UNITEN, March 15, 2017 – The College of Computer Science and Information Technology (CSIT), Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) invited me to their 2017 meeting of the Industrial Advisory Panel (IAP) for the Bachelor of Computer Science (Systems and Networking) (Hons.).
It started with the briefing on BCS (SN) Programme structure and summary of 2016 IAP meeting outcome and action plan by HOD SN, Dr. Asmidar. It was followed by intensive feedback and discussion from various members from the industry and universities such as Western Digital, Microsoft, REDtone IOT, Cybersecurity Malaysia, Ofisgate, Uzma, Intel, UITM, UUM, UniKL and other.
Unlike some Universities who only elected one (1) or three (3) members, UNITEN invited many senior officials from various organizations as their IAP members. This greatly showed the level of commitment by UNITEN and their enthusiasm to get closer with the industry and making their courses more relevant to the current needs.
