About Equator Academy of Art
Equator Academy of Art and Design started its operations in 1987 and has since grown to become the largest Art and Design College in the Northern region of Malaysia. Today, it has two campuses in the tropical island of Penang. Penang is ideal as an inspirational environment for students to develop their creativity with its rich cultural heritage.
Equator brings out the widest expression of its students' creative talents through its unique cross-disciplinary learning, research and practical training, anchored in an environment whereby theory and practice are integrated. This ensures graduates succeed in a continually changing and increasingly demanding market.
In order to remain current, facilities, resources and equipment are frequently reviewed and updated accordingly, with programmes that are relevant to society’s needs being offered. The academy also offers an environment of study excellence with qualified professional artists, designers and educators.
With international linkages well connected, EAA is poised to grow from strength to strength in the coming years. It is no wonder that EAA has matured and developed into the art and design specialist college that it is today, still the only and design college in the Northern Region of Malaysia.
