Welcome to Universiti Malaysia Pahang Al-Sultan Abdullah (UMPSA), and thank you for visiting our website. It is with great pleasure that we present the key and detailed information on our university.
UMPSA aspires to be the leading provider of engineering- and technology-based programmes and research outputs. Herein, we are committed to sharing the UMPSA campus experience that meets the purpose of your visit.
UMPSA is a relatively new university and has been categorised as a focused university among 19 other public universities in Malaysia. Our specialisations are in the fields of engineering, technology and industrial sciences. You will find that the programmes and courses the university offers are in great demand by students in a fast-developing country like Malaysia. More importantly, UMPSA has adopted a highly student-centred, problem-based teaching and learning approach.
Students at UMPSA enjoy using state-of-the-art facilities that resemble those used in industries. Known for its ‘Teaching Factory’ concept, our students are taught by experienced faculties in a learning environment that prepares them for the real world.
UMPSA is currently operating on two campuses. The Faculty of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering Technology, Faculty of Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technology and Faculty of Manufacturing and Mechatronic Engineering Technology are located in a resort-like campus of Pekan, with several academic centres and centres of excellence. The rest of the faculties, academic centres and centres of excellence operate in Gambang, a town strategically situated in the rapidly growing petrochemical and biotechnology hub. The two campuses are about 55 km apart.
For potential scholars wishing to spend time in UMPSA, we offer a conducive environment for research, teaching and consultancies. Several visiting positions are available that suit your preference.
I would like to encourage you to spend some time on our website so that you will know us better. I sincerely hope that you will find our site useful, and if you need further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact anyone of us at the university.
