Kolej Teknologi Darulnaim (KTD) formerly known as Institut Teknologi Darulnaim (ITD) was formed by
Kelantan State Government in 1997. It is also a continuation of the legacy left by Tuan Guru Dato’ Bentara
Setia Haji Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, former Chief Minister of Kelantan, Malaysia. Kelantan, traditionally called
the “Veranda of Mecca” has always had long historical root and stronghold of traditional Islamic education
(Pondok) in Malaysia and South East Asia region. Kolej Teknologi Darulnaim (Darulnaim College of
Technology), after a handover, then began its operation in 2003 as a higher education initiative by HALUAN.
It is the completion of integrated educational initiatives from pre-schools, primary schools and secondary
schools throughout Malaysia. The harmony in which both HALUAN and Al-Marhum Tuan Guru shared in
viewing the value of Islamic emphasis in education, was materialized through the inception of KTD. As an
Islamic based institution, we aspire to be a waqaf learning institution in the future, benefiting the
community.

Tuan Guru Dato’ Bentara Setia •
Haji Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat

KTD offers diploma level programs in the fields of Islamic, management, and technological studies. The main
focus is to educate and increase the potential of students, especially the economically disadvantaged, to
become excellent graduates, with high moral compass and ready to serve their family and the society. Up
until 2020, we have produced 2219 local and foreign graduates, channeling them into various industries
while continuing to guide them to equally serve the community. We now aspire to expand further, to be
more financially viable to secure permanent site for College-University status.

We need your support and let’s together continue this glorious legacy.
Building an ummah; a shared responsibility, generating the reward till eternity!

HISTORY OF ESTABLISHMENT
• Kolej Teknologi Darulnaim (KTD) formerly known as Institut Teknologi Darulnaim (ITD) was formed by Kelantan
State Government in 1997. It is the brainchild of the late Tuan Guru Dato’ Bentara Setia Haji Nik Abdul Aziz Nik
Mat, Menteri Besar of Kelantan (1990 -2013), aimed at educating and producing admirable moral professionals.
The implementation was completed through EQ Resources Sdn.Bhd, a subsidiary of Permodalan Kelantan
Berhad owned by the Kelantan State Economic Development Corporation (PKINK).
• A series of strategic meetings were held between representatives of HALUAN (Himpunan Lepasan Institusi
Pendidikan Malaysia) and PKINK to discuss several matters related to academic development, student education,
operational effectiveness and continuity of college management. As a result, on 15 May 2004, PKINK with the
blessings of Tuan Guru, agreed to take over the management of the college by HALUAN through Akar Ikhlas Sdn.
Bhd .
• The 6 -acre KTD campus is located in Pengkalan Chepa, 13
kilometers from the city of Kota Bharu (the capital of
Kelantan) and 3 kilometers from Sultan Ismail Airport. It is
surrounded by a large number of educational institutions
such as Universiti Malaysia Kelantan, Asia Pacific Aviation
Institute, PERKIM Training Institute, Mara Science Junior
College, Maahad Sains Tok Guru, and also adjacent to the
Pengkalan Chepa industrial area. The strategic location
facilitates the college management to get support facilities
and is beneficial for the teaching and learning process.

HISTORY OF ESTABLISHMENT
• KTD's academic program began with the appointment as the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia
(UTM) Diploma Studies Cooperation Program Center for the state of Kelantan. It is the
result of an MoU signed on 6th March 1997 and the inaugural session of study at Diploma
level began in the semester of July 1997/1998. The expansion of academic programs
continued in collaboration with the Selangor Islamic University College (KUIS) in 2010 as
well as developing its own program.
• The main emphasis for all programs of study is the
enhancement and consolidation of admirable moral
values. The college management has set a
philosophy, vision, mission, core values, and a
structured implementation system to train and
educate students and staff towards achieving this
ideal goal. They are processed through meticulously
crafted approach to produce excellent, moral and
skilled graduates.

CHALLENGES
 Without a permanent campus, we are subjected to renewed rental
agreement signed every 4 years.
 We might have to relocate which demands a lengthy approval process
with the Ministry of Higher Education.

 Without a permanent campus, we are facing rental payment difficulties
estimated at USD8,000 to USD10,000 per month.

CHALLENGES


The number of students intake normally was at 300 – 400 until 2014, consisting of 80% from low to
extremely low income family. Total enrolment then, was at 1000 students from local and abroad.



Local students were supported by a loan from the government (MARA) covering tuition fee and
subsistence allowance. In addition, 40 international students were fully funded by HALUAN.



However, MARA loan was discontinued in 2014, and so the intake dropped to less than 100
students per semester. We realized that the students were only able to secure loan for tuition fee
from PTPTN, but not able to pay additional accommodation and food cost. Hence, they were not
able to proceed their studies.



Local HALUAN members have then raised fund to cover the students’ needs on a small scale and
were able to improve intake to 120 students. However more funding is needed to secure potential
students.

CHALLENGES
• KTD has always been committed in providing the best study experience, sponsorship, and
subsistence to our local and international students.
• Unfortunately this has incurred a lot of financial burden as much of the loan is not repaid.
• After MARA financial assistance was discontinued in 2014, the burden was too much to bear,
which affected our capabilities to assist future students.

HARAPAN

HOPE



Apply for University College status and in the future, University status. As a pre-requisite, a
permanent campus needs to be secured for the application.



Gain financial independence by no longer being subjected to renewed rental agreement signed
every 4 years.



Gain financial sustainability and support operational expenditures through small shop and hall
rentals which new building will include.

HARAPAN

HOPE

• For the permanent campus to materialize, progress is already in motion. The campaign has
started with a land application with the state government of Kelantan.
• The grant was approved as a token of close relationship KTD has had with the state.
• Estimation of grant approval is 2.4 acres with a market value of MYR 3.3mil, paid through
members’ contribution, with a consolation price at only MYR 600,000.

HOPE

HARAPAN
Phase 1

Phase 2

Phase 3

• MYR 10 million
• Preliminary work is in progress
• Completion is estimated in 2023

• MYR 30 million
• Progress to be in motion in
2024-2026

• MYR 20 million
• Progress to be in motion in
2027-2029

HOPE
 KTD aims to assist students from all walks of life including those from lower household
income to be able to study with a peace of mind and graduate successfully.
 Parents of lower income group who will no longer be burdened with the fees.
 Staff who will be able to conduct academic activities and operational duties effectively.
 KTD and HALUAN aim to develop more projects and offer the benefits to the society,
mainly in supporting programs for Malaysian students.

HARAPAN

HOPE

Accommodation – 300 x 80% x MYR500 = MYR120,000/semester x 2 = MYR240,000

Food – 300 x 80% x MYR8 x 30 days = MYR57,600 x 10 months = MYR576,000

It takes 6 semesters or 3 years to graduate.
