Through this partnership, students will now have the opportunity to enroll in the Maxis Entrepreneurship Programme. Via this programme, students will be required to setup and operate a small authorised agent for Maxis. They will then be evaluated based on their ideas and creativity, business plans and ability to achieve revenues for the business.
Maxis has also installed hotspots that provide high speed WiFi of up to 50Mbps at the KDU UC’s cafeteria and student study areas, enabling students to enjoy WiFi services while on campus. In addition, Maxis will set up a Service Counter on campus for students to purchase any Maxis or Hotlink products or services.
The partnership will also enable students at KDU UC to benefit from easier access to the institution’s conference learning facilities through Maxis’ integrated services combining fixed, mobile and wireless solutions that includes customised application and service development as well as the latest and broadest array of devices.
Apart from technology and entrepreneurship, Maxis said that it is providing students internship opportunities within Maxis.
KDU UC is part of the Maxis Integrated Partner in Education (MIPE), a programme that aims to provide a fully integrated communications suite of solutions for tertiary institutions and their populations. The programme, which was launched in April 2011, is designed to enhance campus communications through a wide range of products and services that will provide campus communities with an enriching education experience.
