FIRST City Univer­sity Col­lege (First City UC) and Kuala Lumpur & Se­lan­gor Fur­ni­ture In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion (KLSFIA) en­tered into a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) for af­fil­i­a­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion re­cently.

The MoU was signed by Prof Dr Ho Chee Cheong, vice-chan­cel­lor of First City UC and Datuk Eric Lee, pres­i­dent of KLSFIA, and wit­nessed by Tan Sri Dr Teo Chi­ang Liang, pres­i­dent of First City UC and Al­bert Khoo, sec­re­tary-gen­eral of KLSFIA.

This col­lab­o­ra­tion widens and en­hances the knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence of ma­te­rial and fur­ni­ture pro­duc­tion and de­sign for fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of the stu­dents and the staff of the col­lab­o­rat­ing par­ties.

The valu­able ex­change of pro­fes­sional knowl­edge and in­dus­try best prac­tices with aca­demic teach­ing and learn­ing will en­hance the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion of­fered to stu­dents of First City UC, who stand to ben­e­fit from the close in­dus­try link­age.

“We are de­lighted to en­ter into this col­lab­o­ra­tion with KLSFIA, as it will fa­cil­i­tate the mu­tual shar­ing of ex­per­tise and best prac­tices in train­ing, cur­ricu­lum de­sign, stu­dents’ in­tern­ship, teach­ing and re­search de­vel­op­ment, and cul­tural af­fil­i­a­tion. As an ed­u­ca­tion provider, part­ner­ships with es­teemed or­gan­i­sa­tions such as this will en­able us to pro­vide the best train­ing meth­ods and in­dus­try ex­po­sure to our stu­dents,” said Teo. – Alex Chai

The MoU marks the first col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the two par­ties to pro­mote ex­change of pro­fes­sional knowl­edge and in­dus­try best prac­tices with aca­demic teach­ing and learn­ing.
