On 5th August 2022, a Meet and Greet session was held between MMU and ACO Tech Sdn Bhd at the Cyberjaya campus. The guests, which were led by Mr. Li Pu, Chief Executive Officer of ACO Tech Sdn Bhd were warmly welcomed by Prof. Dato’ Dr. Mazliham Mohd Su’ud, President of MMU. Both parties initiated their collaboration through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which was signed virtually in October 2021.
Through this cooperation, the Industry Handshake Programme (IHP) took place in the first quarter of 2021. The IHP brings the Industry Problem into classroom as part of the subjects’ assessment. Students from the Faculty of Creative Multimedia (FCM) were given a task to work on the problem given by ACO Tech Sdn Bhd, where they had to produce themes and wallpaper for the latest ATLAS OS. As a result, five wallpapers were selected and will be published over-the-air update for Proton X50, and Iriz MC. More collaborative efforts will be explored by MMU and ACO Tech Sdn Bhd in an effort to grow the talent pool for the industry.
Also attending the session were Prof. Dr. Wong Eng Kiong, Vice President of Student Experience and Entrepreneurship Development (SEED); Dr. Ong Jeen Wei, Director of Alumni, Career and Entrepreneurship Development (ACE); Dr. Lim Kok Yoong, Dean of Faculty of Creative Multimedia (FCM); Assoc. Prof. Dr Junaidi Abdullah, Dean of Faculty of Computing, and Informatics (FCI); Mr. Albert Quek, Deputy Director, Career Connect and MMU officials.
