KAMPAR: The convocation of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman's (Utar) first batch of 2,000 graduates will be held at Wisma MCA in Kuala Lumpur in August.
Utar council chairman Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik said the graduates would be finishing their studies next month.
“The convocation will be on Aug 6 and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has agreed to attend the function,” he said after inspecting the main electrical sub-station for the Utar campus here yesterday.
He said the convocation, to be officiated by MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting, would consist of five sessions.
“We think it is only fitting that since the university was the brainchild of the MCA, that it goes back to the MCA president to officiate it,” he said.
On the construction of the Utar campus, Dr Ling said the main electrical sub-station would be finished in time and would house a German-made transformer.
Describing the sub-station and the 40-tonne transformer as “critical pieces” to the campus, Dr Ling said once this was ready, other electrical appliances such as lifts could then be commissioned.
