Educating & Humanizing

Our tagline consists of two words that represent our brand promise. At the core of everything we do, whether through research, teaching, or community service, we are educators. The ultimate purpose of why we educate is based on the Malay concept of ‘untuk menjadi orang’, which literally means to become human. This concept is one that transcends the biological definition of being human, and embraces one where the term to become human means to embody all the virtues of humanity, and everything good that humanity stands for.

The Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities (FSSH) is an innovation-driven faculty that specializes in social sciences and humanities disciplines, in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, a research university that excels in engineering, science and technology.

We provide the human aspect to an ever-changing world, moving forward to embrace the challenges and opportunities of the Industrial Revolution 4.0. In the race to automate and embrace technology, we provide the fundamentals what is important behind the technology – humanity.
