Recently, four instructors obtained the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Instructor Certification, while four others were certified as Sun Java Programmer instructors. Among them, one received Sun Micro Java Instructor Certification.
“Only certified instructors will be teaching, and they are committed to working closely with the students,” said School of Computer Sciences assistant manager Michael Lee.
He added that the college, which is also a Cisco Local Academy and an authorised Sun Education Centre, has developed a broad and complete curriculum that covers the main parameters of computer sciences.
“The goal is not to teach students how to use current computer technology, but rather to educate them so that they learn, understand and apply these skills. The knowledge they acquire enables them to design and build computer technology in the future,” he said.
CCNA certified professionals can install, configure and operate LAN, WAN, and dial access services for small networks.
“Earning a Sun Java Programmer certification provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for object-oriented programming of advanced Java applications. Our certified instructors will ensure that students have the necessary skills to efficiently meet the challenges of market demands. We are looking forward to having Microsoft, Linux and Oracle as our partners very soon,” said Lee.
The party was organised by the Stamford College Student Services Department to welcome the arrival of new students.
Prior to the event, members of the organising committee dressed in 1970s attire roamed the campus with promotional materials and set up mini promotional booths at its Klang Valley centres to garner ticket sales.
“A college orientation programme for new students would not be complete without an Orientation Night, a night set aside for music and partying. If it were at all possible, I am quite sure that the majority of us who experienced that era would gladly jump into a time machine and get transported back in time. We want to bring back the memorable 70s era for our students,” said organising committee adviser Paul Linus.
Tickets were priced at RM70 per person, inclusive of dinner, richly costumed performances and lucky draws.
