INOCEM is expected to become a center of excellence in IIUM specializing in research, development and commercialization of ocean and coastal resources with particularly emphasis in marine biotechnology and oceanography.

The Institute has emerged as a venue pursuing excellence in demand-driven education, research and synthesis and dissemination of knowledge across a wide range of these subjects in regional, national and international contexts. INOCEM provide vibrant learning environment that is so conducive to scholarly achievements.

The establishment of this institute leads to the training and creating pool of experts who are well-versed in sustainability.  Comprehensive sustainability management demands the development of science and applications towards sustainable development.  Cooperation in research and joint facilitation of programmes were prominent in INOCEM. 

The seafront view located at the Cherok Paloh beach, this Institute had well equipped hatchery for aquaculture and plankton studies and laboratories, administration office, student cabins and also researcher’s lounge to preform prayers and relaxation. The Institute is waiting for another development phase to complete which the Institute will developed with more laboratories, hatcheries, Marine Aquarium and Museum, Mangrove Park, lecture room and mini library.
