PROF IR. DR. MOHD AZRAAI BIN KASSIM
UTM School of Professional and Continuing Education (UTMSPACE)
UTMSPACE has long played her role in supporting the aspiration of this country with open learning opportunities. Established in 1993, UTMSPACE aims to strengthen the field of continuing education. It has extensive experience in developing modules based on the needs and requirements of industry. We have been providing a complete infrastructure and quality education programmes in various fields for graduates, in order to achieve the maximum level of education.
UTMSPACE has expanded the market of our professional programmes to national and international levels in order to provide the opportunities for everyone to enhance their skills and knowledge in line with the demands of the community, employers and industry. Through continuing education, one can improve the ability in their own field for being skilful and knowledgeable as this may enhance the growth in their career while raising the chance to continue their studies.
Thus, the concept of lifelong learning has long been practiced in this University. It is also in line with the third wave of the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education), which highlighted the importance of this approach in providing opportunities for more citizens to continue their studies, to enhance their career potential and improve the lives of families and communities and contribute towards the country’s aspiration in becoming a high-income nation.
I believe that every individual has the right to be given this opportunity and it should be taken up by everyone, so that no one is left behind in the wake of global change. UTMSPACE always opens its opportunities to all walks of life regardless of their backgrounds and ages to continue their studies at a higher level.
Adhering to our tagline of Shaping Minds, Building Careers, UTMSPACE will continue to strive in providing the best service to promote lifelong learning for the betterment of the global society. It is also the mission of UTMSPACE to continue leading the development of creative and innovative human capital through quality lifelong education.
