The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

First City Uni­ver­sity Col­lege (First City UC) is ex­pand­ing to achieve its vi­sion of pro­vid­ing qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and best teach­ing and learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment – with the aim of equip­ping grad­u­ates with rel­e­vant skills nec­es­sary to launch suc­cess­ful ca­reers upon grad­u­a­tion.

Tak­ing into ac­count the cur­rent chal­leng­ing eco­nomic land­scape, First City UC is of­fer­ing these at com­pet­i­tive and af­ford­able fees with­out any­one hav­ing to break the bank.

Over 27 years, the uni­ver­sity-col­lege has pro­duced grad­u­ates who ben­e­fited from the com­bi­na­tion of the spe­cially de­signed pro­grammes taught by ca­pa­ble and at­ten­tive teach­ing staff, col­lab­o­ra­tions with rep­utable for­eign uni­ver­si­ties and in­dus­try part­ners, am­ple teach­ing and learn­ing fa­cil­i­ties of­fered to­gether with whole­some stu­dent life ex­pe­ri­ence.

In keep­ing up with the lat­est in­dus­try trends and the ever chang­ing work­place de­mands, First City UC is an­nounc­ing the in­tro­duc­tion of 12 new pro­grammes to add to the ex­ist­ing ones of­fered in var­i­ous dis­ci­plines un­der three fac­ul­ties – Fac­ulty of Arts and So­cial Sciences, Fac­ulty of De­sign and Built En­vi­ron­ment and Fac­ulty of En­gi­neer­ing and Com­put­ing.

In de­vel­op­ing these new cour­ses, aca­demi­cians iden­tify po­ten­tial emerg­ing mar­kets and in­dus­try needs based on sur­veys, in­sights and con­sul­ta­tion with var­i­ous in­dus­try key play­ers and ex­perts.

Us­ing this in­for­ma­tion, they came up with spe­cially-de­signed pro­grammes filled with com­pre­hen­sive mod­ules to equip grad­u­ates with the nec­es­sary skills and knowl­edge re­quired in their fu­ture pro­fes­sions.

These pro­grammes are de­signed with the em­ploy­ers’ needs in mind and taught by aca­demics with years of ex­pe­ri­ence both in teach­ing and in­dus­try.

This en­sures stu­dents are able to se­cure jobs that are needed in the in­dus­try, while pro­vid­ing them with the upper hand to kick-start their ca­reers im­me­di­ately upon grad­u­a­tion.

• BA (Hons) Fur­ni­ture and Prod­uct De­sign
