Polytechnic Education in Mauritius.
Kasenally, Kursheed Ali
This paper provides an overview of education for middle-management-level technicians at the Diploma Level in Mauritius. It describes the educational program provided by these three institutions: the Lycee Polytechnique Sir Guy Forget, Flacq; the Maharishi Dayanand Polytechnic; and the Institut Polytechnique de Rose Hill. It focuses on their courses, numbers of graduates, financial support, and recruitment practices. The paper concludes that the main challenge for Mauritius will be to prepare the stakeholders (including government, employees, workers, the institutions, and the trainers) for the technology-based work environment that will become necessary if Mauritius is to retain its competitiveness in the changing world market. The polytechnics aim to achieve this objective by continuously revising their training policies. (KC)
