New waves of technological disruptions and the emergence of advanced technologies have resulted in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), where Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, Virtual Reality (VR), Cloud Computing, Data Science are going to transform the way businesses operate – routine, mundane jobs will be replaced and there is a growing need to develop “smarter” talents that can ride along the wave of Digital Transformation. APU is taking a lead in Digital Transformation in higher education and preparing workforce for the future.

At APU, we developed our own IR 4.0 strategy to prepare our students to join the workforce of the future. We nurture the world’s future innovators and uphold our Vision as a University of Technology and Innovation.

Technology has became more important than ever before, during these post covid-19 times. There is a greater demand for technology & innovation, driven by new challenges that are more challenging for businesses and industries to operate under the ‘new normal’. Some of the applications of technology within the medical industry are such as the Human-AI collaboration in the role of discovering a COVID-19 vaccine. Outside the medical field, the pandemic is introducing new constraints and challenges that technology systems can help overcome. AI can help develop new solutions and ideas to build a more flexible organization that works remotely. E-Commerce, Digital Marketing & Digital Advertising are thriving and changing business models. Hence, our programmes at APU are Technology-Driven in all fields, ensuring long-term employability and future-proof careers in the age of Industry 4.0, post COVID-19 and beyond.
