Faculties and Academic Programmes

OUM has established five faculties offering programmes in various disciplines that are relevant to the current and emerging trends in the industry. Each programme undergoes a series of stringent quality checks ranging from curriculum design, content and assessment methods.

The curriculum design is undertaken by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in the respective fields and verified by the Senate, comprising members of the academia as well as professionals from the industry. The syllabus of the programmes are frequently reviewed to reflect changes that occur in technology and new industrial practices. Each programme is approved by the National Accreditation Board prior to being offered to the public.

OUM Support Centres

Apart from the faculties, OUM has established five centres and an institute to complement and support the delivery of its academic programmes.

Learning Centres

Apart from its main campus situated at Jalan Tun Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, OUM has established a strong network of learning centres nationwide and also uses facilities at selected public and private institutions of higher learning. These learning centres are strategically located at major cities and towns, from Peninsular Malaysia to Sabah and Sarawak.

Currently, OUM has 53 Learning Centres nationwide. The Learning Centres are managed by a team of administrators. As part of the learning environment infrastructure, OUM’s Learning Centres are fully equipped with tutorial rooms, computer laboratories, library and Internet facilities.
