Background



The Critical Agenda Project (CAP): Academia is a project entrusted by the Ministry of Education, Malaysia to all higher learning institutes in Malaysia. The main objective of this particular project is to record the annual performance of academicians nationwide.

CAP Academia is one of the 18 Critical Agenda Projects in the National Higher Learning 7 Core Strategic Plan (PSPTN), initiated by the Ministry of Education. It is the responsibility of the Department of Higher Learning and is monitored by the Office of Programme Management (PMO), which is assisted by the Ministry of Education's iPMO.

CAP Academic is conducted mainly because a top class higher learning institute is born from certain elements including the recruitment of academicians who strive to continuously uphold a culture of profesionalism; a conducive environment; strong relations with industry; and exchange of academicians via international collaborations. This particular element is crucial in shaping competent, high quality and competitive graduates. This is an important feature in the production of human capital with first class mentality.

To ensure that the culture of profesionalism is continually developed, improved and maintained within the current and future generation of academicians, priority is given to the improvement of quality in profesionalism through academic, research, and publication contributions; appointments based on expertise; awards as a sign of achievement and recognition. For the purpose of fulfilling the objectives of CAP Academia, seven (7) key performance indicators have been identified as targets for all higher learning institutes to strive for:

  1. Organization of National / International Level Seminars / Conferences in Association / Cooperation with Academic Institutions / Research Institutions / National Organizations / International Organizations.
