Mak­ing the right con­nec­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

AN en­rich­ing and re­ward­ing learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence awaits stu­dents of INTI’s Univer­sity of Wol­lon­gong (UOW) de­gree pro­grammes, be­ing af­fil­i­ated with a univer­sity that en­joys five-star sta­tus in Aus­tralia.

It is placed in the top 2% of world uni­ver­si­ties (QS World Univer­sity Rank­ings 2013/2014/ Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion World Univer­sity Rank­ings 2012/2013 Aca­demic Rank­ing of World Uni­ver­si­ties (ARWU) 2013), and listed among the best mod­ern uni­ver­si­ties in the world.

UOW is rated as a five-star per­former in Hob­son’s Good Uni­ver­si­ties Guide.

This year marks the 14th year in a row UOW has scored five stars in the “grad­u­ate out­comes” cat­e­gory, which in­cluded “Get­ting a Job, Pos­i­tive Grad­u­ate Out­comes and Grad­u­ate Start­ing Salary”.

Work­ing in part­ner­ship, UOW and INTI have ex­tended the best in ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion to stu­dents in Malaysia through de­gree pro­grammes in IT (ma­jor in eBusi­ness or Net­work De­sign & Man­age­ment); Com­puter Sci­ence (ma­jor in Soft­ware Engineering, Mo­bile Com­put­ing, Mul­ti­me­dia and Game De­vel­op­ment or Dig­i­tal Sys­tems Se­cu­rity); Com­merce (ma­jor in Fi­nance, Ac­count­ing, Man­age­ment, Eco­nom­ics, Mar­ket­ing, In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness or Pub­lic Re­la­tions); and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Me­dia Stud­ies (ma­jor in Mar­ket­ing Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Ad­ver­tis­ing).

Stu­dents of the INTI UOW pro- grammes are en­rolled as UOW stu­dents.

This gives them ac­cess to online re­sources avail­able at UOW.

The grad­u­a­tion cer­tifi­cate is con­ferred by UOW and bears the name Univer­sity of Wol­lon­gong.

As the cour­ses de­liv­ered at INTI are iden­ti­cal in con­tent to UOW in Aus­tralia, stu­dents can also choose to trans­fer at the end of any se­mes­ter to con­tinue their stud­ies at UOW in Wol­lon­gong.

Trans­fer op­tions avail­able are the 2+1, 1.5+1.5 and 1+2 ar­range­ments.

Stu­dents may also choose to spend a se­mes­ter at UOW in Aus­tralia with the study abroad op­tion avail­able.

Among the unique plat­forms for in­no­va­tive learn­ing and ca­reer de­vel­op­ment in the UOW pro­gramme is the an­nual UOW Techno­preneur Week, held in col­lab­o­ra­tion with INTI’s in­dus­try part­ners.

Each year, to pro­mote the en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit and mind­set, stu­dents take on the chal­lenge of putting to­gether a cre­ative event that will en­hance their soft skills and fur­ther pre­pare them for the real work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

As Techno­preneur Week is or­gan­ised by stu­dents for stu­dents, par­tic­i­pants are em­pow­ered via an ex­pe­ri­ence that boosts their level of ma­tu­rity and pre­pares them for a suc­cess­ful ca­reer in any field that they may em­bark on.

Many other ini­tia­tives are in place to help INTI stu­dents build up com­pe­ten­cies through in­no­va­tive learn­ing.

Stu­dents have un­der­taken 180 in­no­va­tive projects with 98 em­ploy­ers from var­i­ous in­dus­tries since 2011.

Real em­ployer projects rang­ing from “Ways of do­ing busi­ness and how to set up a com­pany in Myan­mar” to “De­vel­op­ment of a re­search book that iden­ti­fies the changes shap­ing Malaysia’s mar­ket­ing land­scape and con­sumer be­hav­iour trends” have been in­tro­duced in the class­room to help stu­dents de­velop prob­lem solv­ing, col­lab­o­ra­tion, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and crit­i­cal think­ing skills.
