“The welding programme at IBTE consists of students studying about the welding process in theory (then) to practical (followed by) the inspection of the practical result. Velosi comes in the picture as they contribute to developing the welding programme from an industrial-based input,” said IBTE Sultan Bolkiah Campus Public Relations Officer Hjh Nurhafizah Hj Md Zaki.
