Nour­ish­ing a bet­ter life­style

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

DE­VEL­OP­MENT in sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy has led to the cre­ation of many new things to ben­e­fit mankind. It also creates an al­ter­na­tive to the road of new dis­cov­er­ies, util­is­ing ex­ist­ing know how and knowl­edge. On such field which is now in the fore­front is nutri­tion.

Nutri­tion is a cru­cial as­pect of over­all health that em­pha­sises con­sum­ing the right quan­tity of qual­ity food at the right time. With the in­creas­ing con­cerns over health and well­ness, the need for a qual­i­fied nu­tri­tion­ist have seen an in­crease.

Among the in­dus­tries in­volved are well­ness in­dus­tries and com­pany’s deal­ing with health and well­ness prod­ucts.

The Man­age­ment and Sci­ence Univer­sity ( MSU) through the Fac­ulty of Health and Life Sci­ences ( FHLS) com­ple­ments the needs of highly skills and ex­perts hu­man cap­i­tal in the nutri­tion field. The course is a three- year pro­gramme open to those who have passed STPM, ma­tric­u­la­tion, diploma or other qual­i­fi­ca­tions recog­nised by the MSU Se­nate.

Stu­dents pur­su­ing the pro­gramme will be ex­posed to both of nutri­tion and di­etet­ics ar­eas, as well as to the state- of- the- art tech­nolo­gies used in the fields of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and coun­selling. As such, grad­u­ates of the pro­gramme are ex­pected to be com­pe­tent to han­dle not only the com­mon nu­tri­tional prob­lems but also to ad­vise on com­plex strate­gic is­sues and de­ci­sion- mak­ing process in the ar­eas of com­mu­nity nutri­tion.

Apart from the nutri­tion pro­gramme, FHLS also of­fers bach­e­lor and diploma pro­grammes in var­i­ous fields.

Th­ese in­clude Biomed­i­cal Sci­ence, Food Ser­vice Tech­nol­ogy, Op­tom­e­try, Bioin­for­mat­ics, Med­i­cal Sci­ences and Foren­sic Sci­ence.

As one of Malaysia’s top univer­sity, MSU of­fers pri­or­ity to qual­ity education and the im­por­tance of cre­ative teach­ing method­olo­gies to­wards pro­duc­ing qual­ity grad­u­ates.

Be­sides in­cor­po­rat­ing in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure in the stu­dents learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, ex­ten­sive in­dus­trial train­ing com­po­nents and per­sonal en­rich­ment com­pe­tency are also blended into the pro­gramme of study to en­sure the grad­u­ates em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

MSU is com­mit­ted to en­sure the best for its stu­dents.

A com­pre­hen­sive range of vis­it­ing pro­fes­sors who con­ducts reg­u­lar se­mes­ter vis­its pro­vides valu­able in­puts to stu­dents. Fur­ther­more, var­i­ous skills en­hance­ment pro­grammed aimed at im­prov­ing com­pet­i­tive­ness are of­fered to stu­dents.

Un­til now, MSU grad­u­ates re­main the pop­u­lar choice among em­ploy­ers.

A grad­u­ate tracer study con­ducted by the Malaysian Min­istry of Higher Education shows a 98% em­ploy­a­bil­ity rate of MSU’s grad­u­ates en­ter­ing the work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

This rate is the high­est among all higher learn­ing in­sti­tu­tions in Malaysia.

The MSU’s In­ter­na­tional Mo­bil­ity Pro­grammes are ini­tia­tives of the univer­sity to­wards em­pow­er­ing stu­dents through in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure ac­tiv­i­ties.

This ex­po­sure serves to com­plete the stu­dents’ de­vel­op­ment into com­pe­tent and em­ploy­able grad­u­ates.
