In its effort to widen the range of courses offered and increasing the number of students, UMP will be offering seven (7) new bachelor degree programmes for the upcoming intake. The programmes has been approved by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) recently together with a new faculty, Faculty of Manufacturing Engineering.
The new courses offered by the University are:
1.Bachelor of Manufacturing Engineering
2.Bachelor of Mechatronic Engineering
3.Bachelor of Occupational Safety & Health
4.Bachelor of Industrial Technology Management
5.Bachelor of Project Management
6.Bachelor of Applied Science Industrial Chemistry
7.Bachelor of Applied Science Industrial Biotechnology
All the new programmes except for the Bachelor of Mechatronic Engineering and the Bachelor of Applied Science Industrial Biotechnology are expected to recruit their first batch of student in July 2008. Both Mechatronic and Industrial Biotechnology will start its first recruitment a year later in July 2009 instead.
Hopefully, the introduction of the new programmes will not only boost the number of students at UMP but also open up new opportunities for the potential students to pursue their tertiary education at the University.
