Department of Human Resource Development

Organisations and industries require high efficiency and adaptability in facing the waves of change and complex global challenges.  Hence, the need for skilled, competent, proactive and responsive human resource is critical.

The HRD Department offers multi-disciplinary courses which focus on the development of human capital which prioritize on increasing capabilities of the mind and the development of positive behaviors for individuals, groups and organizations. This serves to assist students to acquire indepth knowledge, skills and abilities in order to optimize human resource productivity.

The department promises a difference in handling the 120-credit hours course offered.  The cognitive science aspect in its curriculum provides an advantage to the HRD programme as it brings into perspective the workings of the human mind, particularly in understanding how to work and manage human capital. It encompasses aspects like thinking, planning and decision making – all of which are crucial to a HR practitioner. Our HRD niche area covers training and development, organizational development, career development and HR practices.

The strength of the programme is on guiding students to analyse and synthesise different human behaviors, thinking styles and human interactions in an organisation.  In addition, students are exposed to real world working environment through industrial training/attachments, industrial visits and special sessions where notable HR practitioners are invited to meet and present contemporary work issues with students.

Graduates from the programme are eligible to work as HR managers/executives, personnel executives, training and development executives and related areas in management and development of human resource in the government or private sectors.
