Colleges & Universities

We work with a number of colleges and universities in Malaysia to assist with upskilling of students to prepare them for the workplace. To date we have trained over 1,000 students and assisted them with employment.

There are three main thrusts to our work:

  1. Graduate Employability

    We are running our Certified IP Associate (CIPA) and Certified IP Engineer (CIPE) under a number of initiatives for upskilling of fresh graduates, including the GEMS2.0 and 3P programs. This provides a number of benefits to the graduate:

    • Programs have industry recognition
    • Professional qualification integrated to academic programs to build hands-on skills in addition to academic knowledge
    • Provides graduates with an edge, making them more employable
    • Provides a career route for working professionals to update or develop their relevant skills in new areas for career advancement

    Feedback from the programs is consistently excellent with students highlighting the troubleshooting and problem solving attributes as the most enjoyable and beneficial. The photo shows students at a Malaysian university taking the CIPA assessment.

  2. Embedding

    The long term plan for sustainability is to embed our competence-based content and assessment into university and college curriculum. We have submitted programs to the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) for equivalency status to assist with this. The Certified IP Associate program has already been awarded 4 credits which makes it easy to embed into existing courses. MQA is the agency appointed to implement the Malaysian Qualifications Framework (MQF) as a basis for quality assurance of higher education and as the reference point for the criteria and standards for national qualifications.

  3. SkilPro Capability Centres

    The SkilPro Capability Centres are lab ecosystems designed as a platform for both teaching and research. They come as a package with all the hardware and software, plus the competence-based training. Currently we have four centres:

    • 4G/LTE
    • Virtualisation/Cloud
    • Information Security
    • Broadcast and IPTV

    These have been developed to assist colleges and universitites in building their capabilities in "cutting edge" technologies. For more information please check out our page here.
