Higher Institution Centre of Excellence (HICoE)

Higher Institutions’ Centre of Excellence (HICoE) is an important initiative of the Ministry of Higher Education in its effort to inculcate research culture in Malaysian Institutes of Higher Learning.  Centres of Excellence represent vehicles for researchers and post graduate students to undertake multidisciplinary research, that are internationally recognised, meeting global standards and in areas of national importance.
