Macao Polytechnic Institute (IPM) will be renamed Macao Polytechnic University (UPM) tomorrow, Secretary for Administration and Justice André Cheong Weng Chon has announced.

Speaking at Government Headquarters on Friday, Cheong said that the government has finished drafting amendments to a current administrative regulation (by-law) on the institute’s organisational structure and operation. The amendments will take effect on 1 March.

IPM President Im Sio Kei noted that following its development since its establishment in 1981, the way the institute is currently operating is “no different’ from a university, pointing out that in addition to bachelor’s programmes, the institute also runs master’s and doctoral programmes.

Im said that renaming the institute was merely to highlight its long-standing operation as a “university in reality”, The Macau Post Daily reported.
