University to make it five in Malaysia

Heriot-Watt University has opened its second overseas campus with a new centre in Malaysia.

The campus, based in the city of Putrajaya, will teach degrees in business and ­postgraduate studies in renewable energy, engineering and surveying.

Putrajaya is the university’s fifth campus and joins ­facilities in the Capital, the Borders, Orkney and Dubai.

It was officially opened by ­British high commissioner Simon Featherstone, and teaching will start in January.

The university is part of a £35 million development in Putrajaya and the whole campus will not be completed until 2014. The university said it will cater for 4000 students.

Professor Steve Chapman, principal and vice-chancellor of Heriot-Watt University, said: “Our vision is to ­create another centre of excellence alongside our campuses in the UK and Dubai.”
