About Us

Message from the Director, Dr. Ong Puay Tee

1991002567First and foremost, I would like to congratulate and welcome all of you to the Centre for Diploma Programme (CDP) in Malaysia’s fastest-growing first private university, home to the state-of-the-art technology.

You are about to venture into a territory of dedicated and experienced staff who are committed to realise the centre’s missions as well as protrude the university’s vision in becoming a premier university. Since CDP started in 2000, there is an upward trend in Diploma programme enrolment due to its clear advantage over STPM students and Foundation students. The public perception is changing where enrolling to diploma programmes is no longer a second option. For those who are looking forward to further their studies in degree programmes, diploma students are more prepared with strong fundamental knowledge in their studies. Students may gain credit transfers for relevant courses, provided that the university requirements are met. Furthermore, they are fully equipped to join the workforce if students choose to do so as our programmes are designed with this option in mind.

The centre offers six programmes:
● Diploma in Information Technology (KR7461)
● Diploma in Business Information Systems (KR8122)
● Diploma in Telecommunications Engineering (KR7840)
● Diploma in Electronics Engineering (KR11192)
● Diploma in Accounting (KA6297)
● Diploma in Business Administration (KA7819)

All CDP programmes have been accredited by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). Our programmes equip students with the proper skill-set and mind-set through a variety of ways: practice underpinned by strong theoretical understanding, strong linkages with industries and opportunities to learn in the multimedia environment.

CDP also organises various activities including sports carnival, creative competitions and entrepreneurship week to strengthen the bond between students and staff. Moreover, academic advisors and counsellors within the centre are also appointed for students to discuss their academic progress.

Lastly, I hope that opportunities created in this centre will be a platform for students to explore the vast potentials in the industry out there. I would like to end with a note of congratulations to you once again, for you are now part of the vibrant community of the Centre for Diploma Programme.

Thank you.


Vision

To be a Diploma Centre of distinction, fostering knowledge and skills to develop talents for life-long learning.

Mission
