UofG Singapore update
It’s been a busy few weeks at the University of Glasgow Singapore (UGS), with the signing of an important Memorandum of Understanding, the Graduation Ceremony and – of course – the 2016 Singapore Grad Ball, says Professor Trevor Hoey, Dean of UGS.
The MoU signing brings together the University of Glasgow, Secura Group and Republic Polytechnic in a collaboration on cybersecurity research and a development laboratory.
This collaboration aims to create a unique ecosystem of academia, cybersecurity technology partners and cybersecurity practitioners to explore and support Singapore’s new cybersecurity strategy and operations in alignment with the city-state’s ‘Smart Nation’ objective.
Headed by distinguished advisors including Professor Christopher Johnson, Dr Keoh Sye Loong and Mr Boo Chong Han, topics of focus include cybersecurity for Internet of Things, Data Analytics and Industry 4.0, also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which deals with how manufacturing will be revolutionised by the integration of physical processes, robotics, computing and networking.
The Collaboration aims to develop Secura’s in-house innovation capabilities in cybersecurity and to create a unique ecosystem of talents, knowledge and resources in which students from RP’s School of Infocomm as well as computing science and engineering students from UGS will work on cybersecurity capstone projects and conduct research which are aligned with Smart Nation.
And no Graduation Day is complete without the Graduation Ball…this year held at the Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium.
