The latest trend of technologies has shifted the lifestyle of the world’s population to digital natives, hyper-connectivity and urbanisation. With the rise of robot applications in which cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of things (IoT) and big data, new forms of technology and, subsequently communication and the production of things are growing exponentially.
How does this shift in lifestyle relate to the courses that students choose in higher education, which in turn would affect their careers in the future? Industries are constantly changing production and management into digital communication and produced at an advanced human-machine interface at a very high speed tremendously. Advancement of offices and houses in terms of building technologies and the environment, with the application of renewable energy, as well as building materials used in construction, should be considered. Things have changed tremendously with the rise of machine technology. Thus, this demands new curricula as well as skilled and knowledgeable engineers and technicians across all the discipline of works and courses.
Research and survey outcomes prove that the nature of work in engineering has been highly sought after by the industry, is currently still very much in demand and will be so in the future. The engineering profession has been an elitist (best-trained group in society) since the birth of technology hundreds of years ago.
Situated in Sibu, the University College of Technology Sarawak (UCTS) is a Sarawak state-owned university that provides relevant courses in demand, ranging from Engineering and Technology to Computing and Media, and Business and Management. Other courses offered by UCTS also include degree programmes in Food Technology and Wood Technology.
School leavers that have achieved excellent SPM results with at least five (5) credits or obtained a UEC qualification may apply for a one-year foundation study in science and art leading to a university degree. A year of education in the Foundation of Science or Foundation of Arts at UCTS will open up various opportunities to courses relevant to industries currently in demand. The endurance of future careers within the ever-changing sectors in the market depends on the fellow students themselves, in choosing the right field of study to follow at the university, and students certainly have the freedom to select aptly at UCTS.
The general requirements upon enrolling within; the School of Engineering and Technology, School of Computing & Creative Media, School of Business and Management, School of Built Environment (which comprises Architecture and Quantity Surveying courses) include either a Foundation certificate, Diploma or STPM, or any other equivalent qualification that deem fit to the specific requirements of the programmes that may be considered. The MOA accredits all UCTS undergraduate degree programmes.
UCTS also has unique entry requirements for students who possess vast experience within their fields of work as well as those who are planning to further their studies and upgrade their social status by obtaining a degree. In this case, students may apply to UCTS through Accreditation of Prior Experience and Learning (APEL). APEL is a systematic process that involves the identification, documentation and assessment of prior experiential learning to determine the extent to which an individual has achieved the desired learning outcomes to gain access to a course of study and award of credits. This approach provides the opportunity for individuals with ample working experience but who lack the formal academic qualifications to pursue their studies in Higher Education Institutions (HEI). Thus, according to the MQA, knowledge obtained through formal education and working experience will both be assessed in APEL assessments.
