Core Function

CITra was developed in September 2015 and it continues to engage with the campus community and communities in the vicinity of the University to produce knowledgeable, talented (entrepreneurial), holistic and balanced students who can contribute substantially to Nation-building. The set of University Courses and credited Co-curricular courses ensure that four objectives of the Malaysian General Studies Subjects or MPU (Matapelajaran Pengajian Umum) are achieved.  The four objectives are as follows:

  1. Appraisal of philosophy, values and history
  2. Acquirement of soft-skills
  3. Broadening of the knowledge of Malaysia
  4. Community management, community engagement and/or service learning

CITra hence promotes a complementary learning experience apart from the academic programmes offered by the faculties.  This may be found in the following subjects;

a) General (Liberal) Studies Education and External Faculty Electives
b) 
Co-curricular Subject (consisting of sets of general life-skills courses, cultural courses and sports enhancement courses)
c) 
Community Engagement via the Social Engagement Course (Jalinan Masyarakat)
d)

As of 1st Jan 2016, CITra has an added responsibility which is aimed to increase graduate employability.
