The mace’s concept and design are based on the dynamism of UTHM in various activities and learning processes reflecting the tawheed (oneness of God), in  which it depicts a technology centered university.

Design Rationale

Several traditional motif engraving designs with a dynamic combination of shapes on the mace, mirror the mission and vision of UTHM.  The unique, dynamic and innovative mace design comprises three main components, which are:
  • The head :  known as the torch
  • The body :  known as the chalice (batil)
  • The haft :  known as the column
The torch-shaped head symbolizes the university’s role as a purveyor of knowledge.  The engraved syahadah and the five-sided surfaces symbolize Islamization and the National Commandments (Rukunegara).  Each of the five-sided surfaces is engraved with the following motifs:
  • Crest of the Government of Malaysia
  • Crest of the state of Johor
  • Crest of Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia
  • The national flower
  • The Parliament
The body, known as the chalice symbolizes the fountain of knowledge.  It is surrounded  by carvings of floating clouds symbolizing tranquility in the acquisition of knowledge.  The university’s crest on each side portrays the  main function of the university in pursuing knowledge.

The column signifies authority which is the foundation of the development of  knowledge.  Stalks of paddy portray self-esteem.  The end part of the haft is supported by a time capsule portraying the transition of time, in line with the development of science and technology as the core and pillar of the university’s establishment.
