Universitas Indonesia to Empower Students With Data Science Skills

TIBCO Software has announced a three-year collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering Universitas Indonesia (UI), which it says will provide students with the technology skills to develop their data science skills and prepare them for future career success. 

Learn data science skills

The collaboration will see TIBCO equipping students with core data science skills that will prepare them for careers in engineering, management, data analytics, and systems design. Up to 500 students from the industrial engineering major will be trained initially, which is expected to eventually include students from other faculties within UI.

Students can expect school-based workshops and hands-on practice using technologies that include TIBCO Spotfire, which is offered for free as part of TIBCO’s academic initiative.

The need for highly specialized skills in data science is growing, according to Nick Lim, TIBCO, general manager, Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ), as organizations in Indonesia and across the region move ahead with digital transformation. TIBCO sees this collaboration as “mission-critical” to address a future data talent gap, he explained.

“This collaboration with TIBCO is in line with our commitment to academic excellence through private sector collaboration with leading technology companies, as we strive to maintain leadership in the global academic environment. Integrating academic learning with real-world practice is part of our overall efforts to nurture future-ready graduates,” said Amalia Suzianti, Head of Industrial Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering UI.

“With our partnership with industry experts such as TIBCO, we are optimistic that this innovative program will further strengthen our high-quality education for our students and provide them with the data analytics skills needed in today’s business environment.” 

TIBCO has a record of engaging with schools across the Asia Pacific region. We previously reported on a collaboration with Nanyang Polytechnic, and TIBCO says it has others in Singapore such as with Singapore Polytechnic and the Institute of Technical Education.
