Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) hosted 36 Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) students from University Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) on 24 July 2019 at the Bandar Malaysia MRT Information Centre.
The students who were taking a Capstone Design course, were led by UNITEN College of Engineering, Electrical Power Lecturer, Miss Lee Hui Jing.
