Bosch, a leading global supplier of technology and services, in partnership with the National University of Laos’ Faculty of Engineering officially inaugurated Bosch Maker of Tomorrow Inspirational Learning Space Building.
The official inauguration of the project to transform an unused water tank into a creative learning space took place at the Faculty of Engineering, National University of Laos in Vientiane Capital on Nov 15.
The inauguration took place in the presence of Prof. Dr Somsy Gnorphanxay, President of the National University of Laos and Mr Andre De Jong, Managing Director of Bosch in Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar.
The building was the brainchild of three young engineering students, Anousone Sisouthum, Souphaxay Xayavong and Nusin Nammaninin who transformed an unused water tank into a creative and sustainable learning space.
Maker of Tomorrow aims to foster creative problem-solving among the youths. It is the heart of Bosch’s commitment to improve the quality of life, environment and society, said Prof. Dr Somsy.
Through this project, our students have been able to showcase their potential, harness their creativity, and gain new skill sets in developing an innovative solution for the betterment of the community within our campus, said Prof. Dr Somsy.
We are heartened to see the tremendous growth in terms of competencies and confidence within our students in their journey throughout this project. We are honour to work alongside Bosch and look forward to more collaboration in the future to nurture the next generation of engineering in Laos, added Prof. Dr Somsy.
The Maker of Tomorrow is an initiative, first of its kind, and introduced by Bosch only in Laos.
The goal behind this initiative is to provide students with a unique opportunity to combine theoretical knowledge and apply what they have learnt in the classroom, stretch their imagination and collaborate to solve real-life challenges.
The world that we live in today is rapidly changing and competitive. In such time, a relevant in-depth preparation for the working is imperative. Hence, combining technology-enabled learning, an authentic learning environment and skills development is more than ever, important, said Mr Andre De Jong.
Through this project, we hope more and more students are inspired and empowered to dream big, pursue their passion, and to never stop acquiring skills as to develop their fullest potential by succeeding in their education, realizing their career aspiration and in turn, help make a difference for a prosperous future in Laos, said Mr Andre De Jong.
