MULTIMEDIA University (MMU) and Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar) have signed an agreement to explore joint research and development projects, activities, courses and seminars.
Utar president Prof Datuk Dr Chuah Hean Teik said the memorandum of understanding (MoU) was to establish a foundation for a synergistic partnership between the universities.
“The best breakthroughs are often achieved with the best talents from different locations and diverse disciplines working together,” said Dr Chuah during the exchange of the MoU with MMU research and development and commercialisation vice-president Prof Dr Tou Teck Yong at Utar’s Kampar branch in Perak on Thursday.
He said the resulting synergy of leveraging strengths, complementarities and intellectual diversity between Utar and MMU would further contribute towards the advancement of a knowledge-based and innovation-driven economy.
Dr Chuah said both universities could have study visits, student exchange programmes, share expertise and joint developments on researches and developing new teaching and learning techniques.
