University Malaysia of Computer Science and Engineering (UNIMY) signed a collaboration partnership agreement with multi-award winning IT software group Fusionex recently to open up opportunities for UNIMY students in the field of big data analytics.
The MOU was signed by UNIMY vice chancellor Professor Datuk Dr. Khairuddin Ab Hamid and Fusionex vice president Chen Keat Ming and senior manager Tan Sean Khong at UNIMY campus in Putrajaya.
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.
UNIMY students will also gain access to Fusionex GIANT. This advanced end-to-end analytics platform has the ability of streamlining, analysing and allowing users to derive real-time, game changing insights from the extracted data which can be displayed in the form of easy to understand visuals.
“We would like to extend our thanks and gratitude and appreciation to Fusionex for giving UNIMY the opportunity to embark on a promising partnership in the field of Data Science and Big Data Analytics and other related areas of common interest,” said Prof. Datuk Dr. Khairuddin Ab Hamid.
He said Fusionex, being the pioneering and the largest and fastest growing technology company in the region, was now at the forefront of Big Data Analytic industry not only in Malaysia but the world over, and has made the country proud and well respected in the field.
“We believe this partnership, along with all our partnerships with other industry players, will positively impact the quality of our future digital leaders, in particular those who graduate from UNIMY.
“It is precisely this reason why UNIMY places so much emphasis on industry-learning for our students, knowing that there is no better teacher than gaining hands-on experience and learning from those already impacting the ever-changing digital economy,” he said.
Fusionex vice president Chen Keat Ming said: “We are very excited to enter into this industry partnership with UNIMY. The demand for data professionals has increased greatly and this endeavor 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 meeting the target of 20,000 data professionals nationwide by 2020.”
