About 42 Kuala Lumpur

Good digital talent is hard to come by in Malaysia, ranked as one of the 10 countries in Asia facing acute digital talent shortage. This is according to the Asian Digital Transformation Index study released by the Economist Intelligence Unit. Today we find ourselves in a global digital economy with the rate of change that is faster than anything we have previously seen. Machine learning, automation, and artificial intelligence are set to change what work looks like, particularly as more industries undergo digital transformation. The demand for software engineers is on the rise, but more importantly, so is the demand for people who can collaborate, think critically, problem-solve, and create. To make things harder, the unemployment situation among graduates has grown into a serious matter that needs to be addressed immediately. According to Malaysia’s Ministry of Education Graduate Tracer Study, about 60% of Malaysian graduates remain unemployed one year after graduation. In recent years, being a university graduate no longer guarantees you a job. The world we live in today demands not just people with technical abilities, but problem-solving skills and critical thinking. We will need people who can work together effectively in teams, rather than operating in individual silos. Therefore, 42KL will be an important nation-building project for the country, to give all Malaysians access to quality technology education no matter what your background and socioeconomic status is. 42KL will help lay the foundation for Malaysia to become the leading digital economy in ASEAN. 42KL is one of the first campuses in South East Asia under the 42 network, a revolutionary and innovative programming school often described as “ground-breaking”. This is a non-profit initiative through a partnership between the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation and MDEC, together with the support from Sunway Education Group and Sunway iLabs. The campus is situated in Sunway FutureX, at the heart of Sunway City Kuala Lumpur.
