TAR UC and Hotayi Electronic (M) Sdn Bhd (‘HOTAYI’) forged a collaboration that led to the Memorandum of Agreement (‘MoA’) signing ceremony which was held on 30 March 2018. The ceremony was attended by Datuk Ng Peng Hay, Chairman of KOJADI who was the Guest-of-Honour, Datuk Dr Tan Chik Heok, President of TAR UC, Dato’ Lee Hung Lung, Chief Executive Officer of HOTAYI and Ms Goh Guek Eng, Managing Director of HOTAYI .
The collaboration under the theme “Industry Education Collaboration: For a Better Engineering Education Tomorrow” will bring TAR UC and HOTAYI together in carrying out 6 industry-oriented projects which will be developed by final year students from the Faculty of Engineering (‘FOEN’) and Faculty of Computing and Information Technology (‘FOCS’) as their final year project. The 6 industry-oriented projects are the Automated Production Simulation, Machine and Process Data Analytics using Artificial Intelligence, Machine and Process Data Analytics, Image Processing Automations, Product Data Analytics and Parts Supply Chain Automation.
By incorporating such industry-oriented projects in TAR UC engineering and IT programmes, TAR UC provides real life industry-relevant experience to the FOEN and FOCS students so that they are ready for work once graduated. Such partnership with the industry also enables TAR UC to close the gap between the industry and academia especially in the age of Industry 4.0.
