Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University College (KLMU)
The Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University College gained recognition as a university college in 2006 from the Ministry of Education
due to its dedication in providing affordable quality education.
The institution practises the practicality of
hands-on training as a teaching medium where learning becomes experience and has also recognised the importance of technology and
its influence on 21st century youths. This led to
the institutions' inclination towards multimedia-based conduit as its educational approach to teaching.
With a 20-year history, KLMU is also one of the longest serving private institution of higher learning and has enjoyed steady growth over the years.
Mission & Vision

- To produce graduates with appropriate
technical skills with integrity in addition
to possessing an analytical mindset as a
workforce capable of independence and

fullest potential with transferable skills
and proficiency in their industry
Based on the Institution's motto of "Real World Practice", KLMU values Experience integrated
with Academic Qualifications. The majority of KLMU's educators, professors and lecturers are recognised for their industrial experience and are familiar with real world practices.
Every instructor responsible for teaching and training students are required to have a minimum of 5 years' working experience. Based on practicality, students are taught to become
a part of a competitive workforce rather than a grade application scholar.
To ensure that students receive the fullest educational benefit from KLMU, the institution has discarded the use of whiteboards and has favoured multimedia applications based methods to train and coach students.
KLMU emphasises the use of videos, animations and graphics to coach students. This will further enable the students to visualise the programme concept while providing a better understanding to the subjects.
