RESEARCH AND POSTGRADUATE CENTRE

At UniKL, research and development is managed by The Centre for Research and Postgraduate Studies (CRPGS). CRPGS was established in 2003 to facilitate research activities which include exploration for research funds, research awareness training and development of research policy. Our university has a unique profile of international research in several top rated areas.

The main goal of the programmes is to train graduates to be global enterprising researchers who are knowledgeable, skilled and enterprise-oriented. The masterís and PhD programmes are based on full or part-time research study and will cover a wide range of technology specialising in engineering technology.

The registration, student records, examinations, fees, etc. of postgraduate students are managed by the CRPGS. Students undertaking a masterís / PhD (by research) are required to register and complete two compulsory university modules, i.e. Research Methodology and Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Concurrently, the students have to work closely with their respective supervisors to produce a relevant research topic. Within 6 months the proposal will be examined by an appointed examination panel to validate if the contents meet the standards of the pursued level of study. The additional purpose of the examination is to ensure the research topics are in line with the universityís research focus area and contain potential commercial outcomes.
