Hock Seng Lee Bhd (HSL) has secured a RM291 million contract to construct the campus facilities for Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Mukah.

This UiTM Mukah  is scheduled to complete in 2015.

Universiti Teknologi Mara

Universiti Teknologi Mara

UiTM Sabah, Kota Kinabalu Campus, Sabah


UiTM is the only university in Malaysia that has a branch campus in every state of Malaysia. MARA started its first campus in Sabah in 1973.

In a span of 26 years, although most of these campuses started on temporary premises, their establishment has been strategies and well planned. At present, all state / branch campuses had been relocated to permanent sites.

Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) aims to produce Bumiputera (ethnic Malay) professionals, although the faculty includes other races.

Graduates to date number about 100,000. Disciplines include hotel and tourist management, accountancy, communication and media studies, and medical and health technology, encompassing 21 faculties and more than 200 academic programs.


The university has a nationwide presence in Malaysia, with three satellite campuses, 12 branch campuses, six city campuses, 25 franchise colleges and a "smart campus for the future." The main campus is in Shah Alam, the capital of Selangor, southwest of Kuala Lumpur.

The university's faculties comprise about 4,000 academics, scholars and researchers. Diplomas, bachelor's and master's degrees, and Ph.D.s are offered in various disciplines.


UiTM is closely linked to the development of the independent Malaysian nation. It began in 1956 as Dewan Latehan RIDA (Rural and Industrial Development Authority Training Center) in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. The school became known as Maktab MARA (MARA College) in 1965. The name change meant that the college no longer operated under RIDA and instead became the most important unit of the MARA Training Division.

MARA stands for Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Council of Trust for the Indigenous People). Petaling Jaya is a satellite town of the federal territory Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and is located in the Petaling district


The school was renamed Institut Teknologi MARA in 1967. Its establishment came as a response to a need in Malaysia for trained professionals, especially among Bumiputeras.


UiTM recently set up two research institutes:

1) the Institute of Biotechnology

2) the Science Institute.

UiTM  Sabah

Universiti Teknologi Mara UiTM Sabah is given a development allocation of RM130 million under the 9MP to build a library, an academic complex and a satellite laboratory. The project started in 2007.

Universiti Teknologi MARA's (UiTM) history can be traced back to the establishment of Dewan Latehan RIDA in the 1956, later known as Institut Teknologi MARA. Its upgrading to a university status was proclaimed on August 26, 1999 by the then Prime Minister, YAB Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

UiTM's vision is to establish itself as a premier university of outstanding scholarships and academic excellence capable of providing leadership through Bumiputera's dynamic involvement in all professional fields of world-class standards in order to produce globally competitive graduates of sound ethical standing.

Its mission is to enhance knowledge and expertise of Bumiputeras in all fields of study through professional programmes, research work, and community service based on moral values and professional ethics.

Emphasis on research is on top of UiTM's agenda. This commitment is realized through the establishment of several research institutes namely Institut Bioteknologi UiTM (IBU), Institut Sains (focusing on fundamental sciences), Microwave Technology Centre, Environment Management Centre, and the National Soil Erosion Centre. Research output have also increased since 1999 with a quantum leap in obtaining both national and international research grants and winning national as well as international awards.

The government has allocated RM3.2 billion to Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) under the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) to help the university create more Bumiputera professionals.

The allocation was the biggest given to a university under the 9MP. UiTM, with 85,000 students, is the largest institution of higher learning in Malaysia among the 18 public universities in the country.

Universiti Teknologi Mara gets a special place in the Malaysia. It was established to provide knowledge to Bumiputeras and to reduce the gap between Bumiputeras and non-Bumiputeras, particularly in professional areas.
