Centres

Many of the most significant developments in contemporary research in virtually all disciplines involve issues that cross disciplinary lines between the social and the natural sciences. Two centres are formed which is known as CCPE & CIDS. They carry various programs including independent and profesional/executive programs. An Interdisciplinary Centre will foster intellectual exchange between natural and social scientists in a broad range of fields and humanities scholars in fields such as philosophy, art, language, education, culture, religion, anthropology and literature. CCPE offers varied disciplines of knowledge which serve the public good through the discovery and mobilization of knowledge, engagement with industries, local, national, and international communities.

Centre for interdisciplinary studies (CIDS)
Many of the most significant developments in contemporary research in virtually all disciplines involve issues that cross disciplinary lines between the social and the natural sciences. An Interdisciplinary Centre will foster intellectual exchange between natural and social scientists in a broad range of fields and humanities scholars in fields such as philosophy, art, language, education, culture, religion, anthropology and literature. It will situate itself apart by devoting its engagement of culture, knowledge and society in the face of the demands of IR4.0. CIDS encourages reflection on how the study of interdisciplinary studies can contribute to overcome the fragmentation of the contemporary system of knowledge, characterized by a growing gap between the “humanities” and the “sciences”. CIDS is geared on creativity and innovation in the knowledge enterprise to meet the present social demands and human needs. Hence, at the forefront is the CIDS’s practical and pragmatic approach to the following educational thrusts: 1.Early childhood education. 2.Design Thinking Modules 3.Mandarin as medium of communication in the era of IR4.0
