We are witnessing rapid changes to the working world, and employers are looking for flexible graduates who are able to adapt to these changes. IUMW Communication & Technology programmes teach valuable skills like critical thinking, problem-solving, and new ways of approaching complex questions; as well as the practical experience and theoretical knowledge to thrive in industries where innovation and new technologies are driving the way we experience life.
The Centre of Foundation, Language and Malaysian Studies provides a sturdy base for personal growth and academic enrichment at IUMW. Our one-year Foundation programme, fully accredited by MQA, provides multi-disciplinary exposure to students before they pursue their undergraduate degrees. The Centre also manages our IELTS workshop and exam centre, as well as the MPU subjects at IUMW.
Arts and Science is an integrated Faculty encompassing the School of Communication & Technology and the School of Science & Psychology. It is a place where students learn to think critically, communicate, interpret and judge independently - skills that are highly sought after by employers globally. Our goal is to integrate practical experience and industry exposure with academic knowledge, so our graduates have every opportunity to become effective, compelling leaders in their fields.
