17/09/2021 01:38 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 15 -- Malaysian Technology Development Corporation (MTDC) today inked a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) to encourage more exchange of knowledge and experience in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0 (i4.0), between the two parties.

MTDC chief executive officer Datuk Norhalim Yunus said the collaboration aims to equip UNIMAS students and researchers with the necessary guidance, knowledge and skills for i4.0.

"MTDC, in its efforts and initiatives to support local i4.0 technologies, solutions and talent development, sees the signing of the MoU with UNIMAS as a strategic partnership in the areas of technology, entrepreneurship, advisory, student internship and graduate employment.

"The collaboration will also enable MTDC to collaborate with its ecosystem companies to start retrofitting centres in UNIMAS," he said in a virtual signing event today.

MTDC will work with 100 entrepreneurs who are students and researchers at UNIMAS by the first quarter of 2022. The MOU was signed between Norhalim and vice-chancellor of UNIMAS Professor Datuk Mohamad Kadim Suaidi, signalling cooperation between MTDC and the University Industry Centre (UnIC).

Mohamad Kadim said the collaboration is one of the initiatives towards achieving educational excellence among UNIMAS graduates by optimising resources from both parties to create opportunities and meet challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

"This is consistent with UNIMAS Strategic Plan 2021-2025 which focuses on the importance of collaboration with industries. The establishment of UnIC in 2020 is timely as the university has been given the responsibility by the state government to be one of the key institutions in enabling Sarawak’s vision towards achieving a developed state by 2030," he added.
