Malaysia’s Perusahaan Otomobil Nasional Bhd (Proton) is engaging engineers in universities to help the company in its research and development (R&D) efforts. Proton chief executive officer Tengku Datuk Mahaleel Tengku Ariff said the move would also help mould Malaysian engineers for the local automotive industry. “Proton, for its R&D programmes, is getting the cooperation of universities such as Universiti Malaya and International Islamic University Malaysia.
