The Malaysian government has recently announced the introduction of three new bodies called the HELP University, International Islamic University Malaysia and Tunku Abdul Rahman University which will be the leading in the country to teach learners whatever they need to know on the digital platform and the use of digital tech.
This was commented on by the Deputy Director General of the Ministry of Education, Dr. Mohamed Salleh bin Jaafer by saying, “The Premier Digital Tech Institutions initiative will ensure Malaysians will be ready for the fields of Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Digital Marketing. Talent is key for Malaysia to succeed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. As the world moves rapidly from IR4.0 to now even discussing IR 5.0, it is critical that we prepare skilled local talents for future jobs. In 2018, Premier Digital Tech Institutions’ graduates recorded a 95 percent employability rate, earning a salary 1.5 times higher than the national average. It is clear that we are able to better prepare our talents by bringing together the best of educational institutions and industry players.”
