First City UC works closely with key players in the IT and electronics industry, one of which was the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with IBM Malaysia in 2016 to renew its academic collaboration to embed IBM technologies into First City UC’s ICT curriculum and equip its undergraduates with cognitive computing skills.
Since the establishment of the MoU in 2008, First City UC has produced high calibre graduates equipped with professional IBM certification. Under this collaboration, First City UC provides teaching resources and facilities, whilst IBM provides leading software, courseware, training and testing necessary to gain certification.
First City UC has adopted IBM curriculum in their Software Engineering and Computer Science (Intelligent Systems) degree programme, where students have the opportunity to work on Large Scale Computing, Cloud Computing and Mobile Platform Programming and apply the techniques they learnt to develop a broad range of software relevant to the ICT industry.
