Under this special program, RFTI brought its innovative approach that bridges academic disciplines, supports students’ professional and human capital development in various departments and agencies under MOSTI. Internationally, Professional Science Master’s Degree, a similar program to MPS has been gaining popularity among the STEM graduates. Accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency since 2017, MPS graduates are groomed to be capable of leading innovative and competitive organizations by leveraging advanced knowledge and skills in both science and management.
The graduation of the first UTM-MOSTI MPS cohort underlined RFTI’s commitment to provide its student with multidisciplinary and industry-focused education at highest quality through first class teaching, learning and research environment.
Our focus on engaging employers to co-design the program’s content and delivery is the key to the success of our graduates and a win-win outcome for all stakeholders”, said Assoc. Prof. Ts. Dr. Naz’ri Mahrin, the Dean of RFTI.
MPS graduates get the flexibility to bridge two academic disciplines and choose various related elective courses ranging from engineering business management, business intelligence analytics, occupational safety and health management, STI policy to many more, that best suit their organizational aspirations and needs.
“Class of 2022, it had been a wonderful pursuit of excellence and advancement of knowledge. Best wishes for a successful career ahead!”-Program Coordinator.
