Foundation in Engineering for Spanish Universities

Kursus Persediaan Kejuruteraan Universiti Sepanyol

In response to the rapidly increasing industrial demand, a collaborative effort between the Malaysian and Spanish governments gave birth to UniKL MSI. Since August 2002, UniKL MSI which is located in Kulim Hi-Tech Park, Kedah offers automotive engineering programme with the combination of theoretical training and practical application. This programme is Self Sponsored  and also Young Talent Development Programme (YTP).

In July 2008, UniKL MSI launched a Pre-Spain Programme under MARA sponsorship. The Pre-Spain Programme is using 100% Edexcel A-level system with an additional subject in Spanish. Students who have completed 2 years of Pre-Spain Program at UniKL MSI are eligible to enter into any field of engineering courses at three of the most established and prestigious universities in Spain.
The Pre-Spain Programme provides students with professional and dedicated academicians, who are committed towards preparing students to excel in their future undertakings.
