SIDMA College Collaborated with MOSTI To Empower and Inspire Youth Towards TN50.

As we advance further into the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), inevitably science, technology and innovation will tremendously improve the competitiveness, boost productivity, upgrade industrial structures and address future challenges. Malaysia in advancing into building a knowledge economy and a knowledge society by mobilizing Science, Technology and Innovation by year 2050 recognizes Science, Technology and Innovation as powerful instruments of social change. The impact of it can be felt through the modernisation of technologies and systems, changing lifestyle at every level – from individual to societies and the nation.

Dr Morni Hj Kambrie, Chairman and Founder of SIDMA College acknowledged that the development of solutions to these key national transformations will require the mobilization on the waves of creative, innovative and entrepreneurial youth across the country to paint a clear strategy that places science, technology and innovation at its core.
