Malaysian Meister Program


Adapted from the German Meister (meaning Master Craftsman) program, the Malaysian Meister Program (MMP) is designed to upskill the existing precision machining and engineering workforce. Students are trained through a two-pronged approach where training is conducted at both the workplace and training institution in actual work conditions under the guidance of competent coaches and classroom trainers.
