Research and Development Division

he Research and Development (R&D) Division, led by Vice President (R&D), was established in early 2008 to spearhead and manage research activities in Multimedia University (MMU). Prior to the establishment of the R&D Division, the responsibility to plan, coordinate, implement and monitor all R&D activities as well as postgraduate programmes in MMU was placed under Centre for Research and Postgraduate Programmes (CRPP). In addition to the above-mentioned core functions, the new R&D Division also plays an important role to synergise the development of Research-Development-Commercialisation (R-D-C) nexus in all research activities.
The primary objective of the R&D Division is to chart further direction of university R&D, manage and take proactive action to achieve university mission and vision. Amongst important strategies is to install a strong research culture in the university in order to generate quality research output. The mission is accomplished by providing effective support and services to the research community in MMU, ensuring quality postgraduate programmes and facilitating internal as well as external collaboration to promote research excellence. Entrepreneurship and commercialisation of university R&D outputs is greatly emphasised so as to benefit the economy and society more directly and explicitly of university R&D activities. In this regard, the R&D Division works closely with the faculties and academic centres in MMU as well as companies and other institutions to promote research, academic, and entrepreneurship excellence.

Specifically, the functions of the R&D Division are as follows:
  • To plan and strategise policies to materialise the vision and mission of the university
  • To inculcate a strong research culture among academic and support staff
  • To streamline research activities in niche and high impact areas
  • To promote R&D collaboration
  • To monitor research performance and postgraduate studies in the university
  • To administer R&D funds and other operational activities related to research
