DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY CAREER PATHWAY FOR TAHFIZ STUDENTS
We at UNIMY believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to explore and venture into the world of digital technology. In the effort of providing the path for Tahfiz Students to further their studies at UNIMY, the premier digital technology university has recently collaborated with Yayasan Tahfiz An-Nisaa (YTAN), an NGO committed to the development of Tahfiz education through charitable activities and scientific programs.
In March 2021, Yayasan Tahfiz An-Nisaa visited UNIMY to discuss Academic Program Collaboration which both parties note the importance of getting Tahfiz students into the fields of Digital Technology. The Tahfiz students should not be left behind as things are evolving rapidly in all sectors, and without a doubt, we are moving towards the digital world.
They need to be exposed to the skills and knowledge to adapt to the era of digitalisation. Via the programmes at UNIMY, the Tahfiz students will learn how to be innovative to develop things related to Tahfiz education, such as Syariah compliance digital equipment, products, software application, and many more.
Being digital does not mean the Tahfiz students will be putting behind their Tahfiz Studies (Pengajian Tahfiz) as UNIMY will be offering its distinct UNIMY Tahfiz Certification Programme. UNIMY through the Center for Language and General Studies has taken the initiative to create places and opportunities for students in technical fields to obtain the Tahfiz Al-Quran Certificate during their studies at UNIMY.
This aspiration will be realised through the collaboration of UNIMY and YTAN. After thorough discussions, YTAN has been appointed as UNIMY representative and recruiter of Tahfiz students. UNIMY Vice Chancellor (Professor Datuk Ts. Dr. Mohd Razali Muhamad) and team have also paid a delegation visit to Maahad Tahfiz Az Zahrah.
Additionally, UNIMY Vice Chancellor and a Cyber Security lecturer Mr. Mohd Naim Abdullah appeared on Salam Dunia Tahfiz (SDT) talk show organised by YTAN to introduce UNIMY and what studying cyber security is all about.
Due to overwhelming response and many wanted to know more about the academic journey of Tahfiz students to UNIMY, YTAN has developed a special session, namely Tahfiz Digital Learning (TDL) for UNIMY representatives (experts and lecturers) to share insightful information related to the programme offerings, UNIMY focus areas, and the field of digital technology as a whole.
