How did I contribute to KLIUC Convocation Ceremony 2007

I wrote a Preface for the souvenir book.


It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the fifth Convocation Ceremony 2007 of the Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College (KLIUC). On this occasion, we are pleased to welcome all guests of honors, parents, members of the family, friends, academic staff and administrative staff to celebrate the graduates’ success in receiving their scrolls and commemorate their beginning of a new journey in life. To the graduates: bravo and congratulations for completing your studies at KLIUC. Our heartfelt appreciation goes to all faculty and staff for constantly working hard and showing dauntless commitment in upholding KLIUC’s vision and mission. Our deep gratitude goes to the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) and the National Accreditation Board or Lembaga Akreditasi Negara (LAN) for their valuable co-operation and guidance.

KLIUC is an MSC status higher learning institution and has long benefited from ISO 9001 certification. KLIUC is also a member of Microsoft IT Academy Program Our strong commitment and collaboration with the MoHE and LAN guarantee our continuous growth and progress towards achieving our vision to become a world renowned infrastructure university. KLIUC, established in 2003, strives to excel in various fields by providing quality and excellent educational and professional services, and state-of-the-art technology to more than 2,000 local and international students every semester. To date KLIUC has produced almost two thousand graduates who are now serving primarily in engineering and technology related fields. It has a remarkable graduation rate, offers reasonable fees, grants tuition waivers for outstanding students and recognizes them with Dean’s List Award, and most importantly, consists of faculty and staff who are constantly improving themselves towards greater achievements. We are committed in our focus towards achieving our goal of becoming a full-pledged university by next year.

At KLIUC, over thirty approved and accredited academic programs are offered – 16 diplomas, 15 degree programs, 2 master’s program (Business Administration and Engineering), and 2 foundation programs in Business and Engineering. Admission to these programs is based on counseling referrals, student interest and career goals. Most of our diploma programs and a number of our degree programs are accredited by LAN. With the aim to enhance the proficiency in English, we offer short courses to anyone interested to improve their English. The courses are English for Academic Purposes, Public Speaking, English for the Workplace, Preparation for the Malaysian University English Test (MUET) and the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), and Intensive English Program. Realizing the importance of IT skills, KLIUC is now offering both Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) and Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) certifications to anyone keen on upgrading themselves in the IT field.

KLIUC has been actively establishing relations and securing arrangements for scholarships and advance standing status with foreign universities. It has international partners and has signed a number of MOUs with universities, institutions and agencies in the United Kingdom, the People's Republic of China, Australia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Ireland and Maldives for collaborative arrangements, and more MOUs will be signed with universities in New Zealand, South Africa and the Netherlands. As a result, we are seeing a steady enrolment of students from these countries; our students are able to transfer credits if they wish to complete their degree programs in these countries, and the staff are able to conduct activities such as research and development, joint programs and consultancy.

As we try to prepare the students for the future and provide them with solid academic background, we also aim to equip them with human skills by encouraging them to participate in extra-curricular activities which enable them to develop talents, forge strong friendships, work as a team, develop excellent communication skills, learn ways to think about issues and solve problems, as well as nurture reason, national integrity and tolerance towards different cultures and religions.

In line with KLIUC’s motto, "For Knowledge, For Humanity", we are committed to develop the students’ characters, and prepare them to become responsible citizens of Malaysia and in the world at large, and to produce high quality and excellent graduates. It is hoped that this effort will meet the demands of the industries and the country's rapid development. We believe that education does not end with a graduation. So, to the graduates, begin your new life with the ability and determination to excel academically, personally and morally; a willingness to extend yourself to help others and to take a chance on playing a leadership role; and the ability to work as part of the nation and the world.
