Message from the Vice Chancellor, Professor Datuk Dr Khairuddin Ab Hamid

Welcome to UCTS, one of the new breed of technological based universities in the country. Founded in 2013, UCTS is the only university which is wholly owned by the Sarawak State Government.

Located in the heart of Borneo, UCTS offers a broad range of professional and industry-linked academic programmes that are relevant to the unique requirements of Sarawak in particular and Malaysia in general. Therefore, we are proud to be recognized as the only “home-grown” TVET university in Sarawak with the aim to produce an educated and highly skilled human capital for the new and emerging industries.

UCTS also prides itself as the only university in the world being awarded the prestigious Platinum ratings in Green Building Index (GBI) for its campus design in promoting sustainability in the built environment and energy utilization. The campus design is very impressive, stunningly beautiful and remarkably spectacular. This modern setting within the enclosure of the rainforest and nature will provide the most conducive learning environment for our students.

The University has invested heavily in teaching-learning facilities, especially state-of-the-art laboratories equipment, ICT infrastructure and services, and other resources for research and development (R&D). Our R&D activities are very closely linked and collaborated with industry partners and government agencies.

In recent years we have been embarking on our internationalization programmes to include student mobility, staff exchange, academic articulation arrangement and joint research projects with universities from United Kingdom, Australia, Europe, Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, India and ASEAN countries.

We would like to welcome you and to be part of this energetic and highly motivated campus community that will unleash your full potential to realize your dreams.

I am delighted to be part of this promising new university. I wish to work closely with all staff and students in making UCTS a great institution of academic excellence with dignified character and values.
