Don Bosco Institute plans to be entrepreneurial university

 DON Bosco Technical Institute (DBTI) plans to be an entrepreneurial university, says its president Fr Ariel Macatangay.

“Our vision is to become a university where we can help the students to help themselves”, he said.

He said Higher Education, Research Science and Technology Minister Don Polye was aware of the plan and would support it.

This was highlighted during a tour programme carried out by Remington Technology in partnership with Konica Minolta Australia at DBTI last Tuesday.

The tour included a visit to the Information Technology (IT) laboratories, Electrical Technology workshop, Electronics and Communication workshop and the Instrumentation Workshop.

Remington Group chief executive officer Peter Goodwin told The National the tour was an opportunity to see what institutions in PNG were engaged in and what drove young people to do them.

He said the guests were in PNG for the Innovation Summit

that was held last Friday, “which had not occurred for the past three years due to the Coronavirus pandemic”.

“The reason behind the tour is to give these guests what PNG is all about, sometimes bad news travels first, and people misunderstand the country.

“This was a chance for them to see all the good things PNG has to offer”, he said. Goodwin said that the

connection between RT and DBTI has been there for many years where Remington brings young school-leavers to do training with technical work.
