KDU College Penang’s School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts (SHTCA) was established in 1991 with the primary focus of being the first education provider in the northern region to provide top class hospitality education to young Malaysians who are keen to enter the country’s booming hospitality industry.

It ran its first program namely the Diploma in Hotel and Catering Management program in 1991. Since its inception, the school has grown by leaps and bounds to become the first and best hospitality, tourism and culinary arts school in Penang.

The success of the school swiftly brought about a partnership with the IMI University Centre (IMI) from Lucerne, Switzerland (the birth place of the hospitality industry) in 1997 and with it, KDU College Penang quickly became the first private college to offer students the opportunity to obtain prestigious Swiss diploma and degree qualifications without having to go abroad.

Based on IMI and industry feedback, the school served up popular programs such as the IMI Bachelor of Arts in International Hotel and Tourism Management (3+0), IMI Diploma in International Hotel and Tourism Management, KDU-IMI Diploma in Professional Chef Training and KDU-IMI Certificate in Professional Chef Training program.

The programs were a hit due to the unique features of the programs which provided exposure to students with industry placements in reputable 5-star local or international hotels and restaurants.

Thousands of students were also given the option to transfer and to continue their studies in IMI Switzerland for a complete Swiss experience.

Today, the school houses 5-star training facilities such as

  • a hotel suite mock up room
  • front office mock up area
  • ‘Bon Appétit’ fine dining restaurant
  • six 5-star kitchens including our newly launched Carême (Patisserie)
  • Escoffier (Butchery) kitchens which is also the only training kitchen in the northern region specializing in art of Butchery.

KDU College Penang offers scholarships to deserving students who have achieve excellent results in the SPM Examination. Hostel accommodation is also provided to outstation students.
