1980s…

The Malaysian Indian diaspora was going through a difficult phase. With a twenty-twenty vision, as the nation marched tirelessly towards the avowed goal of reaching the developed nation status, our community in particular was in danger of being left behind. Will the Indian community be able to keep pace with other dominant races, particularly in the field of education? It was strongly felt that if we were to enjoy a fair share of our national cake of wealth, imparting the right kind of education in our students was a must. However much we may echo the much-hyped notion that education forms the backbone of any civilization, it was also imperative to ask inwardly: how strong was our educational backbone then? Were our students empowered to pursue the courses of higher education of their choice? Were our youth economically liberated to go up the educational ladder without fear or favour? Was the number of graduates that we could churn out year after year proportionate to our population?

It was evident that the answers to these questions would have meant what sort of a legacy we might leave behind for posterity. Realising that education formed the basis for the all round development of any civilization, the Malaysian Indian Congress President, Dato Seri S. Samy Vellu rightly established the Maju Institute of Educational Development (MIED) as an educational arm of the MIC. The role of the Institute was to provide the necessary means to the deserving and needy Indian students, to get education.

1990s…

Our maiden effort to establish our own brand of technical colleges materialized with the establishment of Tafe College Seremban and Tafe College Kuala Lumpur. The aim was to make education available to every Indian youth, who shall inevitably shoulder the future of their community.

2000 and beyond…

After serving the students for more then 20 years, MIED reached the pinnacle of its achievements. Echoing the call to transform Malaysia into the education hub of the region, MIED, under the stewardship of its chairman YB Dato Seri S. Samy Vellu, embarked on a noble mission of establishing a state-of-the-art private University in the country. The Asian Institute of Medicine Science & Technology was born with much hope and expectation. The physical construction of the university is now fast nearing completion. Since the University requires being equipped with modern, state-of-art, infrastructural facilities, financial support for this venture should be continued to be solicited on a wider scale.A jewel in the crown of MIED, AIMST is all set to become the leading private University in the country specializing in Medical Sciences, and other faculties.
