Terengganu College Eyes University Status By 2015August 1, 2013 | National News
KUALA TERENGGANU: Terengganu Advanced Technical Institute University College will be upgraded to a full university by 2015.
Its chairman, Bazlan Abd Rahman, said the college, which was established more than 10 years ago was making preparations to achieve the goal.
Bazlan, who is also Batu Rakit assemblyman, said by 2015, there would be 5,000 students at the Kemaman campus.
"Having enough students is part of the requirements for a university college to be upgraded to a university," he said after breaking fast with 200 orphans and community leaders at the Sutera Beach resort here on Sunday.
He said some 300 students would become the pioneer batch in September pursuing degrees.
"They will be pursuing bachelors degree courses in tooling, computer science, production management, chemical technology and polymer science," he said.
Bazlan said the college would be able to produce more skilled workers for the oil and gas industry once it was upgraded to a full university.
