Vice-Chancellor’s Welcome Message


Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Welcome to Universiti Teknologi Brunei.

Alhamdulillah, since its establishment in 1986, Universiti Teknologi Brunei (UTB) which was previously known as Institut Teknologi Brunei (ITB), has seen encouraging  growth in quality of teaching and learning, research publications, graduate students intake and  collaborations with stakeholders.

Over the years, UTB has produced over 5,000 graduates and many of the graduates have achieved notable success ranging from winning international competitions, receiving scholarships for further studies, job offers to setting up their own company. At UTB, we tried to create a learning environment that is intellectually stimulating, diverse and rewarding. Both our undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes provide students with various skill sets and knowledge that can help in their professional development. Our modules and programmes are hands-on, relevant to industrial needs and the nation.

Currently UTB has 21 undergraduate, 5 taught Masters, Masters by Research and PhD Programmes. I am pleased to inform that UTB will be offering three new 4-year undergraduate degree programmes in B.Sc (Hons) in Food Science and Technology, B.Sc (Hons) in Applied Mathematics and Economics and B.Sc (Hons) in Computing with Data Analytics for August session. Another new initiative from UTB is BriTE@UTB, a bridging programme for tomorrow’s engineers, it caters for students and life-long learners who wish to upgrade their basic qualifications.

Our Vision “to be amongst the best 10 universities for Engineering and Technology in Southeast Asia by 2018” is a self-recognition of our ability to make a positive impact on Education and Research in Borneo and Southeast Asia. As the students are the heart of our focus, we are determined to give our best to nurture the students to be ‘360° graduates’: well-rounded individuals with social-economic responsibility, marketable and embedded in strong Melayu Islam Beraja (MIB) values.

To find out more about the university, please feel free to browse our website. Our prospectus for 2017 and UTB Pulse are also available online.

We look forward to welcoming you to Universiti Teknologi Brunei.

Thank you.
