Background of Centre for Entreprise and Technopreneurship Development (CREATE)
Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) undertook the restructuring and reorganization of the University through its Administrative Circular No. 29/2014 effective October 16, 2014. Through the restructuring and organization, the Centre for Entreprise and Technopreneurship Development (CREATE) was established and placed under the administration of the Assistant Vice Chancellor (Industry and Community Network) PNC-JIM. However, effective December 01, 2015, the Centre for Entreprise and Technopreneurship Development (CREATE) has been upgraded as a Responsibility Center (PTj) at UTeM. PPK was created specifically for students at this university in realizing their dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Its main focus is to guide and produce entrepreneurs in various fields such as engineering, computing, management and so on. This is in line with the high demand of the market for a wide range of innovative products especially high-tech goods.
In 2017, PPK and TEAM USAHAWAN UTeM undergo a rebranding thus change into Create UTeM and Create Buddies respectively.
