On 9th December 2011, UTP Alumni welcomed another addition to its family through the establishment of its branch in Pasir Gudang, Johor. The event started with the sharing of UTP Alumni activities by Ms Penny Goh, the representative of UTP Alumni Association. The event continued with an officiating speech by Tuan Haji Talhah Hasan, Senior Manager of Student Support Services Department by stressing on the role of alumni members and how they can contribute back to their alma mater.
The rationale of forming UTP Alumni International Chapters is based on the increasing need to enhance bilateral cooperation and people-to-people links with UTP Alumni in other countries. Dated 2nd July 2011, the sixth UTP Alumni International Chapter has been successfully established in Indonesia. Tuan Haji Mohamed Noor Rosli Baharom, the UTP Deputy Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs & Alumni officiated the establishment in the presence of Mr Mohd Hilmi Hasan, President of UTP Alumni Association and Miss Hexi Bimba Andale, UTP Alumni of Indonesia Chapter President. This sixth UTP Alumni International Chapter is part of UTP Alumni’s continuous efforts to provide valuable contributions to UTP graduates, its alma mater, and the society through an alumni association.
Realizing the importance of International graduates, the UTP Alumni committee has taken the initiatives to set up International Chapters, with the aims to gather our foreign graduates, and help in promoting UTP and PETRONAS in their respective countries.
