Foreword

The founder, Allayarham Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Setia Jaya Pengiran Haji Abdul Momin bin Pengiran Othman, observed that there were many young people "MELEPAK" by the shops around Setia Kenangan Complex. He approached them and asked why were they not in schools. Their Replies:

"We have failed, repeated one year and failed. There are no more opportunities to continue."

"We cannot get into any public schools to continue because we do not have enough grades."

"we have the grades but cannot get into any public schools as the quota is limited."

Such were the dilemmas of our young people, the founder being once an educator himself divided. He converted the "block tengah" of his Setia Kenangan Complex to become an educational instituition to help and give these young people the opportunity that they needed. Thus, in January 9, 2002, he formed and registered a company named Kolej IGS SDN BHD.

The Board of Directors was then formed and chaired by Allahyarham Yang Amat Mulia himself. The appointed members were Datin Paduka Hajah Misli bte Haji Awang, Pg (DR) Hajah Fatimah binti PSJ Pg Haji Abdul Momin, Pg Hj Mohd Alimin bin PSJ Pg Haji Abdul Momin and the late Pg Hj Mohd Shahrimin bin PSJ Pg Hj Abdul Momin. The Board seeked approval from the Government of His Majesty for Kolej IGS as center of Educational Institution. The groundwork was formulated.

Originally, the Board intended to run undergraduate courses. But due to some technical problems and the profiles of the students, it was then decided to run certificate and diploma courses. These was also a clear demand for IT and Business programmes with the advent of Information era.


Thus, our JOURNEY BEGAN.
