Superior Personality and Sustainability UMPSA aims 6 commitments, 20 initiatives

With the theme of Superior Personality, it reflects the ability of competence and knowledge involving UMPSA staff and students.

This can be practised through the UMPSA core value principles: strong bond with the Creator, steadfast in upholding shared principles, creative in making wise decisions, resolute in facing challenges and proactive in taking actions.

A prudent approach is also suitable for managing any activity at any time, in any place and in any situation.

According to the UMPSA Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dato’ Ts. Dr. Yuserrie Zainudin, in engineering the advanced TVET, UMPSA needs to be able to distinguish TVET course offerings at UMPSA from polytechnics and community colleges.

“The phrase advanced TVET itself reflects a clear distinction that includes aspects of admission, study programmes, facilities and talent production.

“Therefore, there are five strategies to increase the enrolment of TVET students at UMPSA in the Program Perdana and Program Sepanjang Hayat (PSH), namely widening access to student admissions, MTUN strategic collaboration, flexible programmes, campus expansion and TVET education generation,” he said.
