Home > Partnership > Edutourism Program
Edutourism is based on the concept of knowledge-economy, in which “knowledge” is the key resource (Ojo & Yusofu, 2013) and it links education, tourism and economy. Institutions around the world use edutourism to make learning process more interesting (Perinotto, 2008), which in turn influences the internationalization of the institutions.
UniKL MICET Edutourism program places “education first” in which students from partner university enjoy our program through excursions while exploring the unique culture and heritage of the Malaysian people, particularly those in Melaka.
Being culturally competent in today’s multicultural and globalised world is an essential skill to study and work effectively with ethnically diverse friends and colleagues. UniKL MICET Edutourism program is aimed at participants with engineering background with program features such as practical sessions, industrial visit, and developing English communication skills.
In previous years, we have hosted participants from:
1. Institute of Technical Education (ITE) College Central, Singapore.
2. University of Lahore, Pakistan.
3. Princess Naradhiwas University, Thailand.
4. Politeknik ATI Padang, Indonesia.
