FOLLOWING the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU), INTI International University & Colleges (INTI) will continue working with Dell Technologies in improving student outcomes, modernising the information technology (IT) environment on campus, and producing innovative faculty research and better operational efficiency.
The MoU, aimed at strengthening the long-standing relationship between the two parties which began 15 years ago, was signed by INTI chief executive officer Chong Kok Wai and Dell Malaysia managing director Pang Yee Beng.
Chong said INTI’s goal is to produce highly employable graduates who are work-ready.
“We look beyond providing our graduates with just a degree, but also aim to prepare them to contribute to the wider society.
“We do this through extensive collaboration with employers. INTI has over 450 industry partners, each navigating students through their respective expertise,” he said in a press release last month.
Chong shared that Dell has been instrumental in helping INTI better align its curriculum with the demands and requirements of the computing and IT industry, besides lending support and expertise in various activities and programmes since 2008.
“This memorandum will not only benefit our graduates, but also provide an incentive for Dell employees, spouses and children as they will be entitled to special corporate discounts for any of INTI’s working adult programmes,” he added.
Representing Dell Malaysia, Pang said the partnership has stood the test of time.
“We continue to draw fresh ideas and new blood into the organisation through collaborations with INTI. We hope we continue to be the choice for INTI to develop and train young talents relevant to the economy,” he said.
Pang added that to foster student success, institutions need to seek fresh learning approaches that reinvigorate classrooms through innovative and immersive teaching methodologies that increase collaboration and student engagement.
“The IT boom and digital economy is here to stay. Everyone is using technology to differentiate themselves and their businesses.
“Students are picking tech-savvy colleges and workplaces that can advance their learning, while offering them a compelling degree track,” he said.
