Yang Jian Feng, China

Bachelor of Civil (Engineering), 4 Years

“UMP is a university focused on technical and engineering fields. It is a widely recognised university in Malaysia. In UMP, the process of teaching and learning is mostly based on practical concepts where students are exposed to ways to utilise simulation equipment besides just focusing on theoretical parts. I believe technical aspects are more important in studying engineering. I discovered about UMP from its website. I found out that this is one of the universities in Malaysia that focuses solely in engineering. UMP is the best engineering university in Malaysia”
