Pejabat Hubungan Industri (PHI) was established in UKM in late 2007 after Ministry of HIgher Education (MOHE) introduced the new Deputy Vice-Chancellor for the newly appointed Research Universities in Malaysia.
PHI is the Industry Liaison Office of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and acts as the matchmaker in facilitating the industry engagement and partnerships ;
a) in enhancement of industry perception of the quality of UKM graduates; and
b) in collaborative R & D, consultancy and commercialization with research groups from faculties, institutes and centres.
Together with the Faculties, Institutes and UKM Holdings, PHI facilitates the bridging process between the industry and UKM.
