The Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU) is a private university in Malaysia. It was formed in 1993 as the Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology (APIIT) and was renamed in 2004 after being granted University College status to Asia Pacific University College of Technology and Innovation (UCTI).[2] It has produced more than 20,000 graduates[1] under APIIT with association of Staffordshire University,[3]

APU provides undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in the areas of information technology, media, business and engineering. APU has opened overseas branches in India,[4] Sri Lanka[5] and Pakistan,[6] although these branches are still under APIIT branding. The university and its students have received awards, such as the NAPEI Education Excellence Award 2007 (University Category),[7] the Microsoft Imagine Cup Malaysia 2011,[8] the Prime Minister's Award for Industry Excellence 2011 by Najib Razak,[9] etc. Other research and development activities are carried out on the campus.[10]
