Universiti Kuala Lumpur and UniKL MIIT Teaching Factory Initiative

The teaching factory concept is based on the knowledge triangle notion aiming to become a new paradigm of both academic and industrial learning. The mission is to provide engineering activities and hands-on practice under industrial conditions for university students, while taking up research results and industrial learning activities for engineers and blue-collar workers. This teaching factory concept is actually creating duplication of actual industrial factories related to programmes offered. Students are exposed to the authentic environment of a simulated manufacturing plant or workshop hence gaining real industrial experiences. Some examples of teaching factory at UniKL have been developed such as manufacturing and ship building, food processing, aircraft MRO, animation, warehouse, automotive and solar technology.

Business Centre

To support “Teaching Factory” model at campus level, MIIT has taken an initiative by setting up a unit called “Business Center” (BC) which collaborates with other companies for Internal and External (customer) projects. This initiative formulate collaboration between academic members, alumnus, and students to involve with real industrial projects.
