Rebranding of UNISEL

The name "Universiti Industri Selangor" was very appropriate when the university was formed. It was in response to a particular need, that is, that of its industries that were burgeoning in Selangor in particular and the country in general.

However, over time, the country and its economy evolved. The university too has evolved accordingly. It is now more comprehensive, offering programmes not just for industries but other stakeholders as well.

This development calls for a review of the name of the university, as well as its vision, mission and core values. While industries will continue to be important stakeholders, the university has embraced a more holistic approach in developing human potential.

The word "industri" is therefore superfluous. Henceforth the university was re-named "University Selangor". The word "Selangor" is retained to reflect to ownership of the university by the state.

The acronym UNISEL is also retained due to its branding recognition and value.

To be a renowned university that nurtures professionals and scholars with high moral and ethical values

UNISEL is committed to provide excellent and conducive learning environment to develop competent, upright and ethical professionals and scholars
