UCTS is committed to facilitating students’ access to an affordable world-class university education that nurtures creative and entrepreneurial leaders through a broad education in science and technology while combining the career benefits of an applied approach for SCORE-related research and career opportunities.
Situated in Sibu, one of the main gateways into SCORE, UCTS’ campus is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art facilities to facilitate teaching, learning and research activities necessary in the production of graduates required by the industries within SCORE.
In addition, UCTS will be complemented by its own Science & Technology Park, which will bring about vast research and entrepreneurial opportunities through local and international industrial and educational collaborations.
Through its close collaboration with Universiti Kuala Lumpur, one of Malaysia’s leading technical universities with over 20,000 students across the country, UCTS aims to complement the growth and fulfil the human resource and industrial needs of SCORE.
UCTS now runs Transfer Degree Programme with five universities namely Murdoch University from Australia; University of Essex, University of Birmingham & University of Portsmouth from the United Kingdom; and University of Canterbury from New Zealand.
