【南方技职学院】

南方大学于2017年初公布了第三个五年转型革新发展纲领及八项发展计划,其中一项是发展南方技职学院。经过近半年的规划及合作方案的落实。

南方大学学院的前身为宽柔中学于1975年成立的宽柔专科部。1986年,宽中董事会正式向马来西亚教育部申请于宽柔专科部的基础上成立一所民办学院。在华社人士的坚持和极力争取之下,终于在1990年获教育部批准创办南方学院,为马来西亚第一所民办非营利高等学府。经历二十二年的苦心经营,高等教育部于2012年8月正式批准南方学院升格为南方大学学院。迄今经历了41年的发展进程。

南方大学学院坐落于马来西亚柔佛新山士古来区,位于“马来西亚依斯干达”(Iskandar Malaysia)经济特区,占地33英亩,其中25英亩为慈善老人萧畹香先生之献地。随着经济特区内的建设发展,南方大学在未来将跃升为国家重点发展院校之一,走向国际舞台。南方大学的校园风景宜人,富有浓厚的中华民族色彩及多元文化气息,体现多姿多彩、共荣共存的特色。

目前,南方大学学院共有7个学院3个学部及4个研究机构。7个学院为:人文与社会学院、企业与管理学院、艺术与设计学院、电机与电子工程学院、中医药学院、教育与公益学院以及南方技职学院(SITE)。3个学部为:大学基础学部,酒店与旅游学部以及专业教育与推广学部(SPACE),4个研究机构:华人文化与族群研究所,亚洲文艺复兴与跨文化书院,研究生与研究院,马来语言与文化研究所。南方大学在新发展愿景中,规划于2021年前升格为完整的大学,在2030年成为国际知名的大学。

Southern University College (also known as Southern UC) attained its current status in 2012. It was previously known as Southern College - established in 1990 as the first non-profit institute of higher-education in Malaysia to provide a local educational channel for high school graduates who were unable to further their studies in foreign countries or gain admission to other local tertiary educational institutions.

Historically, Southern UC has its origin 42 years ago (in 1975) in Foon Yew High School, Johor Bahru, offering an Advanced Studies Programme. In 1986, the Foon Yew Board of Directors applied to the Ministry of Education to set up a community funded college. Through the persistent effort of the Chinese community leaders, approval was subsequently obtained from the Ministry of Education in 1990 for the establishment of Southern College.

Southern UC is located in the Skudai area of Johor Bahru, Malaysia - an area within the Iskandar Malaysia Economic Zone. Its campus land is sized at 33 acres, mainly donated by philanthropist Mr. Seow Wan Heong. Following the development of Iskandar Malaysia Economic Zone, Southern UC will be one of the important educational institutions in Malaysia, and has poised itself to become an international educational institution. The Southern UC campus is a scenic spot, rich in Chinese traditional colours and a multicultural atmosphere that encompasses the spirit of co-existence and multi-culturism.

Currently, Southern UC has 7 faculties, 3 schools, and 4 research institutes. The 7 Faculties include Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Business and Management, Faculty of Art and Design, Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, Faculty of Chinese Medicine, Faculty of Education and Public Welfare and Southern Institute of Technical Education (SITE). The 3 schools comprised School of Foundation Studies, School of Tourism Hospitality Management (THM), and School of Professional & Continuing Education (SPACE). And the 4 research institutes include Institute of Graduate Studies and Research (IGSR), Research Institute of Chinese Ethnicity & Culture, Asian Renaissance and Literature Lyceum, and Research Institute of Malay Language and Culture. Southern UC is planning to become a full-fledged university by 2021, and aims to become a well-known International University by 2030.
