Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim …
Assalamualaikum WBT, Salam Perpaduan dan Salam Satu Malaysia!
I am very pleased to welcome the visitors of Kolej Poly-Tech MARA (KPTM) website. In this era, information is at the fingertips, and in line with this rapid development of information technology, I hope that this site is able to provide essential information, especially on KPTM and the courses offered by our colleges. I also believe that this website will grant you clear pictures of our Vision, mission, policy and general development.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of KPTM staff and citizens, from the headquarters and branch campuses, who directly or indirectly maintaining excellent performance through MS ISO 9001:2008. Thus 2012 is the year of strengthening the quality of management system in order to enhance the quality of performance, which will further strengthen KPTM. This will become a challenge which should be braced by all of us to drive KPTM to the top as well as international, Fortunately, the ISO certification and MyQUEST rating received recently will be the catalyst for us to achieve the goal.
2012 will also witness the upgrading of KPTM in achieving the standard of University College by providing degree programs.
June 22nd, 2010 is the starting point of KPTM logo re-branding, and during the period of two years, KPTM had continued to improve the quality of its service. Consequently, on 26 january 2011, KPTM opened the year by being acclaimed as “The Malaysian Service Excellence Award 2010” by The Malaysia Trade and Industry Organisation. Furthermore, KPTM spread its wings by opening the 8th campus, in Semporna, Sabah, which is the first KPTM campus outside peninsula Malaysia. The 9th campus, KPTM Kesedar was later launched in Gua Musang, Kelantan. After achieving the Best Company of Ministry of Rural and Regional Development award (MARA category) in 2008, KPTM continues to strive for countless successes.
Alhamdulillah, KPTM has recorded another success with an outstanding achievement by scoring 4 stars in Malaysia Quality Evaluation System (MyQUEST) for 2010 and 2011. Moreover some of the programs in most KPTM had obtained 5 stars through the Rating System for Malaysian Higher Education.
MyQUEST rating proves that KPTM provides a good learning opportunity as it operates according to the world standardization through MS ISO Certification.
Rebranding strategy and the success in obtaining MS ISO 9001:2008 certification, has put KPTM on a solid foundation in becoming an excellent higher education institution.
The measures and strategies taken are proven fruitful as in last November and December, Standards and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM) had granted KPTM to prolong MS ISO certification which was obtained last year.
Apart from aspect of quality, KPTM also plays a role in organizing corporate social responsibility (CSR) via KPTM Prihatin, a program which caters the concerns towards local community.
Recognising the importance of education, KPTM offers excellent teaching and learning services towards students based on the industrial needs and learners’ interest. KPTM consistently acts proactively to offer quality courses and practices excellent management system.
KPTM, an institute of higher education under MARA, offers programs of Degree level, Diploma, Certificate/ Preparatory and Professional in various fields such as Computer Science / Information Technology, Business Management, Accounting, Science, Engineering, Nursing and Social Sciences. These courses are offered in 8 KPTM campuses located throughout the nation – Kuala Lumpur, Bangi, Alor Setar, Kota Bharu, Batu Pahat, Ipoh, Kuantan and Semporna. In addition to homegrown programs, KPTM also collaborates with other institutions of higher learning from within and outside of Malaysia such as UiTM and Coventry University, United Kingdom.
We guarantee that these programs meet the standards and have been recognised by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA), relevant and professional bodies, as well as local and international universities.
Hopefully this KPTM website is able to provide information and exposure to the community to become more familiar with KPTM and its role to the community. Any questions and suggestion are most welcome for future improvement.
