UCSI University and the digital technology and intelligence arm of a Chinese multinational technology company recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to introduce the cloud computing curriculum at UCSI University for its students and staff. The collaboration aims to further support the nation’s digital economy by empowering digital talents and tech professionals through professional cloud computing education.

Representatives from the tech company’s digital technology and intelligence arm together with representatives as well as the Director of the Institute of Computer Science and Digital Innovation (ICSDI) attended the Memorandum Exchange Ceremony at UCSI University.

As UCSI University has implemented IR 4.0 into all of its courses, it is critical for students and professors to stay current on industry trends and be prepared for the future working environment. As a result, the university has always strengthened its collaborations with prominent multinational firms, foreign institutions, and research institutes, UCSI University Vice-Chancellor said. He added that he is confident that by working with this industry partner, they will be able to prepare our students and lecturers for the digital cloud transition.

By leveraging the tech firm’s expertise in cloud technology and UCSI’s rich education resources, the collaboration aims to provide advanced knowledge and skillsets in cloud computing to university students and lecturers. Furthermore, as part of its Academic Empowerment Program (AAEP), the firm will guide, engage, and empower them as the next generation of IT and cloud professionals for a minimal cost.

The firm has been dedicated to providing the best-in-class cloud services to its customers, and they aim to deliver exactly these experiences to UCSI to help students and staff get the best learning resources in the industry so they can better seize the opportunities provided by the digital era.

In the future, the company hopes to work with its local partners to play a pivotal role in creating a sustainable pool of digital talent which would contribute to the digitalisation of the nation, the General Manager of Malaysia of the tech company’s cloud arm said.

Students and lecturers will also be able to get certifications after finishing the cloud computing programme as a result of this collaboration. They will have free access to the computing and e-learning resources on the firm’s cloud platform. As a result, not only students but also lecturers, will have extensive knowledge and will be able to help students through the digital transition, stated the UCSI University Vice-Chancellor.

UCSI University will also include the cloud arm’s Academy courses in its Institute of Computer Science and Digital Innovation programmes such as the Bachelor of Business Information Systems, Bachelor of Computer Science (Hons) Mobile Computing and Networking, Master of Technopreneurship, Master of Science in Computer Science, and more. In addition to the programmes, the two will co-organise seminars, workshops and training activities on cloud computing, security, and databases, among other topics.
