At Multimedia University (MMU), it is renowned for being an excellent higher education institution in an effort to produce newer generations of leaders and quality workers. Other than that, the Institution has also paved for opportunities in building course programmes that can later contribute to the emerging high-tech ICT industry of the country which is consistent to the Silicon Valley-Stanford model in the United States.
Students that participate in the bustling university life at MMU Cyberjaya can also obtain invaluable experience at becoming creators of modern technology and not merely consumers.
In Malaysia, there are three MMU campuses with the first built in Melaka, then in Cyberjaya and Johor. The institution first started as a catalyst in conducting research projects and development projects as well as preserving a close tie with the industry through consistent cooperation activities. At present, after many years of modification to its system, it hosts up to 13 research centres that focus on specific niche areas such as nanotechnology, microsystems, biometrics, virtual reality, microwave, and telecommunication, engineering, photonics, advanced robotics, and business.
