Swinburne has been providing real life education and research programs for 104 years. The University has now also been doing that job at the Sarawak campus for 11 years. Swinburne Sarawak is one of eight elite universities that have been awarded selfaccrediting status by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency, giving full recognition of the University’s programs. The 2009 MQA Rating System for Malaysian Higher Education Institutions (SETARA ’09) also placed the University in its Tier 5: Excellent status category. Globally, Swinburne University of Technology has risen in the Shanghai Jiao Tong register of the world’s 500 top universities. The offer Swinburne can make you is that if you choose to study at our Sarawak campus you will become part of an extended, international, professional community and carry the recognition of that status with you throughout Malaysia, the region, and the rest of the world. As a Branch Campus University in Malaysia, Swinburne offers undifferentiated degrees at all campuses; the Australian and Malaysian campuses award the same testamur (parchment). Programs currently offered include Engineering, Commerce/Business, IT/ Computing, Science, Design and English.

At the same time we are developing undergraduate and postgraduate experiences, including research, development, and project work that links to the rich culture and economic promise of Sarawak and the region. This program/course guide has been designed to assist you in finding details about the programs available at the Sarawak branch campus that include Diploma, Foundation, Degree, Masters and Doctoral/PhD programs. We offer you a choice of either completing your program locally with us at the Sarawak campus or at one of the campuses in Melbourne, Australia. Since the programs and units of study are the same, if your results meet the requirements you are able to transfer to or from Australia/Malaysia at the end of any termsubject to obtaining the appropriate visa from the relevant government. The Branch Campus University in Sarawak is a partnership between Swinburne University of Technology in Australia and the State Government of Sarawak, operating through two foundations, Yayasan Sarawak (Sarawak Foundation) and the Sarawak Higher Education Foundation. Currently students from 51 countries as well as from West and East Malaysia study here. The programs offered at Swinburne are designed to prepare graduates to live and work in a world in which professionals need to be capable of very high levels of proficiency and to be able to act on both a local and an international level. A Swinburne education emphasises the development of the skills graduates need to gain employment with high salaries, or to go out and set up new ventures - new businesses - new companies, and consequently to end up employing others. Please ask our staff if you want further details. Come and join us. Professor Helmut Lueckenhausen Pro Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive

Your community Swinburne’s Sarawak campus is situated in Kuching. The capital city of the state of Sarawak, Kuching has been described as one of the most liveable and attractive cities in the region. Home to over 600,000 people, one thing most visitors notice about Kuching is its greenery and clean environment. This is not surprising as it is modelled as a garden city. Getting around is easy as most places of iinterest are located close to each other. Some are within walking distance of one another. Public transport is easily available. Taxis, only a phone call away, can be found throughout the city. There are many places for shopping, dining and entertainment. For instance, a large shopping mall is only 10 minutes’ walk from Swinburne Sarawak, and is a popular haunt among students. There is a good choice of coffee bars, restaurants and cafes serving local as well as Western and other Asian cuisines. Cineplexes show the latest Hollywood hits while lounge bars are common place. About an hour from the city are attractive beaches with hotels and resorts offering packages from five star to those that meet the needs of the budget traveller. A number of national parks are also within easy reach of the city, making day trips possible.

Exploring Malaysia Malaysia is a multicultural country of about 28 million people. With well-established infrastructure for banking, communication, transportation and education, it is one of the more developed countries in Southeast Asia. Well linked to the rest of the world, the country is geographically divided into Peninsular Malaysia, located on the Malay Peninsula, and Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo. Malaysia is a melting pot of colourful cultures and is made up of a good mix of Malays, Chinese, Indians and other ethnic and indigenous groups. While Malay is the national language, English is widely spoken. The culinary scene is varied and colourful as a result of the diverse cultures. You’ll find Asian and Western cafes and restaurants aplenty. Eating out is widely popular and affordable. As the weather is hot and humid most of the year relaxed, comfortable clothing is recommended. However from around November to March, the Monsoons bring much rain to the country and is commonly known as the ‘wet season’.

Matthew Hinds, Australia Bachelor of Engineering (Civil Engineering)/Bachelor of Commerce “I think it’s amazing how two countries can be relatively close to each other but be so different in terms of culture and general lifestyle. Kuching has a very relaxed lifestyle and its people helpful, and the food, great!”

Preparation for the real world Our focus is on producing work-ready graduates. We maintain close relationships with industry partners to ensure our programs are in line with the future needs of industry, and give students opportunities to work on ‘real-life’ scenarios facing business and the community.

The Swinburne Sarawak difference 10 units of study in a calendar year for undergraduate programs The Swinburne Sarawak academic calendar consists of two long terms of 12 contact weeks each and a short term of six contact weeks. You may choose to commence your study at any of the terms in February or September. Please note that some programs may not be offered at these terms.

Swinburne Sarawak’s approach to learning puts you at the heart of everything we do. Our programs give you the skills you need – not just the theory – so you’ll have first-hand knowledge of what’s needed when you start work. Our teaching staff uses a number of innovative methods to promote understanding of your chosen area of study. Modes of study You will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of modes of study depending on your chosen program, and whether you are studying foundation, diploma or an undergraduate degree. These may include lectures, workshops, tutorials, laboratory sessions, group work, cross-discipline projects, case studies, practical sessions, discussion groups and individual research projects.

Assessment methods

Majors

At Swinburne Sarawak, assessment takes various forms. You could be assessed through a combination of assignments, reports, examinations, practical, class presentations, journal keeping, class participation and group projects.

Most three-year degrees at Swinburne comprise 24 units of study. You undertake the majority of these units in your primary area of study, which becomes your major. Your major allows you to broaden your knowledge in a particular area. For example, if you undertake a Bachelor of Commerce, you can major in accounting and finance, human resource management, international business, marketing or management.

During your program, you’ll work to real-world expectations. All of our programs have work-based elements, which can include projects and work scenarios to ensure you are work ready. The skills you learn are directly relevant to performing tasks in the workplace.

Elective units The remaining units that make up your degree are called elective units, which you can use to explore related or non-related areas of interest. Depending on your program structure and timetable availability, you may be able to use these units to complete a double major, a major and a minor, or a major with two minors. Please note that some four-year degrees may not offer the same flexibility.

Minors A minor is a set of subjects (shorter than a major) studied throughout a degree. The number of subjects in a minor may vary between programs. Studying a minor will allow you to expand your career options by adding another area of expertise. You can also add depth to your qualification by studying units related to your major. For example, with a Bachelor of Commerce, you could major in management and undertake a minor in marketing, media or psychology.

Undergraduate degrees Swinburne degrees encourage independent learning and provide a supportive framework for you to research, analyse and solve problems in your chosen field of study. Flexible program structure Our flexible program structure allows you to add depth and breadth to your degree, by letting you choose from an extensive range of subjects from different disciplines.
