SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY

Welcome to the Faculty of Science & Technology

Science and Technology are key drivers of socio-economic development. Products stemming from Science and Technology are transforming all sectors across the economy, affecting everyday lives that have access to these advancements.

Scientific knowledge is integral to develop new technologies every day and industrial problems and help society make informed choices. Not only are the basic sciences and the latest technological advancements part of the student’s curriculum; but they are also given an insight on ethics and regulatory laws that govern scientific and technological advancement, giving them a holistic and comprehensive education and making them responsible citizens of the world.

Scientific research brings about national and universal integration of all living things. We at the Faculty of Science and Technology are dedicated and committed to bringing the latest in science to the student community, ensuring active learning and teaching skills that can earn them recognition in their scientific careers.

The Faculty of Science and Technology (FST) comprises of five schools namely the School of Computing, School of Engineering, School of Biological Sciences, School of Mathematics and Basic Sciences and the School of Postgraduate Studies, Research and Internationalisation. The Faculty provides excellent teaching facilities, well-equipped laboratories and qualified, dedicated and a diverse academic staff. We collaborate with industry leaders as well as leading researchers and academics in universities worldwide. Apart from organisations in Malaysia, links have already been forged with experts in UK, India, China and Europe. The Faculty of Science aspires to be the top choice of students for value-added education that prepares graduates in confronting challenges of the future. Elements in the curriculum adopted by the Faculty train students in analytical and creative thinking, confident presentation skills as well as innovative problem-solving techniques that ensures FST graduates remain relevant and always sought-after by employers.
