The primary role of the Office of Student Affairs & Alumni, UTeM, is two-pronged;

ii) Providing related and relevant services to students
Special to students of UTeM, the consensus aspiration within the university is to uphold the university’s vision to be ‘creative and innovative’ in all aspects of student development agendas. Furthermore, this vision had been reiterated recently through the university’s tagline ‘ Always A Pioneer, Always Ahead’.
This ambitious vision may only be realized and is contingent upon the strong willingness and determination by the students as a whole as well as the entire UTeM’s community. Hence, the various sections and units at the Office of Student Affairs & Alumni will continue to set the impetus for the growth and development of students’ physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social and leadership skills.
