Ash Merchant, Director of Education at Fujitsu, said: “University of the West of Scotland is passionate towards digital transformation and the role of digital in supporting its students – and we’re excited to be a part of that with the launch of the Innovation Hub. A recent survey by Fujitsu revealed that around a fifth (22%) of consumers believe that digital education should be part of the modern education curriculum, which points towards a real need to see education establishments focusing on the digital journey. Educational institutions like University of the West of Scotland will play a crucial role in making this happen – and Fujitsu, supported by our partners, is committed to supporting them in bringing their vision to life.”
This latest addition to UWS’ Paisley Campus follows the successful launch of the ultra-modern Lanarkshire Campus in August last year which is home to flexible learning and teaching spaces complete with cutting-edge technology to give students and staff access to some of the most modern university facilities in the UK.
Lee Ballantyne, Head of Education Futures, UWS said: “At UWS we believe in innovative learning partnerships and through the Fujitsu Ambassador Programme we have the opportunity to initiate further collaborations with partners in schools, colleges, local authorities and industry, to drive transformational change across the areas where it is most needed, raising aspirations and inspiring ambition in our students, staff and local community.”
