How do we increase the quality of our graduates? How do we make them industry-ready? Why are our local innovations not successful? Why do we always support overseas products? Why is our graduate’s salaries been very low and have been stagnant for so many years?
It seems everybody is pointing the fingers at other parties except themselves. It’s a very vicious cycle and we need to break this cycle fast, otherwise, we will keep talking and debating the same topic over and over again. Below is a simple diagram that hopefully can break that cycle.
All need to play a role…
- If you support the local industry, then the local industry will continue to “live” and can open more job opportunities.
- And if you support local products, then more graduates with design and development skills are needed.
- Their salary will also increase because they are very much needed.
- When there are high-paying jobs and more opportunities, then more people will be interested in entering the Higher Education Center to pursue such a salary.
- STEM lessons will be more popular later.
- Engineering courses will not be a shortage of students.
- Thus, we can become a “Producer Nation”…
