Cambodia’s growing digital army has received a boost after a trio of agreements were signed that aim to equip the nation with the tools to create the technologies for Industry 4.0.
Three signed Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) between the Ministry of Environment (MoE), Cambodia Academy of Digital Technology (CADT), Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC), STEAMING Cambodia (SC) with Siemens Industry Software Pte. Ltd. are slated to “prepare a digital workforce to create the Fourth Industrial Revolution’s technologies in Cambodia,” stated its joint press release.
CADT’s president Dr. Seng Sopheap signed the MoUs with Siemens Industry Software Pte. Ltd. on “Using Siemens’ Xcelerator platform for students to excel in the classroom and beyond”.
Through the partnership, Siemens will provide the MoE with Siemens licensed software bundles, training materials, and curriculum to CADT and ITC, with technical and advisory support from SC. CADT students will receive software training, access to licensed software, and certification programs under sponsorship by MoE.
The partnership will prepare the engineering human resources and building technology and digital skills for the modern industrial age. It also aims to empower the next generation of engineering, technology and digital talents in Cambodia.
All parties agreed to strengthen their partnership in the establishment of the Academia 4.0 Program with Siemens’s Solid Edge® as the first phase of the implementation.
The Academia 4.0 Program will help CADT students to solve tomorrow’s challenges and inspire them to drive human-centered innovation and a sustainable future.
To address environmental issues, Siemens Industry Software pledged to provide the MoE with state-of-the art technology to promote the world-class quality in education and training, added the release.
“It is an important start of partnership between the public and private sector to contribute to human resource development in engineering, technology, and digital, as it supports the government’s policy for economic and social growth,” said Minister of Post and Telecommunications Chea Vandeth, who presided at the event in Phnom Penh.
