BANGI, 5 October 2021- Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) fresh graduates stand a chance to join a 6-month live-in pilot program under the MIDA Assessment Development Centre (MDAC) HyTalent Programme.

MIDA signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with UKM, UTM, and UPM witnessed by YB. Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, Senior Minister and Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI).

“The MADC HyTalent Programme embodies the Twelfth Malaysian Plan (12MP) roadmap to develop and equip future talents with Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) skill sets that are important for them to keep pace with the rapid changes in technological advancement and meet industry demands.

“Through this strategic partnership, the Government anticipates a more skilled and diverse Malaysian workforce, particularly in the manufacturing sector as the Programme is uniquely structured to provide trainees with intensive leadership and technical training in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT),” said YB. Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.

The MADC HyTalent Programme syllabus is established in collaboration with local universities together with international and local industry players to bridge the gap between the supply of local engineers and the demand of the industry, especially in the field of IoT and IIOT.

It comprises 6-months live-in pilot programme combined with a 6-months internship duration to develop fresh graduates in a structured leadership and technical training to meet the needs of Malaysia’s industries.
