About Malaysia University of Science and Technology (MUST)
The Malaysia University of Science and Technology (MUST) is a comprehensive university offering programmes at all levels, from Foundation Science to Diploma, Undergraduate (BSc and BBA), Masters and PhD. There are currently three schools: the School of Science and Engineering, the School of Business, and the School of Foundation and Pre-U Studies.
MUST began as a post-graduate research university in 2000, assisted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Hence, its post-graduate research curriculum was structured to emulate MIT’s style of teaching and learning, with emphasis on meeting the demand of future industries and jobs. To deliver this education, MUST has built up a faculty consisting of graduates of leading universities in the world.
Today, MUST has expanded to offer Undergraduate and Foundation programmes in its School of Science and Engineering and Business School. Its postgraduate experience with the assistance of MIT sets the model for developing its Undergraduate and Foundation programmes. Teaching and learning continue to be interactive, and the content of courses are guided by practical concerns. The curriculum is industry-oriented to ensure employability of graduates.
Graduates of MUST today work in leading corporations across the world, from the Middle East to China, Singapore and Australia. Many also work in major corporations and government organisations in Malaysia or have started their own business. Others have gone on to pursue PhDs in Malaysian universities as well as universities in Canada, Australia, and else where. Our international students have also attained good careers, largely returning to their home countries to hold good positions in government organisations and private companies, adding to the rich international alumni network that can help each new batch of graduates on international jobs.
