On Saturday April 18, some 50 UTS graduates came together at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Kuala Lumpur for an Alumni Reunion. It was fantastic to see a wide variety of guests in attendance, including many who had studied with UTS in Kuala Lumpur and also in Sydney. A number of graduates had travelled quite far to be there on the night. The MAAC was represented by Mr. Adrian Ong, Vice President of Alumni Relations.
Professor Bill Purcell, Deputy Vice Chancellor, International and Advancement, brought the audience up to date with news of UTS, particularly the exciting campus changes and developments. UTS is now ranked 20 in the under 50 category and top 30 in the world. UTS research work has been benchmarked as world class by global research professionals. UTS also opened new buildings in 2015, which includes a business school, science lab and new innovation hub. The University also signed an agreement with Sydney Cricket Ground to open a Sports Central Campus in 2016. Professor Attila Brungs, has been appointed as Vice Chancellor for UTS early this year. He is one of the youngest Vice Chancellor being appointed at the age of 42.
UTSMalaysian Alumni Chapter President Shankar Joyrama and Vice President Adrian Loo attended and were keen to encourage more alumni to get involved with their networks.
