Joint projects with signing of MoU

MONASH University Malaysia and its industrial partner, Freescale Semiconductor Malaysia Sdn Bhd, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) recently to formalise and expand their collaboration in education, research and development.  

The agreement provides a long-term framework for both parties to work on joint research and development projects besides intensifying existing initiatives in staff, student and curriculum development. 

Through its industrial link with Freescale, Monash has developed a new elective course in electronic test technology for final-year engineering students.

The collaboration with Freescale Semiconductor has allowed Monash students to explore industry-related topics for their final-year undergraduate projects and postgraduate theses. 

Monash pro vice-chancellor Prof Merilyn Liddell said the co-operation had been beneficial in providing industry exposure and training to Monash students. 

“Freescale also benefits as it now has access to a ready pool of employable graduates,” she added. Prof Liddell, who signed the agreement together with the company's Product Engineering and Test Technology operations manager Dr Victor Lai, said the collaboration would further contribute to the university’s research programmes.
