What is RU CPD?
Raffles University Centre of Professional Development (RU CPD) was founded in 2011 with the initial aim of supporting the younger generation to be industry-ready. The centre was established as part of Raffles University, a university registered under the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education. In 2022, RU CPD added services to focus on professional courses that promote lifelong learning.
RU CPD operates as a Community of Practice actively seeking collaboration with industry partners. By establishing extensive strategic alliances with various industries, our team at RU CPD provides a seamless interface between industries and our stakeholders, opening a world of opportunities for them. RU CPD also maintains close relationships with industry partners for collaborations on projects, research, commercialisation, and internships.
Additionally, RU CPD is fostering a culture of lifelong learning through upskilling, reskilling, and cross-skilling courses. To achieve this goal, RU CPD offers professional programmes, micro-credentials, TVET courses, and customised public or in-house training programs.
The primary objective of RU CPD is to facilitate assimilation across various generations and levels, enabling the industry to grow together through rebuilding, reinventing, and re-strategising careers.
Our vision is to be a world leader in adult training and education.
Our mission is to provide high quality training that supports lifelong learning and career progression.
