NEM powers blockchain education in Taylor’s University Malaysia
One of the best ways to propagate the use of blockchain is education, especially to the people who will likely be the ones responsible for the development and adoption of the technology in the future, students.
As such, getting the subject of Blockchain into the syllabus of educational institutions is key. With that in mind, NEM’s latest Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Taylor’s University Malaysia is a step towards that goal.
Signed between NEM Southeast Asia Project Director, Lance Cheang and Taylor’s University’s Vice-Chancellor & President, Professor Michael Driscoll, the MoU will see NEM assists Taylor’s University School of Computing and IT (SOCIT) in a couple of areas.
“We see this signing with Taylor’s University as an important step in the adoption of blockchain by future generations and we look forward to extending our reach to the regional education scene with similar partnerships in the future.”
Lance Cheang, NEM Southeast Asia Project Director
One of the key areas that NEM will assist Taylor’s University will be in the creation of a Blockchain syllabus for the educational institution. By providing the industry expertise and feedback, NEM will be able to further enhance and facilitate the syllabus creation by the university.
The MoU will also see NEM powering the Taylor’s University’s Blockchain Lab, where all Blockchain related projects will be conducted. Students involved in the Blockchain Lab will be given training by the NEM team so the will be well versed in Blockchain and NEM tech.
NEM will also open up the NEM Blockchain Centre in Malaysia to students working on final year projects related to Blockchain.
