Students matriculating from Semester 1 2013/2014 will be enrolled in the Generation Next (GenNEXT) undergraduate degrees. The degrees on offer are; Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Health Sciences, Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Engineering.
The GenNEXT curriculum is a student-centric approach to education and lays the foundation for life-long learning. It seeks to equip students with essential skills of critical thinking, reasoning, communication, quantitative analysis and with both a national and global perspective. Three principles embedded in all the GenNEXT modules are: 1) Entrepreneurship, 2) Leadership and Innovation; and 3) Environmental Awareness.
The GenNEXT curriculum is designed to enhance students’ knowledge and competency in specific disciplinary areas as well as broad-based knowledge outside their major discipline, providing students with flexibility in choice of careers. Thus, GenNEXT involves a balanced combination of depth and breadth. By the end of the degree, a student should know a disciplinary area well, its main ideas, methodology and current questions and issues. At the same time, he/she should have broad exposure to knowledge beyond a student’s disciplinary specialization.
