A good thing about new universities is that they will definitely have new buildings. 

This is the case for the University College of Technology Sarawak (UCTS) whose name has been recently changed to the University of Technology Sarawak (UTS). The university was established back in 2013 and recently, the uni campus located in Sibu, Sarawak has gone viral on various social media platforms for how beautiful the buildings are.

If you would like to see it in its glory, you can do so via a virtual tour here.

On UTS’ official website, it is said that their campus is “the very first university in Malaysia to achieve a GBI (Green Building Index) ‘Platinum Index’ rating.”

“UTS’ campus incorporates planning, design and green architecture simultaneously and effectively to create a fully integrated, comfortable, user-friendly and conducive for research, teaching and learning environment.”


What is a GBI rating?

According to GBI’s website, a building is evaluated using 6 criteria and they are:

  • Energy Efficiency
  • Indoor Environment Quality
  • Materials and Resources
  • Sustainable Site Planning & Management
  • Water Efficiency
  • Innovation

In order to get platinum, the building will have to get a score of 86 and above. You can read more about the GBI rating here.

Scholarships up for grabs

A post by the Sarawak’s Department of Information mentions that UTS is owned fully by the Sarawakian government and the institution focuses on research and innovation in community development in order to turn Sarawak into an advanced state by 2030 and the digitalisation of Sarawak.

It is said by the Chief Minister that the government has also allocated money as scholarships to Sarawakian students to attend the higher learning institution, reported Utusan Borneo.

Well, as time goes by, tech gets even more complicated and we definitely need to sow seeds in that field as well. This is certainly a great looking uni which will no doubt offer quality education.
