KDU Penang University College
Spurred by the success of the Petaling Jaya campus, the KDU board decided to expend the college beyond the Damansara Jaya vicinity and plans were quickly made to make this dream a reality. From there, a decision was made to set up a branch campus in Penang with the aim to provide further education access to Penangites as well as the community in Northern Malaysia.
KDU Penang University College began its chapter when it opened its door to its first batch of students in 1991. Since then, the KDU Penang University College has grown by leaps and bounds. Now sitting proudly at Jalan Anson, KDU Penang University College is the most popular private tertiary education provider in the northern region. It has international alumni from 60 countries around the world.
KDU Penang University College’s range of internationally recognised industry-driven academic programmes covers a wide level of offerings from Certificate to Diploma and Degree level programmes. All its programmes are accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency and are internationally affiliated with top universities around the globe such as University of Lincoln and Northumbria University from the United Kingdom and the International Management Institute Switzerland (IMI).
KDU Penang was conferred an all-round 6-star College status by Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) MyQuest Audit 2014/2015. It boasts of state-of-the-art facilities which include industry-standard 5 star kitchens, a Recording Studio, Media Command Centre, Art Gallery and Design Studios, VLSI engineering labs, Games and Multimedia Computing Design Labs, Business Boardrooms and Lounge, Mock Hotel Suites, Mixology lab and many more.
In 2015, KDU Penang received the prestigious 6-star, college-based rating in the 2014/2015 Malaysian MyQUEST for the large category. KDU College was the only private college in Penang – and the Northern region – to be awarded this eminent recognition.
All this helps ensure that every KDU student is well prepared to be gainfully employed upon graduation – an indisputable fact that has strengthened the institution’s impressive graduate employment ratio record.
