Student Testimonials

Erverna Navamalar Thanasegaram

Bachelor of Information Technology (Honours)

University of Tenaga Nasional is a beautiful university with excellent education facilities. It is well-equipped with adequate high technology necessities such as laboratories, computer laboratories, multimedia lecture rooms, tutorial rooms and many more. A conducive learning atmosphere is what I like most here - a smaller group of students in a class get equal attention from the lecturers. Besides that, the lecturers who were mostly ex-TNB engineers and professionals conduct their lectures in a very unique way, where practical knowledge and real life practices are being instilled into us. There are also extra curricular activities to help students to develop their minds, therefore producing not only intellectuals, but also ethical capable professionals with good personalities. In short, University of Tenaga Nasional is one of the most prestigious institutions of higher learning that cater to all the needs of students, and I am very happy to be here.
