Universiti Geomatika Malaysia (UGM) started as a Vocational Centre in 2000, carving a niche in Land Surveying. Noting a growing demand for such a specialisation, Geomatika submitted an application for college status and obtained the approval from the Ministry of Education.
Due to overwhelming demand, Geomatika established its Department of Geospatial and Land Development and launched the Centre of GIS (CeGIS) Short Courses Program in Geospatial Technology as well as Certificate in Land Assistantship Surveying.
As part of Malaysian tertiary education ecosystem, UGM has aligned its strategies with The National Transformational Program (NTP) under the NKEA, in tangent with the nation’s plan to be a developed nation by 2020. In 2014, GUC was awarded the status of a full university college by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) (MO).
Our continuous engagements with various stakeholders ensure that our commitment towards the delivery of the programs and high quality experience are being obtained by the students. In addition to the core subject matter, UGM also provides a set of soft skills that are necessary for students to succeed both in their career.
To date, Geomatika Educational Group has established satellite campuses in Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, and Keningau. We are planning to launch other satellite campuses in Malaysia and abroad within three years. UGM is committed to provide excellent and quality tertiary education to local and international students.
