These high-quality automotive components will serve as invaluable tools for hands-on learning experiences, enabling students to gain practical skills and knowledge essential for their future careers.

Moreover, Aisin Philippines and Riken Motor Sales will organize Expertise Workshops in both face-to-face and hybrid formats. These workshops will offer valuable insights into the automotive industry, supplementing traditional classroom learning with practical knowledge and industry expertise.
