Prof. Emeritus Dato’ Dr. Ahmad B. Hj. Zainuddin
University College of Yayasan Pahang (UCYP) has shown a tremendous improvement as a higher learning institution since it was established in 1992. From a college that offered professional and skills courses, now UCYP is offering more than twenty (20) competitive and market-driven courses inclusive of internal programmes and other collaborative programmes with both local and international universities.
A strong governance structure is a backbone to a strong university. The university is inculcating and practicing positive values in strategizing and executing roles and responsibilities. The transmission is done via a ‘Quick Wins’ approach that promotes visible, beneficial, immediate yet impactful results. Rigorous activities involved will be research development, academic programs of a wide range and levels as well as smart collaboration with industries.
The main agenda of UCYP is to produce holistic graduates. The students are introduced to VOCADEMIC (vocational & academic) structure that emphasizes both academic and hands-on elements in teaching and learning. In addition to that, in line with the present demands and needs, the students are exposed to Industry Technology 4.0, Internet of Things (IoT), and global issues.
Multiple efforts are continuously done to make UCYP a distinguished higher learning institution and to become a regional high rank university within a five-year time. Hence, UCYP provides its quest for excellence to those who foresee themselves as future leaders and achievers.
