bolster the skills of engineers to better suit the job market is being developed by the Bahrain Society of Engineers (BSE).
As a result the BSE has formed an advisory committee for its training centre and another for its conferences and exhibitions.
The initiative is part of the society’s plans to provide more services to its members and affiliates as well as solidify its role as an incubator for engineers, said BSE information and media director Huda Sultan.
“The BSE has decided to form an advisory committee for the BSE Training Centre by laying down a comprehensive five-year plan comprising of provisions and organisation of a variety of training courses and programmes in all engineering spheres,” she said in a statement.
“We are working in line with the work plan of the current board of directors, which aims to strengthen the position of the BSE, being the oldest professional society in the Kingdom of Bahrain and also to shed light on needs of the engineering profession and also the labour market.”
The advisory committee for conferences and exhibitions, meanwhile, will be responsible for ensuring that significant issues affecting the field on a local and regional level will be discussed and are market related.
This committee held its first meeting during which it agreed to appoint Mohamed Khalil Al Sayed as chairman.
