Student Leadership Development Programme: 2nd Semester 2012
Monash University Sunway Campus
“Leadership in a Technological Environment Programme” implemented in Australia by Monash University has creatively and substantially demonstrated its success in developing additional leadership, communication and industry skills among Engineering students. The Programme, a joint initiative by the Faculty of Engineering and the industries will help their future careers and lives. It extends and challenges talented students.
The School of Engineering is now intending to offer a similar programme to engineering students who are pursuing their undergraduate studies at Monash University Sunway Campus. The programme will be open to students who have completed the second year engineering studies. The 10-20 top students selected will be exposed to a series of structured leadership development modules encompassing nine modules.
