PETALING JAYA, Nov 25 — Multimedia University (MMU) has been given the honour by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to establish the first Industry Competency Centre on Big Data and Blockchain for Malaysia.
MMU president Prof Datuk Dr Ahmad Rafi Mohamed Eshaq said the appointment was made last week and the centre would be established in Cyberjaya.
“Basically we have the specialists, especially in this area (Big Data and Blockchain), we have a very strong group in terms of research as well as the training for industry people.
“It’s just that we need a dedicated centre where MDEC would keep supporting in terms of whatever research, masterclass, training and so on,” he said during a luncheon here today.
However, he said, MMU is yet to get a confirmation in terms of the allocation that MDEC would be giving and the kind of services that would be provided for the university.
