TAR UC Is Now A Full Fledged University

Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TAR UC) has been upgraded to a full-fledged university and is now known as Tunku Abdul Rahman University of Management and Technology (TAR UMT).

This announcement was made by Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, Minister of Transport, today.

Tunku Abdul Rahman University College was established in 1969 as TAR College with the focus of providing tertiary education opportunities for young Malaysians regardless of race, class, and creed who were seeking quality education as well as meeting the rising demand for human capital from businesses and industries. The College started with a single campus in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur which is now the Main Campus. Subsequently, five branch campuses were established in Penang, Perak, Johor, Pahang, and Sabah.  

Its main campus in Kuala Lumpur sits on a piece of 171-acre land and the campus is an iconic landmark for its architectural feat in blending historical buildings with modern structures as well as the verdant greenery. Meanwhile, the branch campuses in Penang, Perak, Johor, Pahang, and Sabah are purpose-built complete with state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities for learning and teaching.

The University offers programmes at pre-university, diploma, Bachelor’s degree, and postgraduate levels that are widely recognised by academia and industries for their depth and breadth of scope and academic rigor. Today, TAR UC has a student population of about 28,000 including international students from more than 20 countries enrolling in close to 200  programmes over a wide range of disciplines from foundation to accountancy, finance, business, economics, engineering, built environment, applied sciences, ICT as well as mass communication, creative arts, social science, and hospitality management.
