ESTABLISHED IN 1956, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) has grown to become the largest comprehensive university in Malaysia. It currently offers 504 academic programmes as of 2022, with 111 of those programmes accredited by national and international professional bodies.

A proven premier higher education institution, UiTM is well known for generating industryrelevant talent and has more than 30,000 students graduating annually, culminating in an employability rate averaging 82.9%.
The pandemic accelerated the digitalisation of teaching and learning at UiTM. In line with Education 5.0 @ UiTM and the University’s goal of producing well-balanced, entrepreneurial graduates, UiTM’s Global Learning initiatives provided an online platform for global learning sessions. The delivery of Open and Distance Learning (ODL) was strengthened through the introduction of UiTM Smart Classroom, enhancing existing in-house e-learning platform UFUTURE, which is fortified with cloud computing capabilities.
In addition to its existing facilities, UiTM’s Sim Centre provides the Clinical Simulation Centre, an educational space for medical students to learn and practice in a safe environment. The platform emphasises hybrid learning, beginning with online learning and progresses to on-site skills training.
With a community of over a million students, staff and alumni, UiTM is on the path to achieve its strategic goal of being globally renowned by 2025.
