There is always an interrelationship in between education and development. The effect of education and development is causing an upward shift along the spiral of development to achieve the target to be a developed country. In Peninsular Malaysia, the government hits an impressive rate of getting the schooling age children to at least receive their formal primary and secondary education at school. However, there is a high dropped out rate after the fifth year of secondary school education into the universities. A university needs to move in at least four dimensions, which consist of the pursuit of excellence, restructuring dynamics, language and learning, and Acts and action. Excellence should pervade not only in academic aspects but should also in sports, library, museum, cultural activities, publications and landscape. University paths the ways to achieve our national objectives, especially in development. It has worked along with the national philosophy, Rukun Tetangga. Admission to the universities is restructured to have a balance ethnicity among the students. The academic has stressed on the tolerance in between cultures while orientating our society towards a science and technology developed country. Language plays an important role in education. It is the key to open the door to learning and thinking. It also serves as the bridge that unites all the Malaysians. By law, students are not prohibited from taking part in any political demonstrations or involving in any political parties or trade union. Development in Malaysia is mainly concerned with the restructuring of the society to eradicate poverty. Education is directly concerned in development, especially in the tertiary and secondary level.

And excellence shall be the ultimate criterion for Malaysia to become a developed nation.
