The University Malaysia of Computer Science and Engineering (UNIMY) is adding Fusionex to its list of global industry partners who will collaborate with its efforts in bridging students and industry experts to produce specially-trained and market-ready computing professionals. At the same time, Fusionex aims to provide industry inputs into UNIMY’s academic programmes.
Through the collaboration, Fusionex will offer UNIMY students internship placements, industry supervision and industry-based final-year projects that will provide students with the opportunity to experience an international working environment.
Apart from that, UNIMY students will also gain access to Fusionex GIANT, which is an advanced end-to-end analytics platform. GIANT is able to streamline, analyse and allow users to derive real-time insights from the extracted data.
Chen Keat Ming, Vice President of Fusionex said: “The demand for data professionals has increased greatly and this endeavour is an excellent opportunity to give real-world, hands-on experience for data technology to students. The fruition of this partnership with UNIMY will go a long way towards the target of Malaysia achieving 20,000 data professionals nationwide by 2020.”
This collaboration also shows Fusionex’s determination to help UNIMY in its quest to drive the grooming of big data analytics leaders for Malaysia’s future. On top of that, the collaboration engages students in a conducive and beneficial learning/teaching community where students learn from experts in the know.
