eWAVE dengan Produk MPLD dihari Pameran Inovation DNA UiTM

eWAVE dengan Produk MPLD dihari Pelancaran dan Pameran "UiTM’s Academic Blueprint - Innovation DNA"

UiTM campuses, together with its broad spectrum of expertise, are well distributed throughout the nation, making the university the perfect agent of change to instil and stimulate innovative spirit and creativity especially among those who are far from the urban setting. Furthermore, the Prime Minister has called for the year 2010 to be the year of Innovation and Creativity.
Hence in answering the call, UiTM has designed its own blueprint for the very cause. Entitled Innovation DNA: For UiTM and its Local Communities, it was inaugurated by the Higher Education Minister Dato’ Seri Khaled Nordin at the Dewan Sri Budiman on April 5th.
UiTM is the first institution of higher learning to have prepared the blueprint for innovation, which is divided into three phases- Phase 1 (2010-2012), Phase 2 (2013-2015) and Phase 3 (2016-2019). The blueprint serves as the catalyst for UiTM as the university which expedite Malaysia’s mission to accomplish the developed nation status by 2020.

SHAH ALAM, April 6 (Bernama) -- The government does not impose any quota on foreign students to pursue post-graduate studies at public universities in the country, Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said today.

He, however, said the course fees for foreign students undertaking post-graduate studies at public universities were determined by market rate and that they did not enjoy the government subsidy.

"This year, the ministry would also instruct all universities to ensure foreign students do not get government subsidy for their respective 'course fee' at the undergraduate level," Khalid told reporters after launching 
'Innovation DNA For Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) and Local Communities' at UiTM near here.

Khaled also said it had been the government's approach to open admissions to foreign students to pursue post-graduate studies in an effort to get the best experts to undertake research in the country.

"It is good to have students from overseas to come here to study. After all we want to make our education a commodity and we want to make Malaysia a centre of education excellence. Access to higher education is important," he said.

Meanwhile, Khaled also said it was time for the universities to upgrade the entrepreneurship programme for undergraduates to give them more exposure and skills to become entrepreneurs.

"This will help create more entrepreneurs among graduates to commercialise their business products" he said.

Khaled also said that the ministry had set up an entrepreneurship unit to guide graduates in business and entrepreneurship, among other things, and would launch the Higher Education Sector Entrepreneurship Policy very soon.
