Engaging with the Tech Giant - APIIT Corporate Training Organized Visit to Microsoft Malaysia

Under the guidance of Dr. Kalai Anand Ratnam from Faculty of Computing, Engineering & Technology (FCET) and Mr. Hari from APIIT Corporate Training, a total of 80 students from the APU Schools of Computing & Technology participated in an engagement session with Microsoft Malaysia recently, on the 22nd of February 2017. We are pleased to share that this visit has given them an insight of the working culture within the tech giant company, which was located at the Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC). 
Despite being amazed by the view and the well-decorated offices of Microsoft Malaysia during the office tour conducted by a staff from Microsoft, students were also given a short workshop on building their first “cross-platform” application. Upon completion, the students also walked away with some goodies from Microsoft, together with photos that documented their memories of visiting the Malaysian office of one of the world’s largest IT corporation.

The 1-day visit aspired many of our students to undertake their career path in software development. What’s more? Some of them even set a goal for themselves, as they wish to be a member of Microsoft in the future!
