We live in an amazing time with new technological advances every day! High speed mobile internet, adoption of big data analytics, cloud technology, digital currency, and robotics, are changing the way daily tasks are done. This isn’t a description of a glittering future, it’s happening now.
It has come to the point where artificial intelligence (AI) is now being called the next Industrial Revolution, and this does not come without the fear of a large human workforce losing their jobs and means of making a living.
But don’t panic! Instead of worrying about whether robots will be stealing your future job, what you SHOULD do is learn how to embrace it..
The good that will come out of this rapid adoption of technology are the new products and services, together with new tasks and jobs. Therefore, it is important for us to embrace digital technology to become employable for future careers.
Just like how International University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW) Chancellor Tan Sri Dr Tony Fernandes said recently that education in the 21st century is about embracing digital technology. Technology is moving rapidly and educators are required to keep up with the fast pace and endure it as part of their job.
It is imperative that students are equipped with ICT and collaborative skills and be interested in lifelong learning. It’s highly important too that students learn soft skills like critical, creative thinking, and communication skills, to survive in this ever-challenging world.
Fernandes urged, “Whether you are already in the public, private, or teaching sectors, or intend to be your own boss, I wish to share with you my famous quote: Believe the unbelievable, dream the impossible and never take no for an answer.”
That’s why where you get your education could change your fate. With all the technological advances in the world, IUMW is moving forward to offer programmes that are truly multi-mode and blended. They will put out new specialisations to catalyse Industry Revolution 4.0 that are addressed in relation to the Malaysia Education Blueprint for Higher Education 2015-2025.
It’s no secret that IUMW has a good track record of graduates obtaining their desired jobs upon completion of their studies. Within six months of graduation, 94% of their graduates were employed or enrolled in other academic programmes (Graduate Tracer Study, MOHE). Offering affordable good quality education and internationally recognised degrees that are relevant to various industries, it’s no wonder IUMW graduates are well-equipped to face the changing world.
The IUMW experience transforms students into lifelong learners, dedicated to service with knowledge, skills, and confidence to succeed domestically and internationally. Not to mention, they have tonnes of employment partners, including Avisena Specialist Hospital, BDO, BIZTRAK, Frost & Sullivan, Gleneagles, Media Prima, Siemens, The Alice Smith School, and Tourism Malaysia.
No more worrying about what to do when you finish your studies! We think it’s time for you to consider IUMW for your personal and career development. Lose your fear of fighting with robots and accomplish your dreams by visiting their Open Day from 29 till 31 March and 12 till 14 April, 10am to 5pm.
