KDU Smart Community
The KDU Smart Community comes alive with the dynamic symbiosis between KDU students, staff, and university partners interacting with the industries and global communities. At the heart of this SMART COMMUNITY, emphasis is placed on the process of learning and teaching that begins with KDU's quality programmes, staff and learning environment.

Lecturers undergo specialised training in the methodology of teaching and learning that facilitates the students' learning to groom them towards being independent learners. These students will continue to excel because they are life-long learners.

The SMART teaching and learning approach provides opportunities for students to gather information from global communities, and analyse and apply their knowledge in meaningful contexts. Working individually and also in small groups, students gain essential soft-skills through interpersonal and intrapersonal interactions such as skills in communication, decision making and time management. These are elements that prepare students for a bright and promising future.

KDU College is a subsidiary of the Paramount Corporation Berhad, a public-listed company with divisions in education, property and construction development. Subsidiaries of the education division includes two colleges - KDU Petaling Jaya and KDU Penang; and the Sri KDU secondary and primary school.

Student Testimonials

Jerry Tan Hong Theam

KDU College is like a second home to me because I spend a lot of time and I have many friends here. The art gallery is the place where I get inspirations for my designs. Over here, besides learning about design, the lecturers also inculcate good values in life in our lessons. I am proud to say that I learnt about life, how to be a better person and how to treat others here.

My years at KDU College are filled with beautiful moments, challenges and excitement. I’ve discovered my best facets and encountered many opportunities through the college. I cherish my course mates and lecturers whom I‘ve formed strong bonds with.

Course: BSc. (Hons) in Computing Studies, Northumbria University, UK

I chose KDU College, Penang because KDU College, Penang had the best IT programme. I went around checking out IT programmes in other colleges, but realized that KDU had the best course structure. I have been here for the past four years and I find that the facilities here up-to-date and the lecturers approachable. I have also improved on my communication skills during my time in the Centre for English Language (CEL) and I am now able to speak English confidently in public.
