Accreditation & Recognition of MMU Programmes

For Professional Programmes like Engineering and Accountancy, MMU seeks recognition from the respective professional bodies. The relevant professional bodies are as follows:

i) Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM)
ii) Malaysian Association of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA)

Recognition by these Professional Bodies is necessary to enable graduates from the programmes to gain professional recognition. Graduates in possession of an unrecognised degree can not be registered with these Professional Bodies.

MMU has also gained recognition from the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), UK in addition to the MICPA recognition.

Meanwhile, recognition from JPA is necessary to enable graduates to be employed in the Public/Government sector. Without JPA's recognition, graduates can only gain employment in the private sector. In this regard, MMU's programme that has been accredited by LAN shall be forwarded to JPA by LAN itself. The list of programmes submitted by LAN will be considered in the JPA's 'Jawatankuasa Tetap Penilaian dan Pengiktirafan Kelayakan (JTPPK)'' which is the government's committee to decide on granting the recognition.

New centre to nurture technopreneurs

BY SHOM TEOH

THE value of a good IT infrastructure lies not in how much it costs but in what it can do to influence the culture of its users, according to computer hardware giant Sun Microsystems Inc.

John Gage, the company’s chief researcher, said that merely investing in hardware and software products will not be sufficient to transform a society into an innovative and entrepreneurial one.

That is why there are high hopes for the country’s newly-built Java Technopreneur Development Centre in Cyberjaya. “It is a place that will encourage technopreneurial activities and build a culture for a knowledge-based economy,” Gage said.

He was speaking at the launch of the centre last week. It was jointly developed by the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDC) and Multimedia University (MMU).

The RM1mil development centre is part of an ecological system aimed at nurturing entrepreneurial talents, Gage said.

The centre provides infrastructure support, Java training, and business development guidance to promising technopreneurs utilising Java-based technology. It will focus on key technology areas such as embedded systems, intelligent systems, wireless and mobility and advanced software.

“Java is a great tool for technopreneurs to develop secure, robust and useful applications, which will help improve people’s lives all over the world,” Gage said.

The 2,700sq ft centre is located at MDC’s Central Incubator-Accelerator Centre inside MMU’s Cyberjaya campus.

Cheam Tat Inn, managing director of Sun Microsystems Malaysia, said the centre will serve as a platform to promote collaboration between local and international enterprises.

MMU president Prof Dr Ghauth Jasmon said locating the centre close to the campus would certainly benefit students, as the university was “fully committed to the teaching of Java in our engineering and IT courses.”

Undergraduates from other disciplines could also be roped in to work on a part-time basis at the centre, allowing them to gain valuable practical experience in the process, he said.

MDC vice-president Dr Wilson Tay said many final year students have commercially viable ideas for their final-year projects. “With mentoring, they can translate their ideas into reality,” he said.
