“It is time for you to explore and experience in the real world, meet a new environment that is different from when you were students. You need to learn to adapt to the working society and strengthen yourselves to be effective and efficient,” said H.E Chea Vandeth, Minister of Posts and Telecommunications, as he presided at the graduation ceremony of 119 successful students at Cambodia Academy of Digital Technology (CADT).
As part of the nation’s aim to boost its human capital in the digital technology and science, CADT’s new batch of graduates sit in line with “Cambodia Digital Economy and Society Policy Framework 2021-2035”.
“All students have been highly involved in the growth and development of CADT in the past year, including participation in school activities, such as arts, sports, festival, and participation in various competition programs, both domestic and international, that always brought back victory and fruitful results,” H.E. Dr. Seng Sopheap, CADT President, said at the graduation ceremony for the academic years 2020 and 2021.
He told the the audience of government leaders and the graduates’ parents who had gathered to celebrate the graduation day, “I hope that all of you will become pillars and ambassadors of the academy, setting an example for the next generation in the field of digital technology.”
More than 95% of CADT’s graduates get jobs matching their skills and work at established companies in the fields of telecommunications, digital technology, and startups.
Some of the academy’s outstanding students have been awarded scholarships to study at prestigious universities in the United States and Europe, while others launch their own business venture.
Cultivating Cambodia’s new innovators and entrepreneurs is an essential part of CADT to join hand with the government to supply digital skills for the nation’s growing demands. With its 3 institutes, Digital Technology, Digital Governance, and Digital Research & Innovation, CADT “hopes this will mark a journey for students in their endeavour toward a digital technology world”.
