Ericsson and KMUTT partner to build a 5G ready workforce in Thailand

APACEducationThailandTop Stories

Ericsson and King Mongkut University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) are partnering to support Thai students to build 5G ICT skills for the future.

The partnership will provide KMUTT students with access to ‘Ericsson Educate,’ Ericsson’s online education initiative that supplements the students’ ongoing technical studies with courses that aim to strengthen their ICT skills and increase their job readiness.

The partnership supports the country in preparing for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) and in turn, gives a boost to the digital economy.

‘Ericsson Educate’ is a digital skills portal that provides learning materials on key technologies, including 5G and related technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning, automation, Blockchain, cloud computing, data science, Internet of Things (IoT) and telecommunications.

The content from the ‘Ericsson Educate’ portal, allows students and lecturers to access quality digital learning resources from Ericsson’s 145-years’ experience in telecommunications and ICT.

Ericsson will provide access to KMUTT students in faculties of engineering and innovation. KMUTT will map the courses available in the Ericsson Educate portal against the courses that the university offers, to allow students to use the courses to earn credits towards academic degrees and micro-credentials.

Ericsson will also provide subject matter experts as guest lecturers on relevant topics pre-selected by KMUTT. Around 2,000 students are expected to benefit from this program in the first year alone.
