UTM to stop diploma courses from June
15 March 2015
JOHOR BARU: Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) will stop its intake of candidates for full time diploma courses starting June this year.
UTM vice chancellor professor Dr Rose Alinda Alias (Academic and international) said while students who are pursuing their full time diploma courses now will complete their programmes within three years, the university will no longer take in SPM students for its full time diploma courses for session 2015/2016.
Asked on why the move, Rose Alinda said, it was because most of the diploma course lecturers have retired and they face manpower shortage.
"Another factor is the high cost of investment for the new laboratories," she added.
