HELP CAT was formerly known as the HELP International College of Technology (HICT). Based in Klang, the origin of HICT was the Sepang Institute of Technology (SIT), an institution founded in 1996 as a member of the Lion Group.
In May 2011, HELP CAT was established as a city college in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Its campus is located at Fraser Business Park, Sungai Besi, and is part of the multi-campus development of the HELP Group. The location enables students to enjoy the benefits of urban living and provides access to excellent facilities and services. Also, the city Light Rail Transit (LRT) connects Kuala Lumpur to the suburban areas like Subang Jaya, Petaling Jaya, Kelana Jaya, Cheras, Sentul and Gombak.
As an institution of higher learning, HELP CAT offers students the opportunity to pursue home-grown programmes (Foundation Studies in both Arts and Science, and Diplomas in Business, Accountancy, Business Information Systems, Computer Science, Hotel Management, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering). In tune with the objective of Malaysia to be a regional centre of educational excellence, HELP CAT has formed partnerships with a range of good overseas universities to conduct ‘3+0’ programmes, examples being the University of London, and Anglia Ruskin University.
There are also vocational and professional programmes such as the Diploma in Culinary Arts with the outstanding Institut Paul Bocuse of France, and the accounting programmes like the Certified Accounting Technician and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants of ACCA, UK. The range of programmes offered, including the Foundation Studies in Arts and Science, will provide students with relevant pathways to undergraduate studies and professional qualifications that are connected to high-growth sectors with a strong demand for the employment of such graduates.
HELP CAT is a member of the distinguished HELP Group of educational institutions. In MyQuest 2012, the ranking exercise of approximately 250 private colleges conducted by the Education Ministry, HELP CAT was given a college ranking of 5 stars (excellent) for its student quality, resources, quality management system, and programme of graduate recognition. The HELP benchmark for quality education and academic standards will continue to distinguish our enterprise at HELP CAT.
