KDU Penang University College
Spurred by the success of KDU College in Damansara Jaya, Paramount Education opened KDU College Penang in 1991 to offer good-quality, high-value tertiary education in the Northern region.
After 25 years of track record as one the top colleges in Penang, with a 6-star college-based rating in the 2014/2015 Malaysian Quality Evaluation System for Private Colleges (MyQUEST) – the only private college in Penang and the Northern region to be awarded this prestigious rating for the large category – KDU College Penang has successfully received the Ministry of Education’s approval for its upgrade to university college status. This upgrade has led to the change of the college’s name to KDU Penang University College in 2015.
In its continuous efforts to improve on its educational services and to reinforce its position as a premier tertiary education institution, KDU Penang University College announced plans for the development of a new flagship campus in Batu Kawan which, when completed in 2019, will further spur the growth of this established educational brand in the Northern region.
As KDU Penang University College prepares for its new Batu Kawan campus, it continues to further strengthen its strong industry linkages to provide industry-relevant teaching and learning facilities, thereby meeting real-world market demands.
