Advanced Skills and Professional Development
This Faculty serves two main types of students; those seeking alternative pathways to educational advancement and industry personnel who want to enhance their professional expertise in a variety of areas. Alternative pathways include occupational degrees, foundation courses and government assisted programmes while other industry-based courses include customized offerings that are tailored to suit individual and organizational needs across sectors.
Shipping and Logistics
This faculty provides salient training in Logistics, which is an integral component of every organization but particularly so in the production, distribution, and trade. Effective logisticians can significantly impact the bottom line of organizations. As this awareness grows, so too will job opportunities in this field. Beyond the planning and forecasting, product assembly, storage, and management of the supply chain are international trade, security, and coordination of distribution channels. All these aspects (on land, on the sea and in the air) work together as a whole to support domestic and international businesses. The fast-paced industries of immigration, shipping, security and port management are global fields which offer tremendous employment opportunities. Practitioners in these areas are high in demand and low in supply. The undergraduate programmes in this Faculty are designed to prepare candidates to gain entry-level and middle-level employment in these sectors. They also seek to develop in candidates, the knowledge, skills, and flexibility to participate in the global marketplace. The Post Graduate programmes equip students with higher-order skills and abilities.
