About

History

In 1968 Malay scholars formed a steering committee to bring the vision of a national university to reality. A slew of meetings on cultutal and political exchanges eventually secured an agreement from the government of the day. The efforts to realise a Malay language-based institution in all subjects bore fruit and resulted in The National University Of Malaysia (UKM), in May 18 1970.

Education

UKM has 13 faculties, a Graduate School of Business (GSB-UKM), as well as 16 research institutes of excellence in education.

Research

UKM was appointed as one of the four research universities of Malaysia in 2006 based on it’s 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.
