BSP scholars make the news~

35 BSP scholars have jobs waiting for them

Saturday, September 4, 2010
MORE Bruneians will be joining Brunei Shell Petroleum Sdn Bhd (BSP), following the signing of contracts between 35 top students and BSP yesterday, which bond them to serve the company after they complete their studies.

Another four BSP scholars were each awarded a Lenovo netbook for scoring first-class honours in their respective degree courses ranging from Chemical to Mechanical Engineering.

Hj Zainal Abidin Hj Mohd Ali, BSP deputy managing director, expressed his happiness at having more Bruneians joining the company, and said that it was in line with His Majesty's efforts to develop the Sultanate's human resource capabilities.

The BSP exec said the number of Bruneians now working for BSP accounted for about 90 per cent of its workforce.

He reminded the scholars that continuous learning is a BSP creed and also urged the students to uphold the good name of Brunei by observing good behaviour and becoming a good ambassador for the country.

The scholars were accepted into various courses, ranging from physics, geology, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, mechatronics and petroleum engineering.

Among the scholars who returned home with first-class honour was Lim Jin Yang in Masters in Chemical Engineering at the University of Cambridge.

Lim said he had received a scholarship from his university, and will be returning to Cambridge end of this month to pursue his PhD before returning to Brunei to work with BSP.

Asked if BSP was his first choice when it comes to scholarship, the 22-year-old answer was "Yes".

"I think there is no better company in Brunei that can let me to put my studies into practice compared to BSP," said the scholar who was a student at Chung Hwa Middle School Bandar Seri Begawan before doing his International Baccalaureate with International School Brunei (ISB). "I could have got other scholarships, and one obvious choice would be with the Ministry of Education, but I think BSP will let me excel in the field of my studies."

Besides playing the violin and joining in activities of the Buddhist Society, Lim also founded the Brunei Society at his university.

"There are very few people applying for Cambridge in Brunei, and we want to encourage more applications from our fellow countrymen," he added.
