The following IHRD Issues were identified from SUCs during the meeting: lack of adequate opportunities for dialogues between industry-academe in manufacturing sectors, lack of opportunities for faculty members to be trained and for learning along the latest technologies in the industry sectors, there were few or no result at all in terms of collab-orative research between the academe and company partners. Moreover it was found out during the survey that there is a need to learn practical skills for on-site use, acquire soft-skills such as work ethics, attitudes, and inter-personal communication skills among the OJT students, stand-ardization of OJT in educational and training institutions should be strengthened, promotion of understanding and industry spe-cifically on corporate culture and career paths.
