NILAI, 23rd August 2022 – NILAI-Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Nurflix Sdn Bhd to support industry engagement with academics.
Through this MoU, USIM and Nurflix will work together to produce a series of documentaries to unravel the secrets related to the Quran and science, which will also involve researchers, in addition to the industrial training placement program for students in the industry.
Vice Chancellor Prof. Ts. Dr. Sharifudin Md Shaarani said, in empowering the “USIM Cemerlang, USIM Disayang” agenda, USIM is very concerned about the role of the industry that needs to be shared with students, especially from the aspect of actual experience of skills and knowledge learned through the career itself. Thus, USIM does not hesitate to open its doors to industry to join forces to develop students at USIM.
“I am very hopeful that this collaboration will have a significant impact in producing high-quality and knowledgeable students in Malaysia’s production and broadcasting fields.” “USIM, through FKP, is always committed to organising programs that are beneficial to students so that we can produce competent scientists, leaders, and professionals based on the Islamic scientific tradition and the noble values of religion and culture for the sake of universal well-being,” he added.
Nurflix is a video streaming platform that focuses on Islamic content. It is a product of Sutera Hijau Ventures and offers Shariah-compliant content. Like Apple TV+ and Netflix, Nurflix also focuses entirely on original and exclusive content and can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play with a subscription of only RM19.90 per month.
At the MoU ceremony held at the USIM Chancellery, USIM was represented by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ts. Dr. Sharifuddin Md Sharaani while Nurflix Sdn Bhd was represented by the CEO, Syah Rizal Mohamed.
