Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – 7 May 2019 – Fusionex, a leading multi-award-winning software solutions provider specialising in Big Data Analytics (BDA), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Industrial Revolution (IR) 4.0, is collaborating with the International University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW) to advance BDA and computer science proficiency among its students in a bid to groom future technology experts.


In conjunction with the launch of the IUMW Business School, the collaboration was announced during a recent Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony. Held at the IUMW campus, the ceremony was attended by Guest of Honour IUMW Chancellor Tan Sri Dr Tony Fernandes. Also in attendance were IUMW Vice Chancellor Tay Kay Luan and Fusionex Vice President Chen Keat Ming, who were the co-signees of the MoU.


Pursuant to the MoU, Fusionex will be providing the university with technological and advisory support, bringing to bear its state-of-the-art BDA tools and subject matter experts to enhance the technological prowess of the university’s students and faculty staff. This will allow IUMW’s students to use Fusionex’s flagship BDA platform, Fusionex GIANT, for study and research purposes. Fusionex and IUMW are also in discussions to integrate Fusionex Giant to IUMW’s courses and in final-year projects for the students.


To ensure that IUMW students are not only book-smart but capable of working in groups, have good interpersonal communication skills and are able work in a corporate environment, Fusionex will be conducting technical workshops and providing opportunities for internship and industrial training. To spark interest and enthusiasm, Fusionex and IUMW will look into organising data science or BDA competitions such as a ‘Hack-a-thon’ for the IUMW students.


Fusionex Founder & Group CEO Dato’ Seri Ivan Teh commented, “It’s great to be afforded the opportunity to collaborate with IUMW. Together, we look forward to educating and training the next generation of data technology professionals. This partnership is both critical and timely as the world is digitising at break-neck pace. Our hope is that this joint effort with IUMW will be a catalyst which will nurture and produce data technology professionals of high calibre. These young, talented students, if properly groomed, will be the ones that will make a profound difference in this era. Fusionex is excited to be a part of this journey with them.”


IUMW Chancellor Tan Sri Dr Tony Fernandes said, “We are pleased to collaborate with Fusionex in providing education that is relevant and future-proof for our students. Education in the 21st century is about embracing digital technology. The Government’s aspiration for the future generation is for them to be tech-savvy. Technology is moving rapidly and educators are required to keep up with the fast pace and endure it as part of their teaching and learning. It is imperative that students are equipped with ICT and collaborative skills and be interested in lifelong learning.”
