During a discussion of the School’s plans, Kulim Technology Park’s Group Chief Executive Director Dato’ Ahmad Shukry Tajuddin expressed his desire to see more programmes offered to meet the needs of high-tech industries, especially programmes related to emerging technologies.

Another APG member, Prof Ahmad Yusof, said that credit transfers or credit exemptions will offer flexibility to WOU students in planning their courses of study. Responding to this suggestion, WOU’s Registrar Yeong Sik Kheong said that WOU is already heading in this direction.

The APG members, comprising a select group of academicians and industry experts, meet annually to review WOU’s programmes and assess their relevance to the local environment and the nation’s needs.

During the meeting, APG members provide comments, feedback and propose appropriate changes to the programme’s structure, goals and contents.
