Varsity wants students to be part of Fourth Industrial Revolution

MASERU – Limkokwing University of Creative Technology says its new crop of students to be ready to play their part in driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
This was said at the 12th annual orientation for new students held at the Lehakoe Recreational and Cultural Centre, that started on Tuesday and ends today.
The fourth industrial revolution is the current and developing environment in which disruptive technologies and trends such as the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) are changing the way we live and work.

The First Industrial Revolution is widely taken to be the shift from our reliance on animals, human effort and biomass as primary sources of energy to the use of fossil fuels and the mechanical power this enabled.
The Second Industrial Revolution occurred between the end of the 19th century and the first two decades of the 20th century, and brought major breakthroughs in the form of electricity distribution, both wireless and wired communication, the synthesis of ammonia and new forms of power generation.
The Third Industrial Revolution began in the 1950s with the development of digital systems, communication and rapid advances in computing power, which have enabled new ways of generating, processing and sharing information.

The Limkokwing University has established itself as a leader in technological innovations and creativity hence the expectation that its graduates will be pioneers of the fourth industrial revolution in the long run.
The orientation was held in order to welcome new students, thus teach them on how the university operates.
With this year’s theme, “Grooming 4th Industrial Revolution Ready Professionals”, the speakers at the event made sure to highlight factors in their presentation that encourage creativity, dedication and commitment to one’s work.
Limkokwing alumni were also present at the event to share their success stories with the new students.
They shared stories on how the university had groomed them into becoming what they are today.

A local psychologist, Tšepang Majara from Mind Liberation, was also present to give a motivational speech for new students.
