Ranked: Most Popular Student Clubs in UTM

Clubs give you a chance to become a part of something greater than just yourself during your study in UTM.

Searching for a suitable club can prove a tedious task. I have ranked as many active clubs out there based on surveys from our social media pages and cross checked it with data on UTM’s official website.

In this list the 3 main factors that are used to determine the ranking are:

Social Influence, Diversity and Membership Exclusiveness

Here is a list of the students favorite:

1) ROBOCON

Founded in 2002 by rock star lecturer Dr. Yeong and his colleagues Prof Sham and PM Dr Ridzuan , this esteemed robotics club is the oldest on the list and not to mention #1!

Robocon has a notorious reputation for being the toughest club in UTM because of its extreme workaholic nature. Members usually work in the lab almost everyday in the wee hours of night, some even sleeping over at the lab!

For just over a decade they have been winning national level championships and is undoubtedly the pride of UTM.
