TVET System Vital Tomeet Needs Of Industry 4.0

Last update: 12/01/2018
NILAI, Jan 12 (Bernama) -- As Malaysia's premier Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institution, polytechnics under the Higher Education Ministry should play a big role in that field of education.

Polytechnic Education Department director-general Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Ismail Abd Aziz said this was because the TVET system was now seen as one of the most important education fields to drive the country's future and meet the needs of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0).

As such, he said, lecturers and students at polytechnics should be prepared to face the global challenges in a bid to realise the country's aspiration to become a developed nation.

"Lecturers should not confine themselves to the existing knowledge in their field, they are very talented and they must be willing to relearn and get the second skill. For students, they must be mentally and physically prepared to meet future challenges," he told reporters after delivering the 2018 New Year message at the Nilai Polytechnic here today.

Also present was Polytechnic Education Department deputy director-general (operations) Dr Mohammad Naim Yaakub. The event was also attended by about 2,000 officers and staff of polytechnics and community colleges nationwide.
