Kulliyyah of Science

  • Description
  • Overview

    Kul­liyyah of Sci­ence (KoS) was founded in 2000 and was located at the Kul­liyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowl­edge build­ing before mov­ing to parts of the Kul­liyyah of Engi­neer­ing in INTER­NA­TIONAL ISLAMIC UNI­VER­SITY MALAYSIA (IIUM), Gom­bak Cam­pus. The Kul­liyyah is cur­rently headed by the Dean, Prof. Dr. Kamaruz­za­man Yunus.

    On 1st Dec 2006, KoS started its oper­a­tion at the new premises in IIUM Kuan­tan Cam­pus. About 250 kilo­me­tres away from Kuala Lumpur and 1,000 acres of a vir­tual gar­den nes­tled within a val­ley sur­rounded by thick for­est. Cur­rently, Kul­liyyah of Sci­ence has three depart­ments and one Insti­tute i.e. Depart­ment of Bio­med­ical Sci­ence, Depart­ment of Biotech­nol­ogy,Depart­ment of Com­pu­ta­tional and The­o­ret­i­cal Sci­ences (CTS) and Insti­tute of Oceanog­ra­phy and Mar­itime Stud­ies (INOCEM) .

    Vision and Mission

    The fac­ulty, cog­nizant of the need for it to reflect the fast-​changing nature of the sci­ences, aims to pro­duce grad­u­ates with deep the­o­ret­i­cal knowl­edge and highly devel­oped prac­ti­cal skills, whom employ­ers would be eager to recruit. We do this by com­bin­ing qual­ity teach­ing with high impact research. Our cur­ricu­lum employs a range of teach­ing method that not only ensure effi­cient and effec­tive teach­ing and learn­ing, but also fos­ter a capac­ity for inde­pen­dent learn­ing. Par­al­lel to this, we pro­vide an attrac­tive, sup­port­ive envi­ron­ment for the devel­op­ment of pro­fes­sional skills and we offer rel­e­vant and valu­able work place­ments to all stu­dents who wish to take advan­tage of them.

    We regard it is a major respon­si­bil­ity to pre­pare stu­dents for a wide vari­ety of career oppor­tu­ni­ties, who upon grad­u­a­tion will be of value to acad­e­mia, indus­try, the health sec­tor or any rel­e­vant dis­ci­pline in the wider community.
