Industrial 4.0 Readiness

The world has seen three industrial revolutions in the past. The fourth is looming right now and its potential impact to our lives is beyond corporeal imagination. Many felt IR 4.0 will bring disruptive changes to almost all spheres of life including education. In this scenario how will GUC position herself? Education is the nursery bed for future populations, very crucial in ensuring that the world is in the good hands of its knowledgeable citizens. One central characteristic of IR 4.0 is that technology and science is accelerating at exponential rate, making knowledge ‘obsolete’ in a much shorter time especially in computing. For a 3-4 year degree programs, knowledge learned in the first year is superseded by the time he or she graduates. 

In confronting this, GUC shall embark on micro-credential programs namely nanodegrees and micro masters. As the name suggests, micro credentials are earned in a much shorter period (one or two semesters) and skills-based with predominantly industry participation. Our dual-mode license (conventional and ODL) makes it possible to conduct micro-credential programs because part of the syllabus shall be entirely on ODL mode.  Adding salt to the taste, all GUC graduates is fortified with Design Thinking skills to equip them to navigate the unchartered waters of IR 4.0
