The Faculty of Applied Science is one of the university's core science and technology faculties. The faculties strives to continuously provide a dynamic environment that seeks to foster academic innovations and excellence in teaching, learning and research. In all of our activities, be it teaching, research or outreach, we aim to operate with a forward-thinking, results-oriented and community-responsive approach - in persuit of realising our vision of becoming a premier institution in science and technology .


PROGRAMME PROFILE Pre-diploma science programme is focusing on basic sciences and mathematics. The minimum duration of this programme is one semester which can be extended to two semesters depending on the student’s performance. The courses offered are Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and English. Graduates with Pre-Diploma may further their education in any science and technology based diploma programmes in UiTM offered by various faculties such as Applied Sciences, Allied Health, Pharmacy, Engineering, Architecture, Planning & Surveying, Information Technology & Quantitative Sciences as well as Sport Science & Recreation

The objectives of this programme are:

  • To increase the number of Bumiputera students in Science and Technology programmes.
  • To help Bumiputera students to deepen their basic knowledge and understanding of science concepts, laws, principles and laboratory experiences in their field of study before they further the Science and Technology based diploma programmes.
  • To give an opportunity to the Bumiputera students to increase their academic qualification to further their study to diploma level

AS117 - Diploma Industri Perkayuan

I wish to welcome you to the website of Department of Wood Industries. This website hopes to provide information and guide to students, researchers and industrial sector . Our commitment to excellence in education of wood-based which train more bumiputra to get higher skills and knowledge in managing aspects and producing aspects in the wood – based industry in present and future, increase the opportunity for bumiputra to develop their career and to make Mara University of Technology become the center of cooperation and reference inside and outside the country in producing wood products from rainforest . We also welcome to those researchers and industrial sector who want to collaborate with researchers in UiTM or those who want to use our facilities and consult our experts . This is some of our history and background. Diploma in Wood – Based Industry (Diploma Industri Perkayuan) or Diploma in Wood – Technology is established in 1973 under the Faculty of Applied Sciences. It was the one and only Diploma Program in Malaysia during that time. In the beginning, this course was accomplished in Shah Alam. Then, for some infrastructure reason, this course was transfer to UiTM Pahang branch (Jengka), which provide a better infrastructure facilities and more space that suitable for this course studies environment. This transfer was accomplished in 1995 .



Diploma in Science (DIS) was offered at UiTM Cawangan Pahang, UiTM Cawangan Perlis, UiTM Cawangan Negeri Sembilan, UiTM Cawangan Terengganu, UiTM Cawangan Sabah and UiTM Cawangan Sarawak. This programme was conducted over 5 semesters (90 credit hours). There are two flows for final year (semester 4 and 5) which are physical and biological flows. This programme emphasizes on strengthening the knowledge of students in Science and Mathematics. Apart from this, students are also exposed to various lab skills that cover the area of Chemistry, Physics and Biology. The graduates of this programme can further their studies in a vast area at degree level.
