Bandar Universiti Pagoh (Jawi: باندر اونيۏرسيتي ڤاڬوه; Chinese: 巴莪大学城) is a new township built around Pagoh Education Hub and is partly developed by Sime Darby Property in Pagoh, Muar District, Johor, Malaysia, Malaysia.

Pagoh educational hub[edit]

Pagoh higher education hub located in Pagoh University Town, which is the first and largest public higher education hub in Malaysia.

The development of the university town of Pagoh following the example of the Qatar Education City and the Science and Technology Park (Qatar Education City) was the spark of inspiration for Y.A.B. Tan Sri Dato’ Dr. Muhyiddin Muhammad Yassin[2] during his tenure as the 10th Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, expecting operations to begin in mid-2016.[3][4][5]

The development of HPTP began on 24 June 2011, after Cabinet Council approved the project to be implemented through PFI-BLMT (Private Fund Initiative). The Inauguration and Groundbreaking Ceremony [6] was officiated by Y.A.B. Tan Sri Dato’ Dr. Muhyiddin Muhammad Yassin, Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia and Minister of Education of Malaysia at Ladang Lanadron, Panchor, Muar, Johor on 15 September 2011.

The University Development Master Plan for the construction of this HPTP has been specially designed to support the objectives of the Public University/Polytechnic involved by taking into account the development and projections for the next 10 to 20 years.[7][8][9][10]

HPTP covers an area of over 200 hectares. There are four educational institutions, namely three public universities and a polytechnic.[11][12]

The diversity of core studies offered by the Public University/ Polytechnic at HPTP with the latest estimated number of students of 7,500 people has boosted the socioeconomics in the surrounding area.[13][14][15]
