KUCHING: Curtin University Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia) is offering a number of postgraduate degrees by coursework or research.
Curtin Malaysia offers different levels of postgraduate study and industry-aligned programmes under its Faculty of Engineering and Science, Faculty of Business and Faculty of Humanities in collaboration with Curtin Malaysia Graduate School and relevant faculties at its main campus in Perth, Western Australia.
Some of the postgraduate degrees only require a bachelor’s degree to apply, making it easy for postgraduate students to change careers if they choose.
If they have undertaken study or work experience that match part of their degrees, appropriate credit will be given so that they can reduce their course duration, and if they cannot commit to long degrees, some programmes offer graduate certificates or diplomas, allowing them to graduate within six months to a year.
The coursework degrees include Master of Engineering Management, which helps practising engineers advance their careers by acquiring engineering oriented management skills.
The Faculty of Engineering and Science also offers Master of Petroleum Engineering, a highly comprehensive course that provides students with a multi-disciplinary education in petroleum engineering covering a wide variety of subjects core to the petroleum engineering field.
The Faculty of Business, meanwhile, offers Master of International Business, which provides a highly practical perspective on demanding business issues such as how to lead in a multifaceted, international and multicultural global environment.
The faculty also offers Master of Commerce in Marketing, which is ranked second in Australia in the 2017 Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking.
For those keen to acquire a foundation in the core areas of policy analysis and management, the Faculty of Humanities offers Master of Policy Sciences, which helps students develop a framework which emphasises policy formulation, implementation and evaluation within the public and private sector.
The faculty also offers Master of Project Management, which provides the opportunity to gain the understanding, knowledge and skills necessary for performing the role of project manager.
In addition to the coursework degrees, Curtin Malaysia offers higher degree by research (HDR) programmes.
The degrees are offered at both Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) level, where the award of degrees is based on the successful completion of a major piece of research conducted individually and under expert supervision.
