Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) is one of Malaysia's leading science and technology institutions of higher learning, providing students with opportunities for the pursuit of knowledge, expertise and advancement in the fields of engineering, science and technology.
Its objective is to produce well-rounded graduates who are not just highly competent in technical knowledge but who also possess the creative aptitude and leadership skills needed to take on the challenges of the competitive global marketplace. It aims to shape future leaders of the industry and the nation, ensuring a continuous pipeline of talent to bring Malaysia to greater heights in the international arena.
Established with the future in mind, its award winning 400-hectare campus is designed to inspire and encourage a well-rounded approach to learning and innovation.
A highly-distinguished local university, the internationally-recognised UTP currently enrols students from South Africa, Sudan, Turkmenistan, Vietnam and other countries. In addition, the faculty and student body comprises people from various nationalities, religions and cultural backgrounds. International benchmarking of the programmes and their delivery is carried out continuously through the appointment of external examiners from Australia, Canada, England, Japan, Hong Kong and Scotland. The University is also guided by an International Academic Advisory Council with representatives from North America, Europe and Asia.
UTP differs from other traditional universities particularly in its emphasis on the role of academic staff as facilitators of learning rather than lecturers. UTP applies learning modes to promote the development of competency and on-going learning abilities, complemented by the Industrial Internship programme which utilises industry facilities to provide resources and coordinated practical training.
