Virtual signing and source of pride: Universiti Teknology PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia
On June 14th a Credit Transfer Agreement was finalised between the University of Adelaide and Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia.
Malaysia is a key partner for the University of Adelaide with a long-established history of collaboration. The Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Adelaide, Professor Peter Høj AC and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (External Engagement), Dr Jessica Gallagher, participated in the virtual signing ceremony with UTP. Managed by the International Business Development team, this agreement formalises a 2+2 pathway into the University’s Bachelor of Science (Honours) (Chemistry) and a 2+2 pathway into our Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Petroleum), both in the Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology.
Education has always been pivotal to the relationship between Australia and Malaysia. The University’s relationship with UTP is also a source of great pride: former UTP Pro Chancellor - Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin is an engineering graduate from the University of Adelaide.
