Welcome Message From The Director

On behalf of Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, I would like to welcome all of you to our new Postgraduate Management Centre (PGM Centre) website.  Postgraduate studies and education in UMT has gone through many developments and changes, initially established since 2001 as an Out-campus Programme Unit and centralised Graduate School, until presently become a Post-Graduate Management Centre. Since 2003, we have produced more than 1100 doctoral and masters’ graduates. As of 2017, we have 38 field of studies by research and 5 taught courses program which focuses on our niche area i.e. Ocean and Aquatic Resource. These programmes are being offered by nine Schools and four Centres of Research Excellence. In order to encourage excellence graduates, UMT is offering two prestigious scholarships annually i.e. Tuanku Canselor Scholarship (BTC) and Universiti Malaysia Terengganu Scholarship (BUMT).

I am pleased to inform that the current enrolment of postgraduate students as of January 2017 stands at 1019 and our target enrolment until 2020 is 2000. Therefore, with the launching of our new PGM Centre website and on behalf of Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, I would like to offer potential candidates to enhance and upgrade your knowledge at UMT. I am hoping you will enjoy browsing through the website by choosing your field of interest and finally make your decision to come to us to achieve your dreams. I borrow the words from Umar ibnu  Khattab (R.A) – “Acquire Knowledge before you become leaders and pride prevents you from learning and you live in ignorance. This is to engage you from lifelong learning for you to become good leaders and move away from ignorance.”

Finally, I wish you the very best and hoping you will continue to achieve excellence in your future endeavours.
