University of Malaya.
The University of Malaya (UM) is a public research university located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is one of the top 100 universities in the world. It is also the oldest university in Malaysia and is the highest ranking Malaysian institution of higher education according to several international ranking agencies. The university has graduated two prime ministers of Malaysia, and other political, business, and cultural figures of national prominence.
The predecessor of the university, King Edward VII College of Medicine, was established on 28 September 1905 in Singapore, then a territory of the British Empire. In October 1949, the merger of the King Edward VII College of Medicine and Raffles College created the university. Rapid growth during its first decade caused the university to organize as two autonomous divisions on 15 January 1959, one located in Singapore and the other in Kuala Lumpur. In 1960, the government of Malaysia indicated that these two divisions should become autonomous and separate national universities. One branch was located in Singapore, later becoming the National University of Singapore after the independence of Singapore from Malaysia, and the other branch was located in Kuala Lumpur, retaining the name University of Malaya. Legislation was passed in 1961 and the University of Malaya was established on 1 January 1962. In 2012, UM was granted autonomy by the Ministry of Higher Education.
Vellore Institute of Technology(VIT) was founded in 1984 as Vellore Engineering College by the Chancellor, Dr. G. Viswanathan. VIT attracts students from the all the states of India and more than 51 different countries because of its academic excellence.
VIT has introduced many innovations in academic processes which adds value to every student. FFCS (Fully Flexible Credit System), PBL (Project Based Learning) for better learning, fully digitized academic portals that assist students in equipping which kindles the interest and the curiosity of students, which moulds them to be better problem solver, 8th module in every subject being handled by industrial experts,making the students contextualize the concepts they study in the classroom, are a few of the innovations that VIT has introduced.
