A head start in ca­reer in IT

New Straits Times - - Excellence In Education -

THERE are changes ex­pected in the labour mar­kets in 2020 due to the Fourth In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion, which is de­fined by rapid de­vel­op­ments in pre­vi­ously frag­mented fields, in­clud­ing ro­bot­ics, nan­otech­nol­ogy, 3D print­ing, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, ge­net­ics and biotech­nol­ogy.

With this, dif­fer­ent skills are needed for a new land­scape to flour­ish in the next decade. As a re­sult, some of the ex­ist­ing labour might soon be re­dun­dant and up to 5.1 mil­lion jobs would be lost, ac­cord­ing to a World Eco­nomic Fo­rum re­port. While mil­lions of hu­man labour will be lost to ef­fi­cient ma­chines, it will cre­ate more job op­por­tu­ni­ties in ar­eas such as com­put­ing, en­gi­neer­ing and tech­nol­ogy.

In Malaysia, there is a de­mand for tech­nol­o­gists as the gov­ern­ment be­lieves that tech­nol­o­gists play an im­por­tant role in in­no­va­tion to drive the 2050 Na­tional Trans­for­ma­tion (TN50) that was an­nounced by Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak dur­ing the tabling of 2017 Bud­get in Oc­to­ber last year.

For that rea­son, today’s youth should en­rol in Tech­nol­ogy & In­no­va­tion.

SEGi Univer­sity & Col­leges of­fers high­qual­ity pro­grammes for var­i­ous lev­els from cer­tifi­cates to diploma, de­gree and post­grad­u­ate stud­ies.

With un­prece­dented growth of the In­ter­net of Things (IoT), the time is now for school leavers to cre­ate a sus­tain­able ca­reer by tak­ing the first step to reg­is­ter in cour­ses of­fered at the learn­ing in­sti­tu­tion.

The cour­ses of­fered in­clude the Bach­e­lor of In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy (Hons), which is a Dou­ble De­gree from SEGi Univer­sity and Aber­tay Univer­sity in the United King­dom.

This pro­gramme al­lows stu­dents to choose their spe­cial­i­sa­tion in Busi­ness Sys­tems De­sign or Soft­ware En­gi­neer­ing.

The pro­grammes are de­signed to en­sure that grad­u­ates can adapt in the fast-paced and dy­namic world upon grad­u­a­tion. Un­der this course, stu­dents will be able to gain ac­cred­i­ta­tion awarded by pro­fes­sional cer­ti­fi­ca­tions, in­clud­ing Java, Or­a­cle and EC Coun­cil.

The other course is the Bach­e­lor of Science (Hons) Com­put­ing (3+0) from Univer­sity of Green­wich in the UK.

The mod­ules are de­vel­oped to pre­pare stu­dents for the chal­lenges of to­mor­row, par­tic­u­larly in tech­nol­ogy.

Upon grad­u­a­tion, grad­u­ates can start a lu­cra­tive ca­reer as a sys­tem an­a­lyst, com­puter pro­gram­mer, web de­signer and soft­ware de­vel­oper.

Another course is the Bach­e­lor of Science (Hons) Com­puter Sys­tems & Net­work­ing (3+0) from Univer­sity of Green­wich.

SEGi, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Univer­sity of Green­wich in­tro­duces this pro­gramme to stu­dents to en­able them to have a solid foun­da­tion in com­puter net­work de­sign in­clud­ing its hard­ware and soft­ware, as well as its main­te­nance.
