On 17 November 2016, Multimedia University (MMU) marked its 20th anniversary with the strong rejuvenated desire to further boost Malaysia’s higher learning education sector particularly in the Information, Communications and Technology (ICT), Multimedia and digital economy domains. The historical celebration was officiated by Tuan Yang Terutama Tun Datuk Seri Utama Mohd. Khalil Yaakub, the Governor of Melaka and witnessed by Datuk Seri Utama Ir. Hj. Idris Hj. Haron, the Chief Minister of Melaka together with Tun Dato’ Seri Zaki Tun Azmi, the Chancellor of MMU and Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Dr. Sulaiman Mahbob, the Chairman of Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) and MMU as well as Professor Datuk Dr. Ahmad Ra Mohamed Eshaq, President of MMU. With MMU’s vast contributions in the past 20 years, particularly towards the development of skilled human capital, the university is now in the second era of its establishment to further strengthen the digital economy and wealth creation via producing experts and knowledge workers of the nation. In the officiating speech, Datuk Seri Utama Ir. Hj. Idris Hj. Haron expressed that Melaka is truly grateful to MMU and TM who have significantly helped the state to boost economic standing of both in states and national level. These skilled workers have enabled intense economic development within the state, especially around the Ayer Keroh area. He also stressed that, although MMU now has campuses in Cyberjaya and Iskandar Puteri, Johor, but the first campus in Bukit Beruang laid the foundations of the institution, and has become synonymous with Melaka. Tan Sri Dr. Sulaiman also expressed his gratitude to the Melaka government, on behalf of MMU and TM, for the support the institution had received from the day it opened its doors. “Without this undivided help and support, MMU would not have been able to enjoy its success today,” he concluded. At the same event, Tuan Yang Terutama Tun Mohd. Khalil also launched a coffee table book commemorating the MMU’s 20th anniversary while Tun Dato’ Seri Zaki Tun Azmi presented a mock cheque to Datuk Seri Utama Ir. Hj. Idris Hj. Haron amounted RM800,000 as a symbolic to the Ibnu Haitham Scholarship funded by Yayasan Universiti Multimedia (YUM) to eight Melaka citizens who are studying engineering and management programmes in MMU.
