About CGS

A place for learning, discovery, innovation, expression and discourse
In choosing a university to pursue a postgraduate programme, one has to weigh out many options. Will there be adequate facilities, state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment, modern library, computing facilities etc that can contribute and to promote the creation of a conducive research culture and learning experience? Will there be a sufficient pool of academic staff and researchers who are inspirational and committed to the pursuits and advancement of new knowledge and its applications? Will my experience as a UNIMAS postgraduate student be challenging, fulfilling and rewarding, socially and intellectually? Indeed in building the foundation for credibility and excellence of our postgraduate programmes, we have given our fullest attention to these critical criteria.
