Malaysia's first truly intelligent city, Cyberjaya was officially launched by the Fourth Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on 8th July 1999. The landmark event was witnessed by 25 of the world's top personalities in the IT world.
The Cyberjaya city lies at the heart of Malaysia's Multimedia Super-Corridor (MSC). The corridor covers 750 square kilometers (300 square miles) and is equipped with world-class physical infrastructure as well as next–generation 2.5-10 Gb multimedia network.
Cyberjaya is easily accessible from all parts in Malaysia. Connected to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur Sentral by the Express Rail Link (ERL), it is also linked to major business areas by a network of expressways including:
1. The North-South Expressway Central Link
2. The Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP)
3. The South Klang Valley Expressway and
4. The proposed Dedicated Highway.
Promising to be the city of the future, Cyberjaya is the home ground for many IT & technology companies as special cyberlaws, policies and practices tailored to enable
the Cyberjaya’s residents to achieve the full promise of multimedia.
First Phase of Multimedia University, Cyberjaya
The first phase of Multimedia University (Cyberjaya Campus) was built on an 80-acres plot of land at Cyberjaya with the cost of RM350 million. Architecturally, the campus is built on a city featuring a unique blend of lush tropical eco-friendly environment with the latest technology in IT infrastructure and facilities. Buildings in the designated Cyberjaya campus are wired up with fiber optic cable to enable the availability of broadband applications. The fiber linkages are monitored 24-hour via the telecom providers operation centre i.e. Telekom Malaysia’s Central Exchange in Cyberjaya.
Commencing its operation in June 1999, this ICT-driven campus is equipped with intelligent building systems, wireless technology system, satellite tele-education, digital library, state-of-art learning and research facilities as well as integrated computer education management system.
Second Phase of Multimedia University, Cyberjaya
The creation of a good learning environment for both student and faculty has always been placed as the top priority in MMU campus development. In year 2003, the 42-acres second phase development of the Cyberjaya Campus had commenced to cater to MMU’s increased number of campus population and to enhance its existing facilities. Architecturally, the campus will retain its techno-organic concept that underlines a pedagogic and inquisitive approach conducive for learning and experimentation.
To meet the teaching needs, two faculty buildings will be built together with high quality and efficient provision of utilities. The 3-year construction project also includes a main hall, an indoor sports centre including a gymnasium and a central food court to facilitate the physical health and mental growth of the students.
