Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS)

Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS)

UNIMAS was the first university to be initiated as part of Wawasan 2020, a national vision where Malaysia will achieve the status of a fully-industrialised and developed nation. As Malaysia’s eighth and Sarawak’s first public university, we started with a modest intake of 118 students in two faculties – now, UNIMAS has 13,521 undergraduate and 1,417 postgraduate students spread across eight faculties.

Located in Sarawak in the island of Borneo, UNIMAS is ideally placed to fully benefit from the many opportunities for research literally in its backyard, with challenges of geography and geology as well as the diversity of biology and ethnicity. Through its ultra-modern campus, UNIMAS is making strong progress towards becoming a significant centre of higher learning and research in the academic world.

UNIMAS is a university committed to being contemporary in character and forward looking in developing its education system. The university employs innovative approaches to the teaching-learning process, and offers academic programmes which cater to the demands of the market. UNIMAS students are trained to be proficient in their respective disciplines through the core courses. A curriculum based on the concept of total development of the individual moulds students to be all-rounded individuals. UNIMAS graduates are able to cope not only in the existing workplace of today, but also in the newly emerging work environments of the future.
