NURTURING THE FUTURE OF MALAYSIA
If national schools are where foundations are laid, institutes of higher learning are where these foundations are molded into industry-ready skills. This is the basis behind the launch of the Tech Talent @Institute of Higher Learning (IHL) initiative.
To ensure that future graduates are able to meet the nation’s digital economy demands, the Ministry of Education and MDEC designated 11 universities and five polytechnics as Premier Digital Tech Institutions. These academic institutions are capable of providing students with first-class theoretical and practical training, giving them a head start in the digital ecosystem.
