Introduction

Founded in 1991 by Dato' Idrus Mohd Satha, President of Cosmopoint Group of Companies, and led by renowned academician and economist, YM Royal Professor Ungku A. Aziz, the Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University College (KLMU) offers diploma and degree programs that inculcates real world practice with high quality academic learning. KLMU is a progressive and innovative university college with five distinctive Faculties reflecting our diverse range of programs and sound emphasis on education as a pathway to professional success.

Mandated by the Entrepreneur Development Ministry to produce knowledge workers in ICT and Multimedia, and in line with one of the company's objectives to build an information-rich society that thrives on powerful digital tools and techniques to communicate, educate and excel at an affordable price, Cosmopoint started its expansion plans to make its programs accessible to all.

As a result, the Cosmopoint College of International Technology has grown to 17 metro campuses nationwide. The main state-of-the-art city campus, being KLMU, is strategically located in Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia. In recognition of the quality and commitment to delivering education excellence, the Malaysian Ministry of Education accorded university college status to Cosmopoint in 2006. KLMU also has been awarded the coveted MSC status and won the Enterprise 50 award for three years.

KLMU sets itself apart from the other private higher education institutions, specializing ICT and Multimedia education and training. It is also heavily involved in Research and Development, Software Development, Consulting and Multimedia Content Development. The ICT emphasis is infused throughout the other non-ICT courses in order for the graduates to succeed in the 21st century work force.
