UiTM plans for third campus in Kelantan

KOTA BARU: Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Kelantan plans to turn an empty building worth more than RM350mil in Lembah Sireh here into its third campus.

UiTM Kelantan rector Prof Dr Abdol Samad Nawi said the building could accommodate approximately 7,000 students and would be equipped with hostels, lecture halls as well as a shopping centre.

“The paperwork for this has been sent to the State Economic Planning Unit (Upen). If the project is realised, we will have two campuses in Kota Baru. I hope it can be implemented as soon as possible,” he told reporters at the Selangkah ke UiTM 2023 expo held at Bazar Tok Guru yesterday.

Abdol Samad said the plan for a new campus would enable the university to focus on post-graduate studies as well as attracting international students.

“We plan to attract international students from Indonesia, Thailand, China and so on to further their studies in this state,” he said, Bernama reported.

Meanwhile, Abdol Samad said the Kota Baru campus would be offering a new postgraduate programme, namely the Master of Business Analytics, which will commence in October.

“Students who graduate will receive two certificates, namely a Master’s degree and a professional certificate from RapidMiner USA,” he added.
