Malaysia University of Science and Technology

In 1995, the then Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad and a delegation  from Malaysia made a working visit to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  and endorsed the establishment of a university modelled after MIT.

An agreement was signed in January 1997 to establish the Malaysia University of Science and Technology (MUST). In its formative years,  MUST was fully assisted and supported by MIT, a world-renowned university noted for its education and research in advanced science and technology.

MUST emulates MIT’s method of teaching and learning which encourages creativity,  analytical thinking, problem-solving, innovation and team-building. These are qualities that have been proven to be successful in producing entrepreneurial leadership in technology and business.

MUST also nurtures a research-driven culture in all fields of expertise to ensure depth of understanding and confidence in facing practical problems.

The MIT model has been the impetus of the MUST culture that is vibrant, innovative and purposive to our local environment. Located at the heart of Kota Damansara,  Malaysia University of Science and Technology embarks on its journey to become the favourable university for postgraduate studies.

The University held colloquium every year for postgraduate students so they will have better exposure as an academician. A part from that, the students will also be exposed to webinars, discussion on forums and blogs.

The students also obtain new opportunities and career paths through research project and dissertation and industry based projects guided by field experts.

Why Study PhD at MUST?

World Class Faculty
Our faculty includes international academics at the forefront of their field as well as experienced industry professionals.

Flipped Classroom
Blending learning inside and outside the classroom Flipped learning reverses the traditional classroom approach to teaching and learning. It moves direct instruction into the learner’s own space. The classroom becomes a space for dynamic, interactive learning where the teacher guides and coaches students to apply concepts they have learned online.

Event Based Learning
Event-based learning runs over a few hours or days and creates a memorable sense of occasion. The time-bounded nature of an event encourages people to learn together, its local setting supports face to face encounters between amateurs and experts, and the scale of an event can provide access to resources that would otherwise prove inaccessible.

Technology-Enhanced Event-Based Learning
Technology-enhanced event-based learning offers opportunities for participation, collaboration and distributed expertise. These events not only have the potential to engage millions of people in memorable learning experiences, but can also make significant additions to the body of knowledge available to us as a society.
