Centre for Quality Assurance (CQA) was formed in 2013 under the supervision of the first Director, Professor Datin Dr. Napsiah Ismail to oversee, manage, facilitate, monitor and report on the development of academic programmes and enhance the roles of supporting departments towards ensuring high quality delivery of education in UCTS. In 2019, Assoc Professor Dr. Rabuan took over the directorship of CQA and continued with the tradition. Centre for Quality Assurance is committed to ensure continuous quality improvement and high quality of teaching and learning through its vision, mission and principles.
UCTS academic programmes have been developed in close collaboration with the industries and based on industrial needs. Initially, UCTS started with four schools and offered only six academic programmes, two at foundation levels and four at undergraduate levels. These are Foundations in Art and Foundation in Science under the School of Foundation Studies. The School of Business and Management offered Bachelor of Business Administration and Bachelor of Accountancy, while the School of Engineering and Technology offered Bachelor of Engineering Technology in Electrical and Electronic and Civil Engineering. The School of Built Environment initially only offered Bachelor of Quantity Surveying.
In 2014, more Bachelor programmes were offered including Architecture, Network Computing, Software Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. In 2015, Electrical Engineering and Food Technology were offered. A new Bachelor programme, Wood Products Processing was offered starting September 2018.
The School of Postgraduate Studies was formed in 2016, marking a huge milestone for UCTS, whereby five postgraduate programmes were introduced, two at PhD level by research and two at Master level by research, of which both are under Business Management and Engineering. Master in Business Management was offered through coursework in 2016. In 2018, two more Master by coursework were offered – Master of Project Management and Master of Architecture. In 2019, two more Research programmes were offered – Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Applied Sciences.
Welcome to UCTS CQA website! Greetings from UCTS, Sibu, Sarawak. Although UCTS is only six years old, we are fully committed to deliver a high quality teaching and learning, as well as fulfilling the university’s tag line in providing “Education at Its Best”! CQA is committed to materialise the new UCTS Goals, of which four of the goals are directly related to CQA as below:
In addition to that, three of the new Strategic Thrusts are also related to CQA’s main core business:
We strive to support the schools and academic staff to transform teaching and learning through creativity and innovation, making learning a “fun” and fruitful activities for both academic staff and students. One main important function of CQA is to ensure high quality of teaching and learning, which is in line with the 21st Century new pedagogical approach and emphasising the use of the latest state of the arts technology, in teaching and learning. To achieve this, we have ensured that learning space and environment have good ambience and relevant to current needs in teaching and learning. CQA also conducts internal audits to ensure programmes are ready for external accreditation process, and contents as well for the purpose of continuous quality improvement.
Although CQA is only manned with three personals, we are working hard to provide administrative, guidance and support for quality assurance to the schools and other supporting departments. CQA in close collaboration with the Human Capital Department, also provides pedagogy courses for new academic staff to ensure that common aspirations are shared by all with regards to cultivating “excellent practice” in teaching and learning. In the coming future, CQA will implement and monitor ISO 9001 certification for UCTS. Facing new tasks and challenges are positive signs of expansion, growth and improvement. The key to a successful institution is the willingness to change and adapt, and most of all putting quality as the priority. The most important goal of CQA is to instil institutional and public confidence in UCTS academic standards and I am extremely honoured to be part of the continuous efforts to elevate UCTS at the highest level in teaching and learning.

Teaching Assessment is conducted at every end of each semester in order to get feedbacks from the students on the effectiveness of teaching and learning for the purpose of:
Curriculum Review is carried out at every end of each semester and conducted within ten days after the final results have been approved by the Senate. It is done based on reviews of qualitative and quantitative data. The qualitative data include Course Coordinator’s reflections of the course’s content and flow, comments from the External Examiner(s), comments from the Industrial Advisory Panel (IAP), comments during Student Dialogue or other qualitative data relevant or related to the course. Quantitative data includes Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs) attainment and student workloads in relation to the Student Learning Time (SLT). Curriculum Review Meetings are chaired by the Head of Programme and a report will suggest any necessary amendments of individual course’s learning outcomes, syllabus, and assessment strategy as well as teaching methodology.
Exit Survey is conducted after the graduation of every cohort of a programme, depending on the duration of the programme, commonly after 3 or 4 years. The respondents for this survey are the graduates. The purpose of the Exit Survey is to identify students’ views of the programme and their assessments and ratings of the overall achievement of the Programme Learning Outcomes (PLOs). Findings from the survey will be analysed and Head of Programmes (HOPs) are responsible to take necessary actions based on the findings.
