Message from the Dean
Warmest greetings from the School of Graduate Studies, College of Engineering, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Malaysia.
As the Dean of Academic and Internationalization at the College of Engineering, I am sharing my pleasure and pride of the graduate programs at the College of Engineering, UiTM. School of Graduate Studies under College of Engineering has just been established since 29th March 2021, a result from the restructuring of the four major engineering faculties (Chemical Engineering; Civil Engineering; Electrical Engineering; and Mechanical Engineering). This is to spearhead the mission of the college towards a world-class research and innovation.
School of Graduate Studies is currently running 17 postgraduate programs, with 13 master and 4 doctoral programs to provide students with education and research opportunities encompassing both breadth and depth of engineering knowledge. Amongst the programs, 8 are coursework, 1 mixed-mode and 8 research-based programs. The current programs at School of Graduate Studies have been developed to enhance the quality and quantity of graduates, particularly in the field of engineering and other related fields, through constant promotion of knowledge advancements via academic study and research culture. The School of Graduate Studies is also actively seeking to develop new programs of multi- and inter-disciplinary nature that accentuates the spirit of College of Engineering. We look forward in developing inclusive graduate programs to cater for students with various needs, demands as well as from different walks of life by conceiving micro-credential courses, postgraduate certificates and postgraduate diploma programs, apart from the common master and doctoral programs.
We believe that our current and future programs, which are strongly based on the current and future needs of the industry would equip our students with the necessary skillsets that enhance the graduates’ employability, both at the local and international market. Our expanding collaborations with internationally renowned universities around the world create opportunities in enriching the choice of programs offered through joint, dual and double degree programs. Currently, School of Graduate Studies has international students enrolled from countries such as China, Indonesia, Germany, India, Nigeria, Iraq, Iran, Bangladesh, United Kingdom, Afghanistan and Yemen. These notions are set to drive Universiti Teknologi MARA towards achieving the strategic goal of ‘Globally Renowned University’ based on academic scholarship and excellence, subsequently producing highly competitive, global as well as ethical graduates. We are continuously interested in attracting highly-qualified and self-motivated students from around the world.
Finally, I would like to thank you for visiting our webpage and hopefully you will see yourself as a graduate student of College of Engineering, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia.
