MICROSOFT PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION PROGRAMME FOR POLITEKNIK BRUNEI STUDENTS
Politeknik Brunei kick-started its IT Academy initiative - a follow up project after the signing of MOU on "Partners in Learning" between Politeknik Brunei and Microsoft Brunei. The aim of this project is to bring industry recognized IT-related certifications into the curriculum, to support the institution's vision in producing innovative, skillful and marketable graduates.
The first phase of the project began recently, when selected Politeknik Brunei students were given the opportunity to undergo the Microsoft Professional Certification Programme. The initial phase focused on providing certification for graduating students from Politeknik Brunei's School of Business, School of Information and Communication Technology, and School of Science and Engineering - whom will be graduating in January 2016.
A total of 20 students participated in the programme and successfully completed the 3-day course. The certification was tailored to the students' needs and academic discipline, whereby 4 students from Business and 6 students from Science and Engineering undertook 'Microsoft Office Specialist (Excel)', and 10 ICT students focused on 'Microsoft Technology Associate (HTML5 Applications Development Fundamentals)'.
The programme was held from 7 December until 9 December 2015, co-facilitated by Tech One Solutions Sdn Bhd and held at the Knowledge Hub (KHUB), Anggerek Desa.
Politeknik Brunei IT Academy will be officially launched sometime next year, which strives to integrate more professional ICT-related certifications into the curriculum, and more importantly boost its students' marketability for future employment as envisioned in the Politeknik Brunei's vision.
