Malaysia-Japan International Institute of Technology launched
The Malaysia-Japan International Institute of Technology (MJIT) was officially launched by Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak on 1 June 2012.
Situated at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur (UTM KL), the institute offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in engineering, and cultivates Japanese style engineering and technology-based education among its students.
MJIT also offers opportunities to undertake studies or research in Japanese organizations, through its support from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), the Malaysian government, the Japanese University Consortium (JUC) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
"At the heart of MJIT’s commitment is to provide affordable, accessible, Japanese-style education in a Malaysian setting, while creating a cutting-edge hub for R&D, and the institute's strong industry links, both in Malaysia and Japan," remarked Najib during his opening address.
The government of Malaysia has pledged RM793 million, which includes a RM250 million loan from Japan for laboratory equipment in MJIT.
"Earlier this year, in our commemorations of the 30th anniversary of the Look East Policy, the Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda and I affirmed the important role of this unique institution, which stands as a testament to the true strength of the bilateral relations between our nations," added Najib.
