More details

MMU is a modern evolution of the Institute of Telecommunication and Information Technology (ITTM) and University Telekom.

The university won several awards related with the technology that they develop and use, for example in 2000, the Multimedia Learning System (MMLS) of MMU won the Asia Pacific MSC IT & Telecommunication Award (APMITTA) and the 2001 Asia Pacific Award for Best of Smart Learning Applications.

They also introduced E-scroll to its graduates. The E-Scroll is digitally signed and stored in a CR-ROM as well as recorded on the Smart-Card (microchip-based card). As more and more job applications go on-line, these graduates can attach their E-Scroll on the on-line applications before submitting it over the Internet. This eliminates the need for paper-based scrolls. The university also provides a Registry of Graduates homepage that will allow anyone to verify the validity of the E-Scroll.
