The New Era University College started as New Era College in 1998. It was the outcome of many years of effort and unwavering support from the Chinese community. On 30 December 2016, New Era was promoted to university college by the Ministry of Higher Education. With that, New Era University College (NEUC) is now ready and able to play an even bigger role as a provider of quality community-orientated tertiary education to serve not only the needs of the community, but also that of the whole nation.
NEUC currently has nine faculties comprising of the Graduate School; Institute of International Education; Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences; Faculty of Computer Science and Information Computing Technology; Faculty of Art and Design; Faculty of Communication, Cinematic and Performing Arts; Faculty of Accountancy, Management and Economics; Faculty of Health, Safety, Security and Environment; as well as Institute of Ageing and Professional Care. Beside diploma and undergraduate programmes, the faculties offer postgraduate programmes up to Master’s and PhD levels.
To promote research on Chinese education in NEUC, the Tan Lark Sye Institute was formed in 2015. It is the hope and the vision of NEUC that it would make a strong impact and presence not only in Malaysia but also globally as a reputable and leading university rooted in Chinese education.
