Universiti Teknologi Malaysia

  • Description
  • The Uni­ver­siti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) is a lead­ing innovation-​driven entre­pre­neur­ial research uni­ver­sity in engi­neer­ing sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy located both in Kuala Lumpur, the cap­i­tal city of Malaysia and Johor Bahru, the south­ern city in Iskan­dar Malaysia, which is a vibrant eco­nomic cor­ri­dor in the south of Penin­su­lar Malaysia.

    With a strength of more than 2,000 aca­d­e­mic staff, of which more than 200 are for­eign grad­u­ate fac­ulty mem­bers, UTM con­tin­u­ously strives to develop and enhance qual­ity aca­d­e­mic and pro­fes­sional pro­grammes of inter­na­tional stan­dard and global recog­ni­tion. The stu­dent pop­u­la­tion con­sists of more than 11,000 full-​time under­grad­u­ate stu­dents, more than 6,000 enrolled on dis­tance learn­ing pro­grammes as part-​time stu­dents and more than 9,000 post­grad­u­ate stu­dents in var­i­ous fields of spe­cial­i­sa­tion. Out of this, more than 3,000 are for­eign students.

    UTM’s mis­sion is to lead in the devel­op­ment of cre­ative and inno­v­a­tive human cap­i­tal and advanced tech­nolo­gies that will con­tribute to the nation’s wealth cre­ation. This is in line with the aspi­ra­tion of the coun­try towards becom­ing a knowledge-​based, innovation-​led econ­omy grounded in cre­ativ­ity and inno­va­tion with high value cre­ation. Through a strate­gic trans­for­ma­tion of its orga­ni­za­tional struc­ture, UTM is focused in cre­at­ing a vibrant aca­d­e­mic cul­ture and fer­tile intel­lec­tual ecosys­tem that inspire cre­ativ­ity and innovation.

    Inno­va­tion is thus cen­tral to its core value, with the inno­va­tion cul­ture per­me­ated across all dimen­sions of the uni­ver­sity includ­ing teach­ing and learn­ing, research and devel­op­ment, writ­ing and pub­li­ca­tion, man­age­ment and admin­is­tra­tion, staff and stu­dent devel­op­ment, con­sul­tancy and pro­fes­sional ser­vices and also uni­ver­sity social respon­si­bil­ity. Inno­va­tion is expe­dited by the uni­ver­sity com­mu­nity through con­certed effort and strong team spirit with shared mis­sion and purpose.

    UTM has also estab­lished a rep­u­ta­tion for inno­v­a­tive edu­ca­tion and leading-​edge, proven by becom­ing the three-​time win­ner for the National Intel­lec­tual Prop­erty Award for orga­ni­za­tion cat­e­gory. A stim­u­lat­ing research cul­ture exists in UTM through 11 Research Alliances (RA) in strate­gic dis­ci­plines namely Sus­tain­abil­ity, Info­comm, Water, Cyber­net­ics, Biotech, Con­struc­tion, Mate­ri­als & Man­u­fac­tur­ing, K-​Economy, Energy, Trans­porta­tion and Nan­otech­nol­ogy. In addi­tion there are 28 Cen­tres of Excel­lence (CoE) in addi­tion to aca­d­e­mic fac­ul­ties to ser­vice tech­no­log­i­cal edu­ca­tion and research needs of the university.

    UTM is also actively engaged in research col­lab­o­ra­tion with renowned insti­tu­tions such as Har­vard Uni­ver­sity, MIT, Uni­ver­sity of Oxford, Impe­r­ial Col­lege of Lon­don, Uni­ver­sity of Cam­bridge, Tokyo Uni­ver­sity and Meiji Uni­ver­sity on areas of mutual inter­ests. To facil­i­tate fur­ther engage­ment and net­work­ing in aca­d­e­mic and research under­tak­ings, inter­na­tional satel­lite offices have been estab­lished in Tokyo, and already in the pipeline are plans to estab­lish satel­lite offices in Doha (Qatar), Mad­i­nah (Saudi Ara­bia), and in Boston (USA).

    UTM is thus renowned for being at the fore­front of engi­neer­ing and tech­no­log­i­cal knowl­edge and exper­tise, con­tribut­ing to the tech­ni­cal and pro­fes­sional work­force of the nation since 1904. Being a graduate-​focused uni­ver­sity, UTM has the high­est num­ber of post­grad­u­ate enrol­ment in engi­neer­ing and tech­nol­ogy, which is one of the impor­tant com­po­nents in con­tribut­ing towards the devel­op­ment of an innovation-​led econ­omy. Hav­ing pro­duced more than 200,000 tech­ni­cal grad­u­ates and qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als over the years, UTM has earned its place as Malaysia’s pre­mier uni­ver­sity in engi­neer­ing and tech­nol­ogy which inspires cre­ativ­ity and innovation.
