About the CoE

Consistent with the objective of the University to encourage research activities, the University encourages staff member to form CoE as a platform to plan and discuss research topics. CoE does not imply a physical set-up, it can be a functional and strategic team, a shared facility that provides leadership, best practices, research, support and / or training in the focus area.

Objectives of the CoE

  • encourage shared learning through niche focus areas, services and research activities including research trainings and grants within the University;
  • promote inter-departmental or inter-varsity collaborations, and by using the best practices around a specific focus area to drive valued results in the research or service area;
  • register CoE of INTI International University with the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia

Vision

To drive INTI International University in order to remain competitive in the various fields of research, expertise and services at the national and international levels.

Mission

  • To encourage shared learning through niche focus areas, services and research activities including research trainings and grants within the University;
  • To promote inter-departmental or inter-varsity collaborations, and by using the best practices around a specific focus area to drive valued results in the research or service area;
  • To register CoE of INTI International University with the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia

Research Trip 2016

Activity conducted by Physical Activity Research Centre (PARC) - Hiking on Melati Hill

The goal of the INTI Physical activity center is to research and promote physical activity among community. In that essence, to promote the physical activity among INTI students and to make them understand the different intensities of exercise prescription, a hiking activity on Melati hill was conducted. The exercise physiology subject students (23 students), who just learned the exercise testing and exercise prescription, were the voluntary participants of this activity.
