QBeep and Curtin University Malaysia Seals MoU for Industrial Relevant Learning Experience

QBeep Intelligent Systems Sdn. Bhd. collaborated with Curtin University Malaysia, to provide engineering students at Curtin Malaysia with an industrially relevant learning experience. The collaboration between QBeep Intelligent Systems Sdn. Bhd. and Curtin University Malaysia will strengthen the training business by creating an expanded learning platform that provides a variety of skills relevant to the innovative digital era.

The exchange of information on career development and research projects pertinent to the needs of both parties and the community is a component of joint programmes and initiatives. As the cooperation develops, further initiatives will be explored to encourage the region’s rising educational technology requirements and demands.

Diabetic Retinopathy Detection and Grading for Eye Diabetes and Fall Detection Technology will be the focus of their joint research by researchers from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Curtin Malaysia, led by Dr. Wong Wei Kitt, and their counterparts at QBeep Intelligent Systems, led by Chief Technology Officer Dr. Brendan Khoo Teng Thiam.

Meanwhile, Professor Simon Leunig, Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor Vincent Lee Chieng Chen, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Science Professor Tuong-Thuy Vu, Dean of Research and Development Professor Ramasamy Nagarajan, Dr. Wong, and Associate Dean of External Engagement at the Faculty of Engineering and Science Ir.

In his remarks at the ceremony, Professor Leunig expressed confidence that the collaboration with QBeep Intelligent Systems would serve as the impetus for the formation of an incredibly robust partnership between the two organisations. It has become evident, according to him, that QBeep Intelligent Systems’ industry experience in providing high-end IoT solutions to a wide variety of clients and Curtin Malaysia’s strengths in related research and academia can be leveraged for their mutual benefit and the benefit of the communities in which they operate.

“We are well placed to be a strong partner in these collaborations,” said Professor Leunig. “As Curtin University’s largest global campus and hub in Southeast Asia, which is majority owned by the Sarawak Government, and coupled with our broad expertise and modern and well-developed research and teaching facilities, we are well positioned to be a strong partner in these collaborations.”

He went on to say that the research endeavors of Curtin Malaysia are supported by the institution’s robust partnerships with industry, business, and the government. These partnerships enable the institution to find new avenues of innovation that can provide outcomes that are mutually beneficial for society. Consequently, Curtin Malaysia places a high priority on the cooperation it has established with QBeep Intelligent Systems.

In addition to collaborating on research projects, the two organizations will work together to provide internships, industry immersion or Work Integrated Learning (WIL), and full-time employment opportunities, as well as host industry talks, site visits, field projects, and technical workshops for the engineering students at Curtin Malaysia. These activities will take place through a combination of industry talks, site visits, field projects, and technical workshops.

The collaboration will also include the appointment of representatives from QBeep Intelligent Systems to the Faculty of Engineering and Science’s Industrial Advisory Panel, as well as the supervision of capstone unit projects for ECE students, career guidance and mentoring sessions, and speaking engagements for students by staff members from QBeep Intelligent Systems.
