The program extends opportunities to university students throughout the country to gain an internship experience with Mitsubishi Motors Thailand, the leading automotive manufacturer and exporter from Thailand. The internships enable knowledge acquisition at the company’s cutting-edge automotive production plant and application of theoretical skills while also being supported by expert engineers in preparation for their future career.

Mr. Eiichi Koito, President & CEO of Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co., Ltd., said, “Mitsubishi Motors Thailand has reached its 60th anniversary this year and we have committed to improve society consistently through several projects under our social contribution commitment vision, ‘To Contribute and Grow with Thai society’. We established ‘Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Foundation (MMTF)’, which serves as a non-profit organisation, with the aim to benefit society through three focus areas, namely, ‘environment’, ‘health’, and ‘education and morality’, in order to enhance Thai people’s quality of life and drive Thai society to achieve sustainable development. ‘MMTh Talent Internship Program’ is an initiative under the pillar of ‘education and morality’ which offers opportunities to university students throughout the country to obtain first-hand experience from real-world working life during their semester break with Mitsubishi Motors Thailand. It is another source of pride for us, as we can participate in producing high-potential youths for Thai society.”

“We believe that it is a great opportunity for students. Students have been encouraged to learn by doing, equipping them with knowledge and know-how about automotive business within the actual field and on site. We are confident that all students joining this internship program with Mitsubishi Motors Thailand cultivate valuable knowledge and have a quality work experience. They increase their potential and take something that can be built on in their future career. It will be our greatest pleasure to welcome them back as full-time personnel once they graduate,” added Mr. Koito.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tawatchai Charinpanitkul, Associate Dean Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University, stated “Thank you, Mitsubishi Motors Thailand and Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Foundation (MMTF), for the educational support given to the Thai students. Student development cannot not be achieved if we lack support from the industrial sector. All these students have actively practiced and further developed their skills. They have prepared themselves for their future career consistent with the needs of industrial sector.” 

Ms. Sawita Hawiriya, a third-year mechanical engineering student, Thammasat University said, “I was determined to take my internship at Mitsubishi Motors Thailand, because I would like to leverage what I gain from the program to benefit my Mechatronics Club. The project that involves developing sensor line follower robots with sensors is particularly relevant. I would like to thank the company for organising the program, as it allowed us to learn the realities of working life and become more useful. If possible, I would love to work for Mitsubishi Motors Thailand once I graduate.”

MMTh Talent Internship Program is organised under the concept of “Ambition to Rise,” first launched in 2019. So far, 36 students have joined the program and 32 projects proved successful. In the MMTh Talent Internship Program 2021, June-July batch, there were nine students from five leading universities; Chulalongkorn University, Thammasat University, Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology, Thammasat University, King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, and King Mongkut's University of Technology North Bangkok.
