The Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) offered at Razak Faculty of Technology and Informatics is a research award degree program for those holding a Bachelor’s degree (in any field) who would like to expand and upgrade their knowledge. This multi-disciplinary program assists candidates to develop skills in high level analysis and presentation, as well as integrate academic and professional concerns. Successful completion of the program will indicate that candidates have successfully completed a course of research training. The M.Phil thesis is expected to make an invaluable contribution of new knowledge or to existing body of knowledge in the field.

Master of Philosophy in Industrial Design

The Master of Philosophy in Industrial Design program is a full time research program that puts emphasis on a systematic approach to product development. The program is problem-oriented, creative and innovative with the objective to produce graduates with critical and independent thinks skills who would later become industrial designers capable of independently solving problems.
