What companies say

Industry players share their experience about working with our students.

Each year, our students intern at various companies and take on real challenges companies face in their industry.

Organisations have been impressed with our students bring to the table. Here is what they say:

“I love working with Swinburne Sarawak students. They challenge the status quo and use their creativity to push boundaries. They make simple look awesome and wonderful. They are the future industry shakers and movers.”

Hasnul Hadi Samsudin, Director, Creative Content & Technologies,
Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC)

“Inspidea is an ever-expanding 2D animation studio so we are constantly looking for talented people to join our fun family. Since 2015, we had the pleasure of working with some Swinburne graduates and students in animation and programming. We find that they are a passionate bunch when they are given the opportunity to shine. They are full of untapped potential. With the right guidance, they can blossom to be even more talented and creative. Swinburne staff is very receptive, collaborative and forward thinking in their student placement approach. We are open for more Swinburne graduates to join Inspidea.”

Andrew Ooi, Managing Director, Inspidea Sdn Bhd, Petaling Jaya, Selangor

“Over the years, we have worked with a number of Swinburne Sarawak students who have consistently represented themselves as an eager, enthusiastic and talented lot. They presented new perspectives, showed that they know their stuff, and justified their proposals eloquently. We are impressed with their ability to grasp the task at hand, which showed thoughtful research. We adapted some of their action plans, which appear to be working well. This has been a proactive and valuable partnership for SCB and for Swinburne students who are hungry for some work experience in a dynamic corporate environment.”

Amelia Roziman, Chief Operating Officer, Sarawak Convention Bureau

“I must say our relationship with Swinburne Sarawak can best be described as holistic, very close as well as mutually interesting and beneficial, starting from the very beginning of Swinburne’s establishment in Kuching. This relationship involves continuing collaborations between Swinburne and SAINS group of companies on a wide range of joint academia-industry initiatives involving the management and faculty staff down to postgraduate research, undergraduate industrial placements and ultimately our corporate social responsibility projects. I fully believe that the outcome from this extensive collaboration is significantly greater to Sarawak than the sum of the benefits accruing to Swinburne and SAINS group of companies in Sarawak.”

Dato Teo Tien Hiong, Chief Operating Officer, CEO, SAINS Group of Companies
