The Malaysia University of Science and Technology (MUST) is a comprehensive university offering programmes at all levels, from Foundation Science to Diploma, Undergraduate (BSc and BBA), Masters and PhD. There are currently three schools: the School of Science and Engineering, the School of Business, and the School of Foundation and Pre-U Studies.
The University is also preparing to offer Undergraduate engineering and MBA programmes in late 2011 and will announce the intake dates once the approval process is complete.
MUST began as a post-graduate research university in 2000, assisted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Hence, its post-graduate research curriculum was structured to emulate MIT’s style of teaching and learning, with emphasis on meeting the demand of future industries and jobs. To deliver this education, MUST has built up a faculty consisting of graduates of leading universities in the world.
Today, MUST has expanded to offer Undergraduate and Foundation programmes in its School of Science and Engineering and Business School. Its postgraduate experience with the assistance of MIT sets the model for developing its Undergraduate and Foundation programmes. Teaching and learning continue to be interactive, and the content of courses are guided by practical concerns. The curriculum is industry-oriented to ensure employability of graduates.
Graduates of MUST today work in leading corporations across the world, from the Middle East to China, Singapore and Australia. Many also work in major corporations and government organisations in Malaysia or have started their own business. Others have gone on to pursue PhDs in Malaysian universities as well as universities in Canada, Australia, and else where.
Our international students have also attained good careers, largely returning to their home countries to hold good positions in government organisations and private companies, adding to the rich international alumni network that can help each new batch of graduates on international jobs.
MUST’s Foundation Science programme is supervised by its senior faculty to ensure quality teaching and good student performance. Subjects such as mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics and computer science are taught by faculty with Masters and PhDs. Students who did not have mastery over these subjects in secondary school were able to learn intensely under the guidance and teaching of the MUST faculty. Students experienced a pedagogy that make science interesting and comprehensible.
MUST welcomes Science and Arts students to come and experience its Foundation lectures to get a grasp of this pedagogy that has made so many students perform well in the basic sciences. A good foundation in science is necessary to prepare students for Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Engineering courses at a higher level. Arts students may also want to have a first-hand experience of MUST’s Business courses.
MUST’s undergraduate programmes are taught by highly experienced faculty members. The courses combine class lectures with practical laboratory work, field research, group projects, presentation and workshops. All these equipped students with a wide range of learning skills and instilled them with confidence and an enthusiasm for knowledge that set them apart from others.
Students are welcomed to visit MUST to experience its undergraduate programmes and interact with its faculty. Students may also get a chance to sit in and participate in its postgraduate programmes to get a sense of what postgraduate school is all about. These visits can be arranged by calling the Students Admission Office.
