Suc­ceed on global stage

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - SETARA -

THE Asia Pa­cific Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy & In­no­va­tion ( APU) is among Malaysia’s premier pri­vate univer­si­ties that de­liv­ers a unique fu­sion of tech­nol­ogy, in­no­va­tion and cre­ativ­ity in its education that pre­pares grad­u­ates for sig­nif­i­cant roles in busi­ness and so­ci­ety glob­ally.

APU has earned an en­vi­able rep­u­ta­tion as an award- win­ning univer­sity through its achieve­ments in win­ning a host of pres­ti­gious awards at na­tional and in­ter­na­tional lev­els.

APU’s sound ap­proach to nur­tur­ing school- leavers into qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als has re­sulted in its grad­u­ates be­ing highly sought af­ter by em­ploy­ers.

With an in­ter­na­tional stu­dent com­mu­nity that com­prises peo­ple from more than 100 coun­tries study­ing in its Malaysian cam­pus, APU of­fers a truly cos­mopoli­tan learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment that pre­pares stu­dents for global chal­lenges.

APU con­tin­ues to de­velop and de­liver its aca­demic pro­grammes through unique and well- es­tab­lished in­ter­na­tional part­ner­ships, par­tic­u­larly with Stafford­shire Univer­sity UK but also with other part­ners through­out the world.

This for­mi­da­ble com­bi­na­tion of Malaysian home­grown pro­grammes for­ti­fied with in­ter­na­tional bench­mark­ing pro­vides stu­dents with the as­sur­ance that the qual­i­fi­ca­tions gained from APU meet in­ter­na­tional qual­ity stan­dards.

APU was an­nounced as among the high­est- rated univer­si­ties in Malaysia, be­ing rated at Tier 5 ( Ex­cel­lent) un­der SE­TARA 2011 and SE­TARA 2013 rat­ings by the Education Min­istry and Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency ( MQA).

APU ( via the Asia Pa­cific In­sti­tute of In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy ( APIIT)) is Malaysia’s first In­sti­tu­tion to achieve Mul­ti­me­dia Su­per Cor­ri­dor ( MSC) Com­pany Sta­tus.

Through its net­work with the APIIT Education Group branch cam­puses es­tab­lished in Sri Lanka and In­dia, APU has reached out to young as­pir­ing pro­fes­sion­als in th­ese coun­tries, pro­vid­ing them with a unique op­por­tu­nity of ex­pe­ri­enc­ing in­ter­na­tional best prac­tises in higher education us­ing cur­ric­ula, pro­cesses, re­sources and sys­tems de­vel­oped in Malaysia.

APU’s aca­demic pro­grammes are ap­proved by Malaysia’s Higher Education Min­istry and the qual­i­fi­ca­tions are ac­cred­ited by the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency ( MQA).

More than 11,000 stu­dents study in its cam­pus in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, in­clu­sive of more than 6,000 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from 110 coun­tries.

Through a net­work of branch cam­puses es­tab­lished in Sri Lanka and In­dia, APU also reaches out to young as­pir­ing pro­fes­sion­als in th­ese coun­tries.

The APIIT Education Group is a key con­trib­u­tor to Malaysia’s aim of be­com­ing an in­ter­na­tional hub of ex­cel­lence for education and has set a bench­mark as a suc­cess­ful model of in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion.

APU of­fers pro­grammes cen­tred on the ap­pli­ca­tion of tech­nolo­gies as it be­lieves that knowl­edge and skills in tech­nol­ogy will be a vi­tal re­quire­ment for all ca­reers in the fu­ture.

APU is also a pi­o­neer in the de­liv­ery of a mas­ter’s de­gree in data sci­ence and busi­ness an­a­lyt­ics as well as Is­lamic bank­ing and fi­nance pro­grammes at both un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate lev­els.

Pro­grammes of­fered by APU are bench­marked against in­ter­na­tional qual­ity stan­dards for qual­ity, rel­e­vancy and cur­rency. Its pro­grammes are ap­proved by the Min­istry of Higher Education and MQA. They are also qual­ity as­sured by in­ter­na­tional part­ner univer­si­ties, in­clud­ing Stafford­shire Univer­sity, UK, which is a pub­lic univer­sity and a mem­ber of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Com­mon­wealth Univer­si­ties.

Its pro­grammes are de­vel­oped not only to pro­vide in­ter­est­ing stim­u­lat­ing mod­ules to de­velop young minds, but also to en­hance their knowl­edge and skills, in­creas­ing their chances to com­pete for their dream jobs.

Ex­po­sure to the real world en­ables grad­u­ates to ap­ply knowl­edge and skills im­me­di­ately upon em­ploy­ment. Hence, in the course of their study, stu­dents un­der­take projects that mir­ror ac­tual projects car­ried out in in­dus­try.

APU ap­plies con­stant struc­tured use of tech­nol­ogy as a learn­ing and man­age­ment tool through its web­space por­tal, on­line course­ware com­mu­nity and on­line feed­back sys­tems that fa­cil­i­tate com­mu­ni­ca­tions and col­lab­o­ra­tions as well as 24/ 7 ac­cess to course ma­te­ri­als, as­sess­ments and projects and other in­for­ma­tion.
