The Mace of Universiti Teknologi MARA is in the form of a Malay keris (dagger) known as the Keris Agung and accompanied by a pair of long lances known as the Tombak Agung. Both items symbolise UiTM as an institution of higher learning for bumiputeras which is unique, strong and pure.

The natural and genuine characteristics of a Malay keris in the Keris Agung represent the philosophy behind the establishment of Universiti Teknologi MARA. These were adapted from the creation of a keris known as Keris Potong Barat.

The motif on the hilt of Keris Agung is a yellow gourd flower, the hilt ring has a bamboo shoot motif and the sheath is covered with Bunga Tanjung (Mimusops Elengi).



To establish UiTM as a premier university of outstanding scholarship and academic excellence capable of providing leadership to Bumiputeras’s dynamic involvement in all professional fields of world-class standards in order to produce globally competitive graduates of sound ethical standing.


Research Management Centre (RMC)  is the research arm of the university.  Formerly known as Research Management Institute (RMI), it was created to manage research, consultancy, intellectual property protection and commercialisation.  In April 2015, RMI was renamed  Institute of Research Management & Innovation (IRMI).  Its duties are extended to initiate new research and innovation activities. IRMI has five divisions which are responsible to manage, monitor and assist in grant applications.  The divisions are Research, Consultancy, Innovation, Publication, and ICT Support.
