JASIN: A new Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) campus costing RM300mil will be built at Seri Mendapat in Semujuk near here instead of the previous site at Serendah in Rawang, Selangor.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the campus for 5,000 students expected to be completed in 2013 would be built on a piece of land that belonged to Melaka Foundation.
“It will have residential colleges, administration blocks, lecture halls and other facilities to help Malacca become an education hub,” he told reporters after visiting the site on Wednesday.
Also present were Yayasan Basmi Kemiskinan chairman Datuk Zainal Abidin Sakom and Melaka UiTM campus director Datuk Prof Nadya Dr Mizan Hitam.
Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin was reported to have said that the project to be implemented by Yayasan Basmi Kemiskinan had been shifted to Jasin.
The original plan was changed as the Selangor government refused to approve the project. — Bernama
