Director's Foreword

 It is been a great honor for me to welcome you to Kolej Kemahiran Tinggi MARA Kuantan, Pahang. I humbly invite you to join us on this exciting journey of a memorable and successful beginning for our students in the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) field.

 In the era of the 4.0 Industry, we aimed to be a key player in the manufacturing engineering field, mainly in high end manufacturing technology which marked a difference in quality to serve the industry in the global arena. The career paths of engineers and technologists are wide-ranging and fulfilling. But KKTM Kuantan isn’t just about engineering and technology. Our goal is to develop creative problem-solving strengths in our students. We encourage students to grow as effective team players with a strong set of ethics, proficient communications skills and to be a creative and innovative individual that will be equally competent in research and professional positions.

 The Covid-19 situation that the entire globe is facing is challenging not only education but every industry in its own way.  With the changes that the pandemic has brought upon the entire world, we must accept that this is how the future will look like. I sincerely hope that our tremendous efforts in dealing with the new normal will be continued. Our academic staff has shown extraordinary creativity in managing the classes during this hard time. The common face-to-face teaching and learning method are now enhanced with the establishment of online classes using a variety of apps and software available. We have been experimenting with online learning for quite some time since the pandemic started and we found out that now, both the lecturers and the students are capable of using various technologies (i.e. software, apps, and device) in online learning, become more independent, creative and self-directed than before. Our main priority is to ensure that our students will continue to receive a first-rate education, even if in a new way.

 We are delighted that KKTM Kuantan is moving in the right direction concerning both the students and staff. With such a conducive environment, we hope to bring out the best in all students; in academic, technical, spiritual, and moral standard. As for the staff, I hope KKTM Kuantan will be a great training ground with a strong sense of ethics and professionalism.

 Soar high and bring glory to the world!
