The International College of Automotive (ICAM) is owned by HICOM University College Sdn Bhd (HUCSB), a wholly-owned subsidiary of DRB-HICOM Berhad. ICAM was officially established on the 2nd of April 2010, upon receiving approval from The Ministry of Higher Education.
As the largest fully integrated automotive corporation in the country, DRB-HICOM is involved in every link of the automotive supply chain from the manufacture of automotive components and assembly to distribution, after-sales support and vehicle inspection.
The companies under the Group’s automotive business have linked up with international automotive players such as Audi, Honda, Isuzu, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen. In addition, it has established partnerships with two of Malaysia’s main players in the automotive industry, Proton and Perodua.
ICAM serves two major roles, acting as a private college that produces a cadre of skilled professionals to join the workforce for the automotive sector, and also serving as an institution that enables the Group’s automotive workers to continuously upgrade their skills and knowledge. ICAM’s goal is to complement the automotive industry through the sustainable development of human capital.
By providing a continuous flow of trained and skilled workers to the Group’s automotive businesses, ICAM plays an active role in the Group’s vision of realising the nation’s aspiration of creating a knowledgeable and skilful workforce, as prescribed in the New Economic Model.
This vision includes the goal of making Pekan, the home of ICAM and the Group’s integrated automotive complex, a vibrant and self-sustaining regional automotive centre, which will house state-of-the-art technology but more importantly a highly skilled & knowledgeable workforce.
