We produce graduates who can lead and contribute to their local and regional communities. They can be found in positions of importance all over the world.
Motivated and inspiring staff
Our staff encourage you to contribute ideas that have impact. Dr Simon Egerton, our Deputy Head of research for the School of IT, created a charity dedicated to exploring the use of science fiction as a means to motivate and direct research into new technologies. It’s innovative thinking like this that helped inspire final year Bachelor of Computer Science students, Poh Guan and Wei Juin. They’re creating a software program that helps identify manta rays in an effort to protect and conserve the species.
Research with impact
From discovering new drugs and herbal treatments, derived from Malaysia’s rich natural biodiversity, to studying indicators to measure business leaders’ perception of the local business environment, our research is diverse and multidisciplinary.
This multidisciplinary approach has led to research that has been published in high-impact international journals and books, and used by policymakers and industry.
Our campus is home to some unique research facilities, such as the South East Asian Community Observatory , a cross-disciplinary and multi-institutional collaboration, now piloting a community health study in south Malaysia, and the Brain Research Institute of Monash Sunway, which delves deep into neurological issues.
Our work attracts the attention of leading research universities and industry. Consequently, it attracts substantial funding and generates valuable international linkages. As our collaborations grow, we are helping to position Malaysia as a regional centre for educational and research excellence.
