Postgraduate Programme

DSC 0646

Research activities at the Faculty of Engineering comprises three major types namely fundamental/basic research, applied research and experimental development. The research activities in the faculty are classified into few research niche groups which allow research convergence and the optimization of research resources. At the faculty level, a cluster-based approach to research is encouraged. The faculty desires research to be inter-disciplinary in design and approach. Inter-faculty and inter-institutional research collaboration is encouraged since the sharing of expertise and techniques across disciplines and institutional boundaries shall eventually prove beneficial in adding value to research. It is preferred that each cluster-based research projects have postgraduate students (by research) attached to it. Working with principal researchers, the students derive their postgraduate theses from the research project. All research projects should have merit-based research scholarships and studentships for fieldwork to assist their postgraduate students financially throughout the duration of their studies.
