Impressive new facilities and resources that will greatly enhance the learning experience of students will greet those enrolling for the new semester at INTI International College Subang (IICS) in January 2013.
Having delivered quality tertiary education for over two decades, IICS is at the final stage of reconstruction and upgrading works following an RM40 million investment to redevelop the campus. Embodying the concept of a cosmopolitan learning environment, with emphasis on openness and community, IICS will have capacity for 7,000 students from Malaysia and across the globe. Amenities will include a new three-storey building housing a 350-seat auditorium that will serve as an impressive venue for presentations by local and international speakers as well as ample learning spaces. It will also house INTI’s new School of Art & Design complete with a design gallery, studios, Macintosh and Autocad labs, materials library and design centre.

“The new college environment will see strategic and aesthetic improvements in the utilisation of space, design and colours,” said Dr Dominic Szambowski, President of IICS. “Purpose-built to be environmentally efficient, our state-of-the-art facilities will provide a functionality that can be adapted to changes in the social or educational environment.”
A new campus plaza will provide abundant space for outdoor meetings and open-air events as well as social and recreational activities to augment well-rounded personal development. Food and beverage outlets serving a variety of local and international fare will be accessible to INTI’s students, staff and visitors. Ample parking bays come with a sub-basement parking lot for 150 vehicles.
“Our commitment is to provide an environment which focuses on student-centred learning to adapt pedagogical approaches to students’ learning styles. We harness the latest technology available to deliver effective learning outcomes and that includes the ample resources that will come with the new facilities,” said Dr Szambowski.
Internationalism is an important pillar that holds up institutions of the Laureate International Universities network and the opportunity for members such as INTI to gain access to knowledge, thought processes, best practices, academic talent and resources across the distances makes this ‘Laureate advantage’ a unique one. Through Laureate’s support, INTI is able to provide its students with front-row seats to cutting edge global events such as the World Business Forum and Clinton Global Initiative, where they can learn from top global leaders discussing issues affecting the world today. They also have access to international faculty, overseas guest lecturers and study tours to INTI’s partner universities in other countries. This provides students access to an international learning experience beyond Malaysia as part of their studies and as part of their world class education at local prices.
Students of INTI benefit not only from its over 25 years of experience and strong track-record, but also gain from the global synergy and resources that Laureate International Universities provides. INTI is part of Laureate, the world’s largest private education network with a presence in 29 countries, with more than 60 accredited universities and 130 campuses, serving more than 740,000 students globally.
INTI will be holding its Open Day on December 15 – 16, 2012 (from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.). For more information call 03-56232800.
