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 5 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.
