The pioneer batch students of the current Diploma programs (DET in Ship Design and DET in Ship Construction and Maintenance) had graduated in June 2007. It is expected that some will take up employment in the industries and some who attain good grades will have the opportunity to continue their study to a higher level. A Bachelor degree program of combined specializations is being planned to cater the requirement of these prospective students. The Government of Malaysia seeks to strengthen the capacity and the capability of the shipbuilding and repair sector under the Third Industrial Master Plan (IMP3) from 2006 to 2020. This is necessary as to reduce the outflow of capital for the acquisition of marine transport products, especially ships. The push to the shipbuilding and repair sector is amongst the strategic thrusts for the long-term growth and viability of the marine transport sector. In order to support and materialize the national industrial perspective in the marine transportation sector, sufficient number of professionals in the combined fields of specializations (naval architecture and shipbuilding) and others are necessary to be produced. Also, in line with the vision of UniKL it is timely for the university to train and develop technical entrepreneurs in the combined specializations of Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding to be able to participate in the relevant activities of the marine industries.
