Razak Faculty of Technology and Informatics was formed on the 1st July 2018 with the merging of Razak School, Advanced Informatics School and Perdana School in UTM KL in line with UTM Synergy 4.0 transformation. The former UTM Razak School of Engineering and Advanced Technology (Razak School) was formed in May 2010 which was formerly the Business and Advanced Technology Centre (BATC). BATC started out as a Centre of Excellence in 1992 under an initiative conceived from the the fourth prime minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed. Over the years it has developed strong linkages with more than twenty-five industries and organizations, both locally and internationally, engaging in executive programmes, short courses, professional discourses and innovative research. This industry-linked and industry-driven focus will subsequently be injected into its undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. The UTM Advanced Informatics School is formerly CASE, and the Perdana School is now known as Perdana Center.
Razak Faculty runs both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. At the undergraduate level, we have the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design. This is an innovative programme with wide industrial applications. For postgraduate studies Razak Faculty offers Master of Philosophy, Master in Industrial Design, Master of Sustainable Urban Design and Doctor of Philosophy.
The Informatics department offers Master of Science in Business and Intelligence, Master in Software Engineering, Master in Information Assurance. Perdana Center offers Master of Science in Science and Policy Studies and Doctor of Philosophy in Science and Technology Policy Studies.
Razak School also offers and run Executive programmes at the diploma and postgraduate levels. These programmes are tailor-made for the industry and are run on modular basis, mostly during the weekends. Working executives are thus given a chance to improve their academic qualifications whilst benefitting from their working experience. The postgraduate programmes are the Engineering Doctorate (Engineering Business Management), Executive Masters in Occupational Safety and Health Management and Masters of Science (Engineering Business Management). The faculty also runs six Executive Diploma Programmes with its industrial partners. Razak Faculty is a forerunner in executive programmes and has set its own benchmark and standard which is highly regarded by others in the same playing field.
As one of the new faculty, Razak Faculty strives to be the forerunner in both academic and research endeavours. Its solid team of academic staff comprising of more than 80% PhD holders from various disciplines are its strongest asset. Backed by its dedicated support staff, Razak Faculty will work towards excellence and distinction.
