The mission of the School of Continuing Studies in Macau University of Science and Technology is to develop as a professional and lifelong education school which nurtures innovation and high quality talent, which maintains its commitment to serve society and offers opportunities to enhance participants’ competitive abilities in their career paths.
Since 2003, the School of Continuing Studies (SCS) makes full use of the University’s rich resources and academic expertise to tailor-make the study plan and practical curriculum mix, with a variety of learning formats. Through this, it is able to respond to the needs for personnel training in society and to play a vital role in lifelong learning. The curriculum design of SCS programs places a strong emphasis on orientation to in-office student initiatives, usability, giving equal attention to theory and practice, enhancing problem solving skills and expanding learners’ career development. The SCS devotes significant attention to both training and education, providing diverse certificate/diploma courses in its term-time sessions and runing degree programs in evenings and weekends to accommodate learners’ needs and availability.
The School of Continuing Studies actively promotes the cultivation and encouragement of a learning culture; it strengthens collaborative opportunities locally and globally, and coordinates with the Macao SAR government’s policy of impelling Macao to be a learning society.
