Welcome to University Malaysia Pahang (UMP). It is with great pleasure that we present to you the key as well as detailed information on our university.
UMP aspires to be the leading provider of engineering and technology-based programs and research outputs. We are committed, herein, to share with you the UMP “campus” experience you need that meets the purpose of your visit.
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 countries, like Malaysia, which are fast developing. More importantly, the teaching and learning approach that has been adopted in UMP is one that is highly student-centred and problem-based.
To achieve these, students in UMP enjoy the use of state-of-the-art facilities that resemble those used in industries. Known for its “Teaching Factory” concept, students in UMP are taught by experienced faculties in a learning environment that prepares them for the real world.
UMP is currently operating on two campuses. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Electric and Electronics 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 km 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.
