Research activities in IIUM are coordinated by Research Center, which was established in 1991 with an objective to promote research activities within the University, and to disseminate research findings through publications, consulting services, training programmes, seminars and other electronic and print media.
There are several research grants and fundings provided by the University and Government in order to promote the research culture in the university
and in the country. For further details please refer to the Research Center
As part of the Kulliyyah's Strategic Plan (2003-2010), KICT promotes research culture among its members. Our researchers are aiming for larger-scale research grants and trying to seek collaborations with other Kulliyyahs and institutions, journal and book publications, seminars as well as active involvement of postgraduate students.
KICT has established 8 research groups with the major objective to promote research activities at the Kulliyyah. The research groups are:
* Information Systems, Internet and Organizations (ISIO)
* Digital Libraries
* Knowledge Management and Information Retrieval
* Information Technology for Development and E-government
* Network and Security
* ICT and Islam
* Behavioral Studies in Libraries
