KBU in­tro­duces new pro­grammes

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

IN LINE with its mis­sion to pro­vide qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion, KBU In­ter­na­tional Col­lege moves a notch higher by in­tro­duc­ing in­dus­try-rel­e­vant pro­grammes to the stu­dents.

Since its in­cep­tion in 1990, KBU has pro­duced hun­dreds of First Class Hon­ours de­gree grad­u­ates through the col­lab­o­ra­tions with rep­utable part­ner uni­ver­si­ties in Bri­tain, namely Not­ting­ham Trent Univer­sity (NTU), Sh­effield Hal­lam Univer­sity (SHU) and Anglia Ruskin Univer­sity (ARU).

KBU grad­u­ates have suc­cess­fully gained em­ploy­ment in di­verse fields within a short pe­riod of time and in many in­stances, im­me­di­ately upon their grad­u­a­tion.

The col­lege cur­rently con­ducts nine fran­chised 3+0 pro­grammes with its part­ners ARU, NTU and SHU.

The pro­grammes are in de­sign, engineering, com­put­ing/ICT/soft­ware engineering, busi­ness man­age­ment, ac­count­ing and fi­nance.

The out­stand­ing achieve­ments by KBU grad­u­ates in the cor­po­rate en­vi­ron­ment sym­bol­ises the col­lege’s com­mit­ment in es­tab­lish­ing strong ties with well-known or­gan­i­sa­tions and pro­fes­sional bod­ies.

Some of the pro­grammes have been tai­lored to fit the cur­rent trend in the real world.

BA (Hons) Fur­ni­ture and Prod­uct De­sign

Recog­nis­ing that the coun­try’s fur­ni­ture in­dus­try is set to grow at an ex­po­nen­tial rate, KBU is of­fer­ing BA (Hons) Fur­ni­ture and Prod­uct De­sign in a bid to meet the needs of the de­sign pro­fes­sion in the 21st cen­tury.

Be­ing the only col­lege which of­fers Fur­ni­ture & Prod­uct De­sign course in Malaysia for the stu­dents, the pro­gramme pro­vides the stu­dents with a pro­fes­sional and cre­ative ap­proach to all as­pects of fur­ni­ture and prod­uct de­sign.

Teach­ing and learn­ing is pri­mar­ily stu­diobased with a num­ber of sup­port­ing lec­tures, sem­i­nars and tu­to­ri­als.

There will also be ac­cess to work­shops for model-mak­ing and com­puter suites for the de­vel­op­ment of com­puter-aided de­sign (CAD) skills.

All of this work con­trib­utes to the de­vel­op­ment of sub­ject knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing.

Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence

The Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence pro­gramme which is de­vel­oped by KBU with in­put from IMU pro­vides a plat­form for stu­dents to pur­sue a va­ri­ety of pro­grammes re­lated to health sciences at In­ter­na­tional Med­i­cal Univer­sity (IMU).

To cre­ate more path­ways for stu­dents af­ter the com­ple­tion of their pro­gramme, KBU has tied up with three more well-known uni­ver­si­ties such as Melaka Ma­ni­pal Med­i­cal Col­lege, Per­dana Univer­sity and Mahsa Univer­sity; other than IMU.

Stu­dents who are as­pir­ing to be med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als in the short­est time pos­si­ble can grab the op­por­tu­nity by en­rolling in the Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence pro­gramme where the cur­ricu­lum is en­tirely adapted from IMU.

Be­sides the new pro­grammes, KBU also of­fers schol­ar­ships to stu­dents who ex­celled in the Si­jil Pe­la­jaran Malaysia (SPM) and Si­jil Tinggi Pe­la­jaran Malaysia (STPM) ex­am­i­na­tions.

Schol­ar­ship and fee waivers are also of­fered to lead­ers and top of­fice bear­ers of school uni­formed bod­ies. Stu­dents who are ac­tive and have per­formed well in sports are also able to ap­ply for the Sports Schol­ar­ship. The new ad­di­tion to the schol­ar­ship list would be the KBU Prin­ci­pal Schol­ar­ship 2014 which is ded­i­cated to the cur­rent SM3 stu­dents who have ex­celled in the Uni­fied Ex­am­i­na­tion (UEC) ex­am­i­na­tion.

Stu­dents and par­ents are wel­come to visit the cam­pus on KBU’s Open Day Dec 21 and 22. Go early and stand a chance to en­joy spe­cial in­cen­tives.
