Stuttgart Auto and Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) will be working together to create awareness and promote interest among students in the study of automotive technology. Stuttgart Auto, part of the Eurokars Group of Companies, believes in giving back to the society and community around it. As a longstanding partner and contributor to the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, Eurokars Group pledges to continue its tradition of corporate social responsibility, and to contribute to the local community where possible.

Through this five-year partnership with the School of Engineering at Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Porsche Centre Singapore will provide internship placements for students and industrial attachment opportunities for staff of Ngee Ann Polytechnic to spend periods of time working in its offices. Stuttgart Auto will also endeavour to provide learning opportunities for Ngee Ann Polytechnic students and staff through the organization of industry talks, plant visits, engineering lectures, off-campus classes, and the donation of automotive parts or equipment to serve as teaching aids.

“We are most delighted to be part of this collaboration as this affirms our commitment to contributing to the society, especially students who are keen on automotive technology. We hope that the various joint activities will create a positive impact on students in their field of study,” said Mr Karsono Kwee, Executive Chairman of Eurokars Group of Companies.

\"We are very excited to work with Porsche to enhance the learning opportunities and expertise of our Mechanical Engineering students. Thanks to the partnership, our students will be exposed to the latest automotive technology, including the state-of-the-art engine systems driving Porsche\'s hybrid supercars,\" said Mr Peter Liang, the Director of Ngee Ann Polytechnic\'s Mechanical Engineering Division.
