The department brings in a high level of interaction, motivation and engagement with the society. The professorship views continuous improvement and life-long learning as integral to the development of its pedagogy, courses and programs. We envisage module and course responsibilities to not only undertake the usual teaching, coordination and examination tasks, but also to integrate practice (companies) into the courses. Some of the main pedagogical principles that are actively employed in the teaching:

  • Research-based teaching
  • Peer-review in the classroom
  • Blended learning and the flipped classroom
  • International teaching materials and pedagogy
  • Boundary spanning with practice
  • High student learning outcomes based on regular feedback and evaluation
