Course Description

Acquiring Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology

Health Care is a multi-billion ringgit industry in Malaysia. However, this industry is facing a great shortage of qualified personnel. This means that there is a strong demand of graduates and holders of the Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technician or higher qualifications.

The comprehensive course structure, coupled with the practical aspects of the Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology, will prepare our students as employable staff for many areas in the healthcare industry. Our diploma programme comprises academic knowledge with practical skills in our modern and well-equipped laboratories, which will enhance your knowledge and skills.


The health care industry is in the midst of one of the most significant shortages of trained personnel in its history, and leaders predict it is a trend that will continue. In the Journal for Clinical Laboratory Science a survey indicated that within the next seven years 50% of the current practitioners will retire, and that not enough programmes exist to meet the needs of the industry.
