KUALA LUMPUR, April 20 -- SEGi Group of Colleges is partnering with smartphone manufacturer realme Malaysia to produce industry-relevant graduates that meet the demands of the profession.
SEGi chief executive officer Stella Lau said the collaboration would bring inter-organisational visits, joint research and industry placements together with practical training for its students.
“Through this, we will bring the industry into the classroom that allows students to interact and work with industry partners.
“Students also will be able to access advanced laboratories and workshops with essential tools to develop their skills,” she said at the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signing ceremony here today.
Lau signed the MoU on behalf of SEGi while realme was represented by its brand director Huang Hao.
Also present at the event were SEGi senior manager (student and corporate services) Edward Low and realme Malaysia community manager Nor Farhana Mustapha.
Lau said SEGi aimed to provide its students with real-life industry projects and assignments to transition into the industry as seamlessly as possible.
Hence, she said, this partnership would see realme’s experience and expertise incorporated into SEGi's curriculum.
“Realme will be working together with the Faculty of Business to provide actual industry inputs for subjects such as personal selling and consumer behaviour,” she said.
Meanwhile, Hao described realme as a youngster-focused and online-centric brand that became the game-changer of the smartphone industry as well as a pioneer in trendy technology.
