University Of Southampton Malaysia Campus, Iskandar Puteri
An agreement to establish the University of Southampton Malaysia Campus in EduCity was signed in January 2011. Southampton University has been ranked #1 by The Guardian for several consecutive years and has a global reputation for excellence in education and research. The 1.39—acre University of Southampton Malaysia Campus —open in 2012 with an intake of 60 students — is established as part of the Multi-Varsity Enterprise Complex. The university offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in electrical, mechanical, and aerospace engineering. University of Southampton Malaysia Campus initially offers undergraduate courses in engineering taught by Southampton professors in Malaysia for the first two years of the program, with a seamless transition to Southampton's campus in the UK for the final two years. University of Southampton Malaysia Campus in EduCity will boost the region's education offerings and enhance the nation's capacity towards becoming a high-income economy by 2020. It will also help address Malaysia's shortage of engineers and the country's ability to meet the demand for 200,000 engineers by 2020.
