AS the world moves towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0), there is a growing need to produce industry-relevant graduates.

With this in mind, SEGi Group of Colleges (SEGi) has joined hands with Realme Malaysia to give its curriculum a boost.

Through the collaboration, its students will also benefit from interorganisational visits, joint research, industry placements and practical training.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by SEGi chief executive officer Stella Lau and Realme Malaysia brand director Huang Hao.

Lau said it is SEGi’s aim to provide its students with real-life industry projects and assignments to enable them to transition into the industry as seamlessly as possible.

“It is a privilege for us to have Realme showcase products that have been incorporated with the Internet of Things (IoT) as an actual application to raise further awareness of the importance of IR4.0.

“Realme will be working together with our Faculty of Business to provide actual industry input for subjects such as Personal Selling and Consumer Behaviour, ” she added in a press release.

Huang said the partnership is an opportunity for Realme Malaysia to elevate the curriculum of colleges and universities in the country.

“We are a youngster-focused and online-centric brand that has become the game changer of the smartphone industry.

“A partner like SEGi who is forward-looking shares our ‘Dare to Leap’ spirit. We will continue to leap forward in empowering youths, ” he added.

Also present at the MoU signing ceremony were SEGi Student and Corporate Services senior manager Edward Low and Realme Malaysia community manager Nor Farhana Mustapha.
