Industry Advisory Panel (IAP) Members PDF Print E-mail

The University has taken another step to ensure that its education deliveries remain relevant with industrial practices.  In order to further strengthen its relationship with industry players, Industry Advisory Panel (IAP) was established and held its inaugural meeting on 7 May 2007.  The University invited twenty-four panel members consisting senior practitioners from the industry, all with vast experience and expertise in their respective fields, to assist in planning and continuously improving the quality of the programmes offered in UTP.  Industrial input from panel members help the University to further enhance its curriculum and to establish academic-industry collaboration.  Panel members are required to meet the heads of departments at least once a year to discuss the University’s academic curriculum, teaching methodology, facilities and practices to help it stay in tune with the emerging needs of the industry.
