Malaysian Degree Courses to Drive Digital Advancements

Demanding companies and firms always have an eye for excellent graduates who possess great grades and a keen sense of digital technologies.

As the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0) makes its way in Malaysia and draws its own path in the human resource industry, students and graduates are required to grasp the needed skills and knowledge to survive the competitive world.

The technology landscape in Malaysia has been booming as more digital technologies are being adopted by firms to keep pace with IR4.0. Graduates with in-depth knowledge on technology stand a brighter chance to be employed upon graduation.

Universiti Malaya, for instance, offers various courses majoring in computer science which allows Malaysian students to enhance their technological skills knowledge.

Bachelor of Computer Science in Artificial Intelligence programme is a pioneering programme which is designed to help in computer knowledge development that imitates human intelligence.

Professor Datin Dr. Sameem Abdul Kareem, dean of the UM Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, affirms that the programmes offered at the university integrate skills such as analytical thinking, problem-solving and proficiency in data mining.

Students will be equipped with the necessary skills and will be better prepared to be a part of the digital workforce.

UCSI University, too. is paving its way by introducing a Bachelor of Computer Engineering in Artificial Intelligence programme early next year. The programme focuses on promoting the teaching of autonomous robots, system integration, Internet of Things, cybersecurity and big data.

Instead of learning these skills through lectures and notes, the students will be exposed to practical learning at computer engineering and AI laboratories. Through experiential learning sessions, it is believed that students can adopt a better understanding of AI as compared to conventional learning practices.

UCSI Faculty of Engineering, Technology and Built Environment dean Associate Professor Dr. Ang Chun Kit confirmed that AI graduates are in high demand and hence the programmes at UCSI are suitable options for students to be the frontrunners in the digitally transforming world.

Universiti Sains Malaysia collaborated with MDEC to offer a Bachelor of Management (Business Analytics) to students who wish to pursue data analytics as their dream job.

Experts and MDEC are looking into providing sufficient details on the big data skills that are required for graduates to be industry-ready individuals.

As computing and analytics skills are a must for IR 4.0, students are given challenging business-related tasks to be managed and to apply suitable data-driven decisions to them

The emphasis on IR 4.0 in Malaysia signals MDEC and the nation’s learning institutions to promote valuable insights for students and to increase students’ employability.

Many firms are looking for graduates with hybrid talents to help them fulfil organisational goals. Hybrid talent is a combination of skills such as computing and analytics that is integrated with soft skills such as leadership, adaptability and entrepreneurship.

This set of skills encourages active learning among students and drives them to continue re-skilling and up-skilling themselves to meet the increasing demands of the IR 4.0 business environment.

Bachelor of Business Analytics (BBA) will be introduced by Sunway Business School in early January next year and this is the perfect programme for students to explore the components of IR 4.0.

Malaysian students must remain competitive and incorporate critical thinking, producing creative ideas, and revolutionize traditional approaches that can help to resolve the business issues in the recent Big Data Revolution era.

Students can also apply for a Bachelor of Computer Science in Data Science offered by UM as it aims to produce analytical-driven graduates.

Its programme combines hard skills such as programming, statistics, and modelling with soft skills such as critical thinking. The combination of these skills aims to prepare students with knowledge of cutting-edge technology and data analysis algorithms.
