Research Clusters

Our school is active in planning and acting more strategically in the development of our current and future research programmes. We continuously reassesses our current position, strengths, weaknesses and opportunities to add value to our research activities and enhance the School’s research profile to a higher level of international excellence.

We encourage our academic staff and research students to participate in collaborative and interdisciplinary research projects and working with leading universities around the world in order to develop ambitious and dynamic research culture among individuals in the School. The school provides physical and support infrastructure to encourage research and teaching activities, and recruit, nurture and reward high potential or calibre academic, research and support staff. Our research activities are mainly driven by the School’s core disciplines and research clusters. We aspire to achieve high citation index in research and become a leading research school in the Asia region.
