Academic Strengths

Presently, AIMST has the distinction of being the first technical university in Kedah and the first among the private sector universities in the country that has included several branches of science among its taught disciplines. This strongly reflects the University's philosophy that future technology is based on today's science, and that without the support of science, technology cannot be fully exploited. The University takes pride in its full fledged undergraduate and postgraduate, diploma and foundation courses.

AIMST strongly believes that high quality research and teaching are inextricably bound together and that this ethos should underpin all of its postgraduate course offerings. Students enrolled for the postgraduate courses, irrespective of whether they are following taught or research programmes, will come into contact with high profile experts in their fields. The option to follow a part-time course of study will only be limited to selected postgraduate diploma programmes. All other courses conducted by the University are on a full-time basis.

To strengthen interaction between AIMST staff and professionals in the industry, commerce and the public sector, as well as to ensure that research and consultancy work in the University are in niche areas that can also benefit from the latest insights, three specialist centres will be immediately established. They are the Centre for Postgraduate Medical Education and Health Services, the Advanced Technology Centre, and the Bioinformatics Centre. Support staff for these Centres will be drawn from the Faculties of Medicine and Health Sciences; Engineering and Computer Technology, and Applied Sciences.

The University fully subscribes to the tenets of the K-economy, asserting that knowledge is the key contributor to economic growth and wealth creation as well as the basis of comparative advantage in the dawning era of globalisation. Towards this end, the university pledges to continue its efforts of attracting top quality tenured and associate staff both locally and overseas from time to time to conduct and develop its teaching and research programmes. It will also in the course of its development, forge strategic links with a number of regional and international centres of excellence as well as with the industry at large in promoting the identification and delivery of competitive programmes.
