INTI International University
INTI International University (IU), Laureate International Universities is a private university located in Putra Nilai, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia, 45 minutes from Kuala Lumpur. It was known as INTI University College until 31 May 2010 when the Higher Education Ministry announced its upgrade to university status. It is owned by INTI Education Group which has formalised its partnership with Laureate International Universities (the world’s largest and fastest growing private education network) in 2008. Programmes offered in IU include pre-university and foundation studies, diploma, degrees (home-grown and overseas transfers), and postgraduate degrees.
The name INTI was chosen to reflect the college's emphasis on quality in education — the hallmark of INTI College. The name INTI means "innermost" in Latin. The college motto, 'Quality, the essence of INTI', reflects the ongoing vision of INTI's leaders and staff members.History
The college opened in 1986 in Bangunan Sim Lim, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur. At its inception, the college enrolled only 37 students, but within 18 months the student population exceeded 400. Enrolment continued to climb, and in 1989 the college was re-located to Jalan Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur.
Two years later, with more than 900 full-time students, the college established a permanent campus: INTI College Subang Jaya (ICSJ). In 1991 and 1996 INTI opened branch campuses in Kuching, Sarawak and Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
INTI College Malaysia (ICM), the main campus, was established on 82 acres (330,000 m2) of land in Putra Nilai in 1998. In March 2000, INTI acquired International College Penang which is strategically located in the Bukit Jambul education township. In 2004, INTI continued to expand with three new associate campuses: Genting INTI International College, Metropolitan College and PJ College of Art & Design. To date, INTI has nine associate campuses in Malaysia.
On 4 September 2006, ICM received the Ministry of Higher Education's approval for upgrading to university college status. ICM became INTI University College (INTI-UC).
On 1 June, 2010, INTI-UC receives its upgrade to a full university from Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin.
In 2008, INTI merged with Laureate International Universities, becoming the first university in Malaysia, chosen to be Laureate International Education Group member.
On average, more than 30% of INTI-UC Engineering alumni graduating from UK and Australian universities such as University of Leeds, University of Bradford, University of Manchester, University of Nottingham, University of Birmingham, University of Adelaide, etc. received 1st Class Honours each year since 1998. For example, in the recent past:
* 37% of INTI students obtained 1st Class Honours in Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Adelaide in 2004.
* 31% of INTI students who attended University of Birmingham and University of Leeds in 2004 obtained 1st Class Honours.
The total enrolment for IU now stands at over 5,000.International presence
