UMP is relatively a new university and it has been categorised as a focused university, among 19 other public universities in Malaysia. Our specialisations are in the fields of engineering, technology and industrial sciences. You will find that the courses the university offers are those that are in great demand by students in a fast developing country like Malaysia. More importantly, the teaching and learning approach that has been adopted by UMP is one that is highly student-centred and problem-based.
Students in UMP enjoy the use of state-of-the-art facilities that resemble those used in industries. Known for its “Teaching Factory” concept, our students are taught by experienced faculties in a learning environment that prepares them for the real-world.
UMP is currently operating in two campuses. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Electric and Electronics Engineering, and the Faculty of Manufacturing Engineering are located in a resort-like campus of Pekan. The rest of the faculties, academic centres and centres of excellence are operating in Gambang, a town strategically situated in the rapidly growing petrochemical and biotechnology hub. The two campuses are about 40 kilometres apart.
For potential scholars wishing to spend their time in UMP, we offer a very conducive environment for research, teaching and consultancies. Several visiting positions are available that suit your preference.
