The technical university college (TUC) was formed by government to produce highly skilled engineers which comprises both theoretical competency as well as practical competency. TUC graduates can be referred to as application-andpractical oriented engineers. Kolej Universiti Kejuruteraan Utara Malaysia (KUKUM) is one of the TUCs that was established more than 4 years ago. The practical and application oriented education requires student to experience the reality of engineering and technology in a real world context from an early stage of their professions development. Therefore, the collaboration programmes with the industry is one of the important parts for the student’s undergraduate program. In addition, besides attending regular lecturer and labs, students are also required to undergo industrial training (intra) for completing their degree program. This training is compulsory for all engineering students to fulfill the bachelor’s degree program. This training is also exposes the students with industrial environment; provide opportunities for students to apply the knowledge and skills acquired during their study to practical demands of the workplace and to develop interpersonal and communication skills required of a person working in a professional capacity. This paper is aims to describe the overview of collaboration between this university and industry.
