ABOUT MALAYSIAN TECHNICAL COOPERATION PROGRAMME (MTCP) The Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) was first initiated at the First Commonwealth Heads of Government Regional Meeting (CHOGRM) for Asia Pacific Region in Sydney in February 1978. It was officially launched on 7 September 1980 at the 2nd CHOGRM in the New Delhi to signify Malaysia’s commitment to South-South Cooperation, in particular Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries (TCDC).In line with the spirit of South-South Cooperation, Malaysia through the MTCP shares its development experiences and expertise with other developing countries.The MTCP was first formulated based on the belief that the development of a country depends on the quality of its human resources. Annually, MTCP collaborates with its leading Training Institutions to conduct capacity building programmes in various key areas of development. Since its inceptions in 1980,more than 32,800 participants from 143 countries have benefited from the various programmes offered under MTCP

ABOUT MULTIMEDIA UNIVERSITY In 1996 the government of Malaysia was looking for methods to liberalise higher education in the nation, and to involve the private education sector in the development of this critical sector of human capital building. In October 1996,the then Telekom Malaysia was given the distinction by the Ministry of Education to set up the first private university in Malaysia.Being a natural extension of the existing ITTM campuses that TM already runs, TM accepted the invitation and Universiti Telekom was established in Melaka.A year later, with the planning of the MSC underway,the government was once again looking for a suitable candidate to construct a university in the heart of the MSC.In March 1997,TM was again honoured when it was given the task to set up this university, to be known as Multimedia University.Considering that the telecommunications industry was becoming closely linked with developments in ICT,expansion into an education field directly related to ICT is a natural strategic decision. Then, on 25th January 2016,MMU launched its third campus in Educity,Iskandar Puteri, Johor which exclusively delivers MMU Cinematic Arts Programme. MMU aspires to become a Top 100 University in Asia with Global Recognition through Quality Students and Staff Engaged in Innovative Academic Programmes and Research,driven by Academic and Commercial Revenue streams.
ABOUT FACULTY OF APPLIED COMMUNICATION (FAC) The Faculty of Applied Communication (FAC) was previously known as the Learning Institute for Empowerment (LiFE).The acronym of “FAC” uniquely represents the strength of communication being a salient academic attraction, aptly translated into a faculty for applied communication, a discipline that finds its most advantageous position in a media-driven world where social networking,media creation, computer-mediated communication and digital economy rise to prominence.FAC extends the learning opportunities on campus by incorporating professional internship and practical exposure to give students transformational experiences and confidence to join the workforce.With the incorporation of multimedia related subjects and an array of electives, including foreign languages makes our programme unique. Our graduates will be multimedia savvy communication strategists who are proficient in a minimum of three languages. FAC students and staff are dedicated to build and change the communication landscape.
