Director's Message

Assalamu’alaikum wbt. and Warm Greetings,

The announcement on the rebranding of Curriculum Development Center to Academic Strategic Planning Centre (ASP Centre) is effective from 1st October 2018, in line with the restructuring of Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic & International) Portfolio.

ASP Centre is divided into 3 units - Academic Policy Division, Academic Planning & Monitoring Division and Learning Analytics Division. Academic Policy Division functions mainly to establish and improvise academic policies and guidelines in line with current requirements of University and the relevant authorities. The Academic Planning & Monitoring Division will be responsible on curriculum design and development processing of all academic programs offered by the University. While, the Learning Analytics Division is responsible for coordinating and analysing data related to academic matters.

Hopefully this introduction will provide a brief picture of our role among the campus community. Feel free to browse through our website for more details on our activities.
