UTAR officially inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Malaysian Mobile Content Providers Association (MMCP) at UTAR Sungai Long Campus on 24 May 2019. The MoU was intended to offer employment opportunities for qualified graduating understudies of UTAR with groups of companies under MMCP.

On top of that, the objective of this MoU is to offer internship opportunities for UTAR undergraduates to take an interest in the areas of work pertinent to their program of study. Most importantly, the MoU also aims to cooperate in the field of programme development and review, whereby MMCP will from time to time provide advice to UTAR on the industry requirements of graduates in various fields of study.

Prof Chuah welcomed the delegates with his speech.
I believe today’s collaboration with MMCP will set us on the right path in moving ahead into the future. Our students can seek attachment and internship with MMCP for the relevant exposure while our staff may also discuss and exchange ideas on relevant curriculum and training modules. I was told that MMCP had the intention to recruit our students during their last visit. I am looking forward to having a fruitful collaboration between MMCP and UTAR. A university should not be like an ivory tower, we should engage more with the industry so that our students will know what is happening in the world. Therefore, we always welcome the industry players to be part of our Industry Advisory to ensure our students are equipped with the right knowledge and experience that suits the demand of their future career.

Johnson Lim said, “Today’s MoU signing ceremony has witnessed a historical moment for MMCP. The MoU signing is not only important for university students to obtain the opportunity to learn from the industrial players, but it is also equally important for the industrial players as well. This is because, as an industry player, we can learn from the students’ creativity and their different point of views, especially on mobile technology. It is also very important for a student to be well-prepared before they enter the workplace. I would like to thank UTAR for this opportunity. I am anticipating and looking forward to developing a long-term collaboration with UTAR.
