Universiti Teknologi Malaysia provides rich opportunities for students to build and grow. We believe that student must equip themselves not only with academic qualifications, but also with soft skills. Soft skills such as communications, teamwork, conflict management, creative thinking, problem solving may not come from the classroom, but it is vital to have in today’s competitive world.
For this reason we provide a platform for students to involve in various clubs and associations that suits their varied interests, hobbies and backgrounds. There are currently 52 clubs and societies in UTM that add color and diversity to the campus life.
All these clubs and societies are classified into leadership organizations, academic organizations, non-academic organizations, religious organizations, art organizations and student chapter. With all of these organizations, there is always something for everybody. However, we aim to grow bigger, if you think that there is a gap to be filled, you can refer to the Office of Student Affairs and Alumni to get the guideline on how you can set up your own student society. You can explore the full list of existing clubs and societies in the student association section.
