University of Cyberjaya introduces new programmes to meet the growing demands for talent in the 21st century.
IN the age of globalisation, it is crucial for graduates to possess skills for the 21st century in both their personal lives and careers.
These skills include creativity, problem-solving, communication, technology, and emotional intelligence. There are various ways to hone these skills – one way is through education in creative arts.
Malaysia Digital Economy Corp (MDEC) chief operating officer Mahadhir Aziz has also stated that the demand for creative multimedia talent is predicted to increase at a 7.59% annual pace.
In striving to promote holistic education alongside encouraging young people to pursue their dreams in the creative field, the University of Cyberjaya recently established its Faculty of Creative Art and Design with a total of six programmes.
These programmes have been designed to help students hone the right skill set for the 21st century.
The programmes include Diploma in Graphic Design, Diploma in Digital Creative Content, Diploma in 3D Animation, Bachelor of Multimedia (Hons) in 3D Animation, Bachelor in Creative Multimedia (Hons), and Bachelor of Art (Hons) in Graphic Design (Advertising).
To introduce students to the world of creative art and design, the university will proudly unveil new state-of-the-art facilities such as drawing studios, design studios, Mac labs, animation labs, photo and videography studios, a sound studio, and IT labs to create a dynamic learning environment.
Students will also be privy to cutting-edge Mac technology and Wacom tablets for animation, and have hands-on access to industry-standard tools such as Creative Cloud and Blender.
Faculty of Art and Design head Saladin Gelam Mohamed says, “The programmes that were designed for our Faculty of Creative Art and Design focus on preparing students for in-demand careers in the tech industry through cutting-edge design practices and real-world experience.”
“Creative Arts and Design programmes provide students with highly transferrable skills that are sought after by employers across various industries. In a world where innovation is paramount, the ability to think outside the box and envision novel solutions is a trait that sets individuals apart,” he added.
The University of Cyberjaya also recognises the need for those who want to upskill themselves in their career.
Thus, the university introduced its Doctor of Business Administration programme for those who want to become business leaders or experts in the field.
Doctoral students have the opportunity to explore the challenges facing business today, including corporate social responsibility, globalisation and managing change.
