UM STEM Centre Initiative My STEM Ambassador Leadership Program 2022: An Industrial Partnership with Micron

Kuala Lumpur, 25 November 2022 – Universiti Malaya STEM Centre has initiated My STEM Ambassador Leadership Program 2022. The program is set to run from the 25 of November 2022 until the of November 2022 at Universiti Malaya and Dewan Toh Puan Norashikin Darul Puteri, Cheras. Anestimated participation of 200 undergraduate from selected local and private universities will be attending the program, with 30 lecturers to escort the students.

According to Ir. Dr. Mas Sahidayana Mohktar, the director of Universiti Malaya STEM Centre, My STEM Ambassador is a platform to expose STEM leadership elements to university students. This platform includes programs to enhance creative thinking skills, critical thinking skills, innovation, and social skills. These skills will improve the participants’ confidence in advocating STEM to the public and school students. The current endeavor conforms to the main objectives of My STEM Ambassador, which are to empower students holistically in terms of innovation & technology skills, entrepreneurship, social skills, and volunteerism; and to establish an effective relationship between universities and the local community, especially schools, to enhance STEM understanding and interest.

The knowledge acquired through the leadership program must be articulated to the community, in hopes of increasing their familiarity with STEM concepts. Successive programs – such as STEM workshops, talks, visits and mentoring – of My STEM Ambassador Leadership 2022 that promote interest in STEM careers and emphasize the opportunities for women in STEM must be carried out by participating universities. These successive programs must target audiences including high school students, undergraduates, graduates, B40 students, and persons with disability (PWD).

Micron Technology, Inc. will partner with the My STEM Ambassador Leadership 2022 Program to promote STEM. Micron is headquartered in the United States with a presence in 17 countries, including Malaysia, and is a leader in innovative memory and storage solutions transforming how the world uses information to enrich life for all. The grant for the program is disbursed by Micron Foundation, which works to understand local challenges and collaborate with others to be a catalyst for good. Through partnerships, programs and philanthropic efforts, Micron Foundation supports STEM education for a range of students from elementary schools and universities, as well as returning learners.
