UCSI House of Talents, also known as UCSI HOT.
Addressing it as a club is inaccurate, UCSI HOT is actually a programme directly under UCSI Student Affairs & Alumni (SAA). The motto is “Igniting the Passion Within” which emphasizes on their main aim which is seeking to reveal the hidden talents of UCSI University students. UCSI HOT is established to gather and enhance the various talented students in UCSI University.
Under the roof of House of Talents, members are categorized into two parts:
Masterminds - generally known as committees who holds fun and exciting events, workshops, training and meetups in purpose of to enhance talents and widen exposure of the talents. While in the same time, students can fully utilize skills and talents such as publicity, event planning, sponsorship dealing, and so on.
Talents - students in UCSI University who have four key talents: performing arts, spoken, visual and written. What they do is to perform and showcase talents at various events or projects.

I was once part of UCSI House of Talents under Masterminds before I finished my studies. In fact, I was also one of the founding members of this programme. One year of building up this “house” brick by brick was worth it. I really learnt a lot and got to meet many new friends there.
