School of Multimedia Technology & Communication (SMMTC)


Primarily established to develop and promote management education, UUM offers a number of academic programmes especially geared towards providing a broad spectrum of knowledge and intellectual skills in various management areas.

SMMTC was formed to merge three areas, namely Multimedia, Technology Media and Communication. These areas highly relate to each other; where communication deals with how humans interact to convey meaningful messages. These messages are the “contents” which can be enhanced with different media forms to be disseminated through traditional or new medium.

Its two departments: Multimedia Technology and Communication, are consistently working on providing the highest possible quality of education to prepare the next generation of leaders in the three areas. We are committed to meeting the challenges of the future and have nearly 80 faculty members, including professors, senior lecturers and visiting academics with a depth and range of experience, whose research interests represent urgent challenges for our nation and communities.

To get a sense of the School’s intellectual life, our fields of expertise include multimedia design, interaction design, media studies, web and mobile technology, organizational, corporate and international communications, journalism, broadcasting, advertising, edutainment, and filming.
