SEGi University continues demonstrating its commitment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 4: Quality Education and SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, by hosting impactful events bridging the gap between education and industry. On 3 April 2024, in partnership with Kakimotor and Liqui Moly, SEGi University held a Career Talk titled “A Talk with Liqui Moly – The Technology Behind Liqui Moly Solutions for Vehicle Maintenance” at Auditorium A. This event gave students invaluable insights into the automotive and lubricants industries, enhancing their career readiness and technical knowledge.

The Career Talk attracted many students eager to learn about the cutting-edge solutions developed by Liqui Moly to enhance vehicle performance and longevity. Liqui Moly, a leader in automotive lubricants, shared their innovative approaches to vehicle maintenance, providing students with practical tips and tricks to extend the lifespan of their vehicles. According to the International Energy Agency, regular maintenance and efficient vehicle operation can significantly reduce carbon emissions, contributing to environmental sustainability (IEA, 2021).

Students were given the unique opportunity to delve into the intricacies of automotive technology, exploring the science behind advanced lubricants and their impact on vehicle efficiency. This hands-on learning experience aligns with SEGi University’s focus on practical education, ensuring that students are well-equipped with the skills needed in the rapidly evolving automotive sector. The International Labour Organization highlights that bridging the skills gap is crucial for economic growth and employment, making events like these essential for student development (ILO, 2021).

The collaboration with Kakimotor and Liqui Moly underscores SEGi University’s dedication to forging strong industry partnerships that benefit students and the wider community. By providing a platform for industry leaders to share their expertise, SEGi ensures that its students are exposed to real-world applications of their academic knowledge, fostering a deeper understanding of their chosen fields.
