Automation Anywhere teams up with Thai uni, firm for high-tech workforce

Automation Anywhere has entered into a university course administration agreement with Dhurakij Pundit University (DPU) and STelligence in Thailand, to look at equipping students in RPA (robotic process automation) skills to prepare them for a digital workforce.

As part of the partnership, DPU’s students, especially those from the College of Innovative Technology and Engineering (CITE), will be able to enroll in an RPA module by Automation Anywhere as part of their electives from December 2019 onwards.

STelligence will commit to providing annual internship opportunities for DPU students to help them develop industry experience.

“RPA is a powerful technology which we believe will serve as a promising and indispensable solution for highly effective and efficient industries,” said Narongdech Keeratipranon, dean of CITE-DPU. “CITE aims to prepare our students to thrive in the future workforce and become skilled RPA developers even as this becomes the new business DNA.”

Organizations across the region have been increasingly looking for talent with the requisite skills to plug the skills gaps encountered. In nurturing talent in this important field, next-generation workers will be able to seize new job opportunities that RPA will create.

These workers will also get to benefit from more productive and dynamic job functions where manual tasks are automated. This frees up their time to take on higher-level work requiring creativity and problem solving.

“Thailand’s strides in technology in the last few years have been undeniable. We are excited to partner with DPU, one of its top schools in Robotic Automation, to share our expertise to groom the next generation of skilled RPA developers,” said Adrian Jones, EVP for Asia Pacific & Japan at Automation Anywhere.
