Message from UTAR President

Greetings and welcome to UTAR. 

As a university by the people, for the people, UTAR has always been a university with a solid foundation, a strong sense of community spirit and a reputation for academic and research excellence. UTAR has a growing regional presence and an expanding international profile of over 570 local and international partners from 30 economies, more than 110 external examiners from 20 economies, and a total of 144 industry advisors for our academic degree programmes. 

We will do our best to make your educational journey at UTAR a fulfilling one with a meaningful sense of purpose and achievement. We hope you will find new experiences on campus that will engage your creativity, enhance your potential towards greater achievements and spark your curiosity to explore and learn more for an overall progressive journey in personal growth.

Our focus on quality education and research excellence have led the university to attain numerous local and international awards by both students and staff. We encourage students to be involved in campus co-curricular activities by joining our clubs and societies, short courses, workshops, trainings, webinars, community projects, competitions, and the conferences that involve the local and international community, and the industry. We believe that a good university education must also incorporate learning outside the classroom, interaction with the community and learning from the best in the industry.

In the next few years of your university life, I hope you will make new friends and experience campus life to add on to your growing perspective of life, enhance your personality, and help you gain valuable life lessons.

Once again, welcome to UTAR and we look forward to your commitment and participation in your programme of study. An exciting journey awaits you. Do your best to make it a memorable and successful one.

Best wishes,

Ir Prof Dato’ Dr Ewe Hong Tat
