The agreement entails the UTB-Satellite Partners (SP) Bridging Programmes offered by the UTB and KI. The two UTB-SP Bridging Programmes under this agreement include the Bridging for Tomorrow’s Engineering (BriTE) and Bridging for Computing (BriCOMP).
Under this agreement, KI will offer a 14 Weeks Undergraduate Degree Entry Pathway to students who meet the University’s minimum entry requirements but fall short of points for admission to specific Engineering and Computing undergraduate degree programmes at UTB. This programme also offers to anyone who have been out of study for a period of time, the opportunity to upgrade their fundamental knowledge and skills required to further their study onto an engineering and computing degree programme.
Upon successful completion of the programme, the students will join UTB to undergo their Undergraduate Degree Programme.
