Dr Parmjit Singh


Dr Parmjit Singh was installed as our first Pro Chancellor in July 2004.

He is Director of the Asian Pacific Institute of Information Technology (APIIT), a specialist educational centre founded in Malaysia in 1993. As such, his role as Pro Chancellor reflects our reputation as an international organisation that is attracting more and more students from overseas. 

APIIT is a specialist higher education centre for information technology (IT) and business and is our longest standing and largest overseas partner. APIIT’s distinguished director Parmjit is both a visionary and an internationalist. He has never seen national borders as barriers.

As someone who has been involved in IT for most of his professional life, Parmjit understands that the digital age is a global one. He has been involved in IT and education and training for more than 23 years and has been associated with APIIT since its inception. His commitment to provide education of the highest quality, designed to meet the career needs of students, has ensured that APIIT has gone from strength to strength.

Parmjit has a remarkable reputation and track record for his leadership in education in Malaysia. He has sat on many government and industry advisory bodies. He graduated in the fields of Computer Science and Business, and in 1996 was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Technology from Staffordshire University. His contributions to the IT industry were recognised as far back as 1990 when he was awarded "IT Personality of the Year".
