Empowering creative learning hubs


The innovative layout of the labs promotes a sense of unity and connectivity as students and educators engage in lively discussions, brainstorming sessions, and hands-on activities.

IN the ever-evolving landscape of creative industries, innovation often hinges on the environment in which artists and designers are nurtured.

Recognising this fundamental truth, the University of Cyberjaya (UoC) has embarked on an ambitious endeavour to revolutionise the educational experience for aspiring creatives.

At the heart of this transformation lies the newly minted Faculty of Creative Arts and Design (FCAD), a visionary initiative aimed at empowering students with the tools, resources, and inspiration to thrive in the dynamic world of art and design.

Facilities play a pivotal role in shaping the learning journey of students pursuing creative disciplines.

Understanding this, UoC has made a significant investment in the creation of a dedicated floor exclusively catering to the FCAD programmes.

The faculty’s deputy dean Mohd Faiz Alias says, “Our unique approach to education sets FCAD apart from other institutions. By seamlessly integrating industry-relevant skills and cutting-edge technologies into our curriculum, we ensure that our graduates are not just prepared for the future – they are ahead of it.”
