This research examines methods to promote computational thinking (CT) in Malaysian education, particularly among college students. The purpose of enhancing first-year students' CT abilities is to ensure that they are prepared for the next industrial revolution, such as Industry Revolution 4.0 and beyond. The Technology Readiness Index (TRI) and the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) are suggested as important criteria in this research to determine how they affect the usage of CT in Malaysian education. This integration will also serve as the research study's fundamental theoretical foundation, and it will be used to create a model called the Technology Readiness Acceptance Model (TRAM). This research will discover a suitable strategy to embrace computational thinking for the next industrial revolution from the perspective of Malaysian education. There is further discussion and explanation in the study regarding the factors that improve IT in Malaysian school. To achieve this objective SmartPLS software package has been used. Through SmartPLS this chapter not only provided the path coefficients, direct and indirect effects but this chapter also applied post estimation diagnostic tests such are reliability test, multicollinearity test, AVE test, F squared and R Squared. The estimated results have confirmed that optimism, Insecurity have significant impact on Perceived Usefulness. Optimism and Insecurity also have significant impact on Perceived Ease of Use. Later on, Perceived Ease of Use and Perceived Usefulness have significant impact on Attitude and dependent variable namely intention. In the last Attitude which is mediating variable in this study also has significant impact on dependent variable namely intention. The findings of this research will benefit everyone, not only university students and teachers who want to enhance their computational thinking abilities. One of the findings of this research will be used to determine if Malaysian young are prepared for the next industrial revolution, particularly in higher education. It's critical to employ technology in education and content creation to come closer to Industry 5.0. Aside from that, the findings of this research will assist the Malaysian government, particularly the Education Ministry, in meeting the difficulties of a new wave of the industrial revolution by providing the knowledge needed to develop the essential curriculum. This is significant because, in order for a developing nation to become developed, it must transition from Industry 4.0 to Industry 5.0. Finally, this research will assist students in taking advantage of chances that will provide them with a better future life and employment stability. Because the talents students gain will be in great demand during the Fourth Industrial Revolution, this is the case.
