Network Integrity Assurance Technologies Sdn Bhd (NiAT) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Lim Ming Soon lauded the partnership between NiAT and Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) during a gathering at NiAT’s headquarters in Menglait.
“The partnership between NiAT and UBD is a practical initiative to promote the satellite data analytics sector in Brunei with the goal of generating highly-skilled graduates who, having been exposed to satellite remote sensing, geographical information systems and image processing analytics, will find these technologies to be useful and applicable when addressing the real-world challenges that they will face in the next stage of their careers.
“NiAT looks forward to being a committed partner to UBD in the coming years and to witness the institution’s academics, students and staff achieve their desired successes in educational, research and administrative purposes, while enhancing their teaching and research capabilities on campus,” said Lim.
He also emphasised that the academic grant is part of NiAT’s initiative to introduce a new market segment in Brunei that would create new career opportunities and entrepreneurship in the geospatial sector.
The event was held to commemorate the collaboration through the NiAT Observe Academia Grant that was awarded to UBD on April 16.
Present at the event were UBD Assistant Vice-Chancellor (Research) Associate Professor Dr Abby Tan Chee Hong, Assistant Professor and Dean of Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) Dr Kathrina binti Dato Paduka Haji Mohd Daud and Senior Assistant Professor at the Department of Geography, Environment and Development Studies Dr Shafi Noor Islam.
