Sunway University College


Sunway University College (formerly Sunway College) was formed with the belief and understanding that higher education is vital to the progress of the Nation. The institution received an auspicious start in 1987 when it was officially opened by the late Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Alhaj Ibni Almarhum Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah Alhaj Sultan of Selangor Darul Ehsan. Within a short span of time, its student numbers outgrew the original premises, eventually leading to the opening of the new, purpose-built campus.

The ground breaking ceremony was held on March 9, 1991 and in December 1992, the institution moved to this new campus, complete with a comprehensive range of modern academic and residential facilities. By January 1993, all academic sessions were conducted here. The grandest moment in the history of Sunway University College came on April 29, 1993 when the new campus was officially opened by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, then the 4th Prime Minister of Malaysia. It represents a major investment by the Sunway Group towards education.

That moment declared the aspirations of Sunway University College to become a world-class institution and the leader in private education in Malaysia and the ASEAN region, in line with the Prime Minister's vision that Malaysia should become a centre for academic excellence.

With the infrastructure and excellent resources, Sunway University College is suitably poised to meet the future demand for tertiary education, and cope with the challenges and goals of Malaysia's Vision 2020.

Sunway University College has attained enviable success in producing students of outstanding calibre, many of whom have achieved prestigious awards. It is, thus, no wonder that Sunway University College has received the praise and accolades of VIP visitors, including Malaysian and foreign dignitaries and representatives from overseas institutions and twinning partners. Among them have been numerous distinguished professors of international repute who have given guest lectures while on their visits.

Sunway University College has built a fine reputation and proud tradition of excellence and leadership. Yet never to rest on its laurels, the institution continues in its progress towards excellence. The institution's Founder and Chairman of the Sunway Group, YBhg Tan Sri Dato' Seri Dr Jeffrey Cheah has placed Sunway University College into a Trust in 1997, under the eminent chairmanship of YABhg Tun Omar Ong Yoke Lin. This auspicious occasion was witnessed by YB Dato' Seri Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak, the then Minister of Education. Such is the commitment of Sunway University College, Malaysia's Premier Private University College.
