FOUNDATION IN SCIENCE (FIS)

KPT/JPS(R/010/3/0085)(A7920)06/17
INTAKE : MARCH
 
Engineered for facing bigger and tougher challenges in life, our School of Engineering offers an immersive education that puts students’ knowledge and skills to test while being part of the prestigious CDIOTM Initiative pioneered by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

During this one-year foundation programme, students are exposed to a dynamic environment where they are challenged to put their skills and knowledge to test through hands-on experiments. Students are encouraged to develop strong cognitive functions, soft skills and analytical capabilities in order to be confident independent learners who are able to cope with our intensive Engineering degree.
 
We understand that it is important for both educators and students to keep pace with advancements made in the scientific world. At Taylor’s University, students of all levels can attend talks and workshops led by local and international academicians as well as industry experts.
