MIRI: The human element and the opportunity to use what have been learnt to serve others should be fundamental considerations by graduates in their careers and lives.

In this regard, Curtin University Malaysia Campus pro-chancellor Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan says no matter what their degrees are, the topics of their researches or theses, the graduates should identify relevance and motivation to contribute their skills and knowledge towards the advancement of the environment, enhancing health, addressing the inequalities in society, and improving the lives of the most vulnerable segment of the population.

“You have the means and the opportunity to make a difference,” he spoke at Curtin Malaysia graduation ceremony here yesterday, where 735 students from the university’s Faculty of Business, Faculty of Humanities, and Faculty of Engineering and Science received their certificates at.

On Curtin Malaysia, Dr Chan said the curriculum should equipped students with the discipline, knowledge and professional capabilities to make a difference in society.

He also regarded Curtin graduates as being ‘culturally competent, innovative, creative and entrepreneurial, globally-engaged and responsive’, as well as ‘being effective communicators with digital competence, and also being industry-connected and career-capable’.

“So you have taken the first step, you have strived and achieved an amazing goal; now you have an incredible gift – a world-class Curtin qualification that will be a major asset in your career and also (as) the platform from which you will leap and grow,” he added.
