About PPIPT & UniMAP


School of Business Innovation and Technopreneurship (PPIPT) has approved its establishment on June 4, 2010. PPIPT was established with the aim to be a catalyst in the course of economic and intermediate knowledge in the field of business and management to all departments and colleges of engineering particularly as well as Perlis community in general.

Starting July 2009, PPIPT offers two degree programs:

  • Bachelor of Business (Honours) (Engineering Entrepreneurship)
  • Bachelor of Business (Honours) (International Business)

The main goal of the Bachelor of Business (Honours) (Engineering Entrepreneurship) is to produce technopreneurs to provide students with the specialized knowledge in entrepreneurship and business management as well as knowledge and skills based in engineering. This program is designed for students who are interested in entrepreneurship but want to develop their knowledge and skills base of engineering knowledge associated with the production and marketing of products based on technology and industry. It is hoped that this program later able to produce graduates who have an understanding and a more balanced skills in entrepreneurship and technical aspects through learning the basic subjects of engineering and entrepreneurship, self-reliance, is committed to the field of endeavor as well have high competitiveness to face the challenges of era of globalization.

The main goal of the Bachelor of Business (Honours) (International Business is to produce graduates who are knowledgeable as well as able to conduct their business in the international arena according to Malaysia's growing position in the context of international trade. Graduates of this program are trained to have the ability to combine and apply the knowledge and skills learned, have skills and be self-sufficient and able to find solutions to various design problems through innovative thinking and creative as well as have a noble and admirable character.


Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) is located at the northernmost part of the Malaysian peninsular, less than 35 km from the borders of Thailand. Originally known as KUKUM (Kolej Universiti Kejuruteraan Utara Malaysia, or Northern Malaysia University College of Engineering), it was approved by the Cabinet as a public institution of higher learning in May, 2001.

Its first intake comprised 116 engineering students, who started classes in June, 2002. It now has about 4000 students, and a workforce of more than 800 people comprising academic and non-academic staff. There are 19 programmes leading to B. Eng and six programmes leading to Diploma (Eng), offered through eight engineering schools. There are also numerous postgraduate degree programmes on offer. UniMAP boasts itself as a true-blue technical university which fulfills the interest of students who are inclined towards practical-based engineering education.

UniMAP graduates are budding engineers who have been groomed to be competent and confident enough to explore entrepreneurial possibilities upon graduation. They are expected to not only exhibit excellence in knowledge and skills directly related to their engineering fields of study, but are also proficient in communication and ICT skills, as well as possessing unsurpassed traits of professionalism and patriotism. It is hoped that because their education has been excellent, they will become the engineering leaders of tomorrow.

Indeed this is a testimony of UniMAP’s commitment to Engineering as a discipline. In order to achieve maximum benefit for the country at large, the areas of focus of public technical universities are determined by the government. In the case of UniMAP, it was decided that electronic-based engineering should be the focus. However, this does not mean that there is no room for other disciplines of engineering to be developed here. Rather, all related fields of engineering and technology that can support the advancement of electronic-based engineering, can be offered.
