Polytechnic and Community College Education

Education and training at Polytechnics and Community Colleges are to fulfill the human capital needs of Malaysia through strategic management, relevant and dynamic curricula, effective training and career development programmes,  based on the National Education Philosophy.

The Polytechnics and Community Colleges serve as alternative paths for high school graduates to further their education apart from public universities.

Polytechnic Education

Community Colleges

Provides relevant technological or entrepreneurial education and training. These are aimed at upgrading basic skills as well as to promote research and development projects in collaboration with businesses and industries. Aim to provide life-long learning opportunities for the community and high school graduates particularly those who study under the vocational stream. Students will be trained, ‘re-skilled’ or ‘up-skilled’, leading to the award of certificate qualification.

 


Malaysia premier polytechnics in 2010 :
1) Politeknik Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah in Shah Alam (Selangor),
2) Politeknik Ungku Omar in Ipoh (Perak)
3) Politeknik Johor Baru (Johor).

The three premier polytechnics are said to focus on technical programmes in niche fields which address the needs of the services industry.

Many courses which cater to the needs of the services industry are in the pipeline and the ministry is targeting a polytechnic enrolment of 119, 000 students by 2015 through this initiative.

To upgrade the quality of polytechnics, diploma and higher diploma programmes will be given priority and certificate-level courses will no longer be offered from the July 2010 academic intake.

The ministry has targeted an increase of diploma students to 87, 440 in 2012 – a 30% increase from the 2009 figure of 60, 840.

34% of polytechnic teaching staff should receive at least a basic degree in their field of specialization.
