Institute Megatech was established in November
1987 under the name of Pusat Bimbingan
Mega Sdn Bhd. Initially the college was set up
as a tuition center to provide academic support for
the following professional examinations:
• Engineering Council Examination, UK - Parts I &11
• Institution of Engineers Malaysia - Parts I & II
• City & Guilds of London Institute, UK - Parts I, II &111
As the number of students increased, the Directors of the college saw the need
a full time college to cater to the needs of the
Industries which were facing a shortage of skilled
Hence, in October 1988 Institute Megatech was formally established as a specialist college providing Certificate, Diploma and Higher Diploma courses in Electrical & Electronic Engineering. Courses were conducted both full-time and part-time to cater to the needs of school leavers and working adults.
From its humble beginnings, Institute Megatech has since developed and matured into a dynamic and vibrant full-fledged Engineering college which has pioneered the following educational achievements in Malaysia:-
• In 1991 for the first time a consortium of private colleges was formed in Malaysia to offer the then BTEC HND programmes, Institute Megatech takes pride in being one of the member colleges of this consortium. The HND programme created a pathway for successful Malaysian students to complete their degree in less than ONE year in a UK University thus creating the famous '2+T Degree concept within the Malaysian education scenario.
• Since its inception. Institute Megatech has been one of the few colleges which prepared students for the professional examinations offered by the Engineering Council (UK) and The Institution of Engineers Malaysia. Many professional engineers in the industry have benefited from the college's excellent performance record.
• Institute Megatech was among +he first to become a C&G examination center in Malaysia thus enabling candidates to sit for the world renowned City & Guilds examination in Malaysia.
• In 1994 Megatech became one of the first few private colleges to offer skills courses in the field of Industrial Electronics, Computing, Information Technology and Mechatronics. These skills courses were offered in collaboration with the Majlis Latihan Vokasional Kebangsaan, under the Ministry of Human Resources, Malaysia.
|Institute Megatech was also one of the first
few private colleges to offer tailor-made in-
house technical training programmes under
its Corporate Training Division to multinational
companies and many other manufacturing
conglomerates in the field of Engineering,
Computing and Management.
At Megatech, our business orientation has always been to educate and create a world of opportunities for our future generation. With a strong emphasis on engineering and IT skills education, we have been successfully producing highly-skilled graduates for the challenging and evolving work environment.
Today Institute Megatech graduates are much sought after in the industrial sector in Malaysia
Institute Megatech is not just a college for education but a centre of excellence that believes in providing a future for our young generation and a competent workforce for our dynamic nation,
