COVID-19 has encouraged development in Disruptive Technology and has been a boon for the Energy Industry as more people have been forced to work from home. The demand for facial recognition systems has increased in place of fingerprint scanning technology as offices worldwide have been forced to quickly adapt to a virtual office model, as have educational institutions with courses offered online.

CMU’s College of Arts, Medias and Technology, recognizes that digital competence is becoming an ever increasing aspect of labor development and has created a curriculum development project together with industrial companies to stream line its student courses in response to the market needs. CAMT has developed:

1. Curriculums in response to the industrial market and are for students who are ready to enter the work force.
2. Students who pass an integrated and theoretical study in the university can gain real practice in a company.
3. Students who apply for employment are more likely to be hired as the positions they can apply for closely match with their studies

Companies who have participated in the project and have help to develop the curriculums at CAMT have also gained the following:
1. Companies will have access to graduates who meet the general requirements of the company
2. Companies can be assured that they will have access to a labor pool where the candidates meet the company’s general requirements.
3. Participation costs for companies in the project is tax deductible at a rate of 200%
