As the only University of Southampton campus located outside of the UK, University of Southampton Malaysia (UoSM) has come a long way since its inception in 2012 with a mission to be a leading institution for research, teaching, and innovation across Asia through our Engineering programmes.
UoSM is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and research, and to develop leaders in many disciplines who make a difference globally. Our programmes are taught by staff who are engaged in world-class research and cutting-edge professional practice and our students are at the heart of our ground-breaking work.
As part of its expansion plans, UoSM has now moved into its new 150,000sq ft state-of-the-art estate in Iskandar Puteri. The new campus is equipped with a myriad of open learning spaces, lecture halls, an Aerospace Lab, a Design Studio, Business Experimental Labs, and a 12-terminal Bloomberg Suite to enhance the quality and learning experience throughout the students’ journey with us.
