From theDEAN's Desk


As the third decade of the Millennium approaches, the realities placed upon the social strata is ever evolving. Much is related to Technology whereby a seemingly new dawn of Disruption is upon us. From Autonomous vehicles, Deep Machine Learning, an Industrial Revolution of a Fourth kind until an emergence of a Gig Economy seem to be prevalent at all levels of society.

These are all of which the present education of Art & Design has to take on board. Indeed it would seem to be daunting yet there may just be that proverbial silver lining among the clouds.

The Faculty of Art & Design aspires to shape the future and improve the world through creativity & innovation.

We happily plan a collision of technology, the arts and design to bring about social betterment to the world. From robust research-based Creative output to a Fortune 500 company to provision of water pumps for impoverished remote villages, the practice of Art & Design is now headed towards social betterment at all levels.

Our intense collaborative efforts with the Creative Industry be it from new product development until research in conservation of a diminishing craft bears witness for all. The dissemination of this new found knowledge is also placed on various global portals such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Partnership Platform.

Our students, faculty and staff members take pride in exclusively producing high value design to new discoveries sparked by ingenuity and creativity.

Such is the strength of the faculty’s practice which has seen it through many a trying time. We encourage a research environment which asks questions that no one else has thought to ask. A renegade culture where going ‘against the grain’ would yield ground-breaking discoveries which in turn will greatly contribute to the nation’s aspiration of the future.

The global awareness on an impactful nurturing of our planet calls for all fields in academia to get onboard. This Faculty is committed in all aspects to be a major contributor to this global effort.

This goes beyond the itinerant assumption of attempting to ‘catch up’ with development and more of being at the forefront of it all.

Do join us on this exciting journey into the future of all things Art & Design; and be part of the new creative community which is the very fabric of this millennial society.

Prof. Dr. Hj. Ruslan Abdul Rahim
