TDA, Alstom and UniKL have launched the collaborative Alstom University Digital Learning Program at the University of Kuala Lumpur campus. The program will provide undergraduate engineering students with a unique opportunity to hone their professional skills while obtaining their degree, the first of its kind in Malaysia.

"We are very excited to be embarking on this MOU, including a digital learning program, with UniKL to share this knowledge with young engineering talents. We look forward to collaborating with more industry partners, to continue to nurture and develop a strong pipeline of local talents with deep technical rail expertise and cross-functional capabilities," said Jayaram Naidu, Alstom's Managing Director for Singapore and Malaysia, and Vice President, Services for Asia Pacific.

The 12-14-week program is designed for aspiring professional engineers in the local rail industry and draws on Alstom's industry expertise and UniKL Asia Rail Centre's approach to applied training. The program was created to provide students with relevant knowledge and practical skills in railroad technology, design, operations, and maintenance, as well as soft skills. Students will be taught by renowned experts in the industry through a highly interactive and engaging digital platform using virtual reality, meta-universe, and video training.

As part of Malaysia's 12th Development Plan 2021-2025, the Government is focusing on the growth of public transportation riders and, to do so, they need to create a sustainable and skilled workforce capable of driving growth in the post-coastal economy.

Dr. Sharoul Jambari, Chief Executive Officer of TDA, said: "I applaud the execution of the Alstom University Digital Learning Program and emphasise our commitment to ensure the ICP generated from Government Procurement will create the value-add necessary to enhance the competency of not only local talents but also strengthen the collaboration between top global industry players and leading railway engineering institutions such as UniKL. The collaboration with Alstom, which ranks top tier in the global railway and transportation sector, is made possible through the ICP platform."

"This cooperation will enable UniKL to be one of the main contributors to the transformation of the country's transport landscape and ecosystem which is one of the main focuses of the government agenda. This is in line with the Government's intention to strengthen the national economy through the development of highly skilled human capital in strategic industries such as aerospace, maritime and rail," said YBhg. Prof. Emeritus Datuk Dr. Sukiman Bin Sarmani, Chairman Universiti Kuala Lumpur.

Jayaram Naidu, Alstom's Managing Director for Singapore and Malaysia, and Vice President, Services for Asia Pacific, said: "As the largest supplier of light metro rolling stock and metro signalling systems in the Malaysian railway industry, we have the best know-how and experience within the mobility sector. We are very excited to be embarking on this MOU, including a digital learning program, with UniKL to share this knowledge with young engineering talents. We look forward to collaborating with more industry partners, to continue to nurture and develop a strong pipeline of local talents with deep technical rail expertise and cross-functional capabilities."
