SHAH ALAM: Undergraduates scheduled to move into the Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar) main campus in Kampar in three years' time will be a lucky lot. 

The university will be surrounded by many beautiful lakes amidst lush greenery that will provide a cool and serene environment for studying. 

Architects and engineers have studied the details of the terrain and have taken pains to ensure the campus is built to follow the undulating terrain, instead of having hillocks levelled, to preserve the environment. 

Selangor MCA deputy chairman Datuk Donald Lim said, “Architects with experience have been sought to design the buildings, so that they incorporate the natural setting to tap the good chi that will provide a sense of peace for students studying at the 520ha campus. 

“Most details of the plans have been finalised and the first phase of construction of Utar would begin in September. It is an achievement for the people.” 

Yesterday, Lim joined 116 golfers in a charity golf tournament organised by the Klang MCA division to raise RM50,020 for Utar at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Golf Club here. 

Klang MCA division chairman Datuk Teh Chang Ying said Utar would mould the dreams of young people and help realise their parents' dreams of seeing them become professionals in various fields.
