UKM

The National University of Malaysia (UKM) opened its doors on the 18th of May, 1970 in Lembah Pantai, Kuala Lumpur. The first batch of 190 undergraduates and 1 post-graduates registered at 3 faculties; Science, Arts and Islamic Studies. UKM has since seen tremendous growth in being able to provide an increasing number of places of learning for the people as well undertaking research in various disciplines and fields of study. It now has 13 faculties, a Graduate School of Business (GSB-UKM), as well as 16 research institutes of excellence in education. After more than 40 years since its inception, UKM has produced over 146,362 graduates. The university has since attracted global attention, as seen in the 2,937 students from 42 nations.

UKM was appointed as one of the four research universities of Malaysia in 2006 based on its excellent record in research for 40 years. That recognition has gained further ground when the Malaysia Genome Institute (MGI) and the International Institute of Global Health, United Nations University were set up at the university. Its areas of research were further consolidated and enhanced with the identification of eight niche areas; Challenges to Nation Building, Sustainable Territorial Development, Renewable Energy, Health and Medical Technology, Climate Change, Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials, Biological Diversity in Biotechnology Development and ICT: Content Informatics. With these strong foundations, UKM aims at not just sustaining but also enhancing its level of excellence via its 2000-2020 (PS2020) Strategic Plan in line with its slogan, ‘Inspiring Futures, Nurturing Possibilities’.
