Launching of MAI Resource Centre

The Malaysia Automotive Institute Resource Centre was officially launched yesterday. The building is located at Bukit Lucky Industrial Park was officially launched by the Minister of International Trade and Industry Dato 'Sri Mustapa Mohamed, accompanied by MAI’s CEO Dato' Madani Sahari.

The Resource Centre was created in parallel with all of the various initiatives in the National Automotive Policy 2014 such as the Human Capital Development, Supply Chain Development, and remanufacturing in the Malaysian automotive industry.

The Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI) forecasts 27,000 new jobs will be created in the manufacturing sector of the automotive industry for the year 2017. In addition, MAI also forecasts 25,000 new jobs will be created in the aftermarket sector of the automotive industry.

To ensure that the expected skills and knowledge of these jobs are met, MAI provides capacity building programmes across all levels from school leavers to undergraduates whom, upon completion of these programmes, will be offered employment. These programmes include:-

  1. Industry-Led Professional Certificate (IPC) – a program for SPM leavers to produce skilled workers and technicians through specific modules and on-the-job training, for a duration of 6 months
  2. Automotive Industry Certification Engineering (AICE) – a programme for fresh graduates in STEM degrees to jump start their careers in the industry through a syllabus that tailors them to be immediately employable in the automotive industry, for a duration of 8 months
  3. MAI Graduate Apprenticeship – a programme for undergraduate students of STEM degrees which exposes them to the automotive industry from the 1st year of study until their graduation.


MAI also conducts capacity building programmes for the current employees in the automotive industry. Participating companies that send their employees to these programmes record an average increase in productivity by 24%. These programmes include:-

  1. Digital Engineering and Prototyping (DEP) – a programme for current engineers to enhance their design and engineering capabilities, for a duration of 3 months
  2. Lean Production System (LPS) – a program for all levels of employment to enhance the productivity of their manufacturing operations, for a duration of 9 months
  3. Customised programmes – a programme for all levels of employment to enhance specific areas of a company, for a duration of 3 months.


In order to enhance further the above capacity building programmes, MAI in partnership with Perodua, Proton and vendors Suria Component SDN. BHD., SIPRO Plastics SDN. BHD. and PHN Industry SDN. BHD. have established the MAI Resource Centre located in Bukit Beruntung. The MAI Resource Centre lies on the site of an old factory, but has been transformed into a training centre that houses industrial grade equipment including a hybrid vehicle trainer, toolings, and assembly jigs.

The MAI Resource centre is also a technology commercialization centre to undertake technology transfer, validation and adoption of automation practices. The electric bus homologation, robotic programming and 3D printing capabilities are some of the technologies commercialization activities being undertaken at the MAI Resource Centre.
