The Centre for the Initiation of Talent and Industrial Training (CITra) operates as a supercentre that operates on a curricular engagement model. This refers to teaching, learning and scholarship that engages faculties, academies, students and members of the external community in a mutually beneficial collaborative endeavor. Such collaboration includes attending to community issues via structured experiential learning programmes, popularly known as community engagement. Such learning offers students a venue where talents are discovered and nurtured through collective projects. Other skills enhancement activities includes co curriculum education, entrepreneurship enculturation and work-based learning, also known as industrial training or structured internship programmes.
CITra is formerly known as The Section for Co-curricular Courses, External Electives and TITAS (SKET). Established in 8 March 2001, the section coordinates the teaching of a group of University courses, aimed at producing holistic, balanced and entrepreneurial graduates. Beginning in September of the Academic Session 2014/15, the course GXEX1417 - Social Engagement (Jalinan Masyarakat) was introduced. In this course, student evaluation is 100% based on his/her role in community engagement activities inclusive of peer review evaluation, stakeholders review and instructor evaluation.
