About our University
Brief information about our beloved university that makes us who we are today.
Leader of Transformation
Universiti Selangor (UNISEL), formerly known as Universiti Industri Selangor was established on 23rd August 1999 and was given an approval under Private Higher Education Institutions Act 1996 (Act 555) on 14 March 2000. We are currently operating at two campuses; the sprawling 1000-acre Main Campus in Bestari Jaya and the City Campus in Shah Alam. Our establishment is in line with the State Government’s intention to make Selangor the leading regional education hub. Selangor plays an active role in the delivery of higher education programmes in order to enhance the development of human capital excellence. As one of the earliest private institutions of higher learning in Malaysia, UNISEL is unique as it is Malaysia’s first state-owned university.
