MSC Malaysia Industry-Academia Collaborations

To meet the demands of at least 100,000 jobs by 2010 in MSC Malaysia, more sustainable long-term measures are needed to scale the development of industry relevant K-Workers. One such measure is to structure and formalise the Industry Academia Collaboration between Companies and the Universities with a view to produce the industry relevant K-Workers for those companies.

The main objective is to develop the Universities as anchor suppliers to cater to the demands of the companies that have large employment of fresh graduates. The IAC will provide the following:

  • Industry-relevant graduates are produced in mass quantities because the curriculum would be enhanced by industry modules.
  • Structured practical attachment for undergraduates through mentored real-life projects by the industry
  • Enhancement of skills of faculty members in the delivery of industry-relevant curriculum.

The IAC will comprise of the following activities in its effort to achieve the objectives above. These are:

  • Train-the-Trainer programs at Collaborating Universities
  • Collaboration to embed industry-relevant modules into the University curriculum
  • Collaboration on providing final year students with industry projects
