About Us

From cognitive psychology, artificial intelligence and virtual reality to human resource development and clinical counseling, the Faculty of Cognitive Sciences & Human Development takes a university education and focuses it on challenges and opportunities in the real world. Our impact reaches beyond the boundaries of UNIMAS to benefit Sarawak, Malaysia and the world.

We are the first university in South East Asia to recognize the importance of the studies for understanding the mechanism of the mind, the nature of intelligence and a sophisticated knowledge of human factors in computers and technology to the growth areas of this millennium. We took advantage of this by offering an undergraduate degree in Cognitive Sciences - B. Sc. (Cognitive Science) with honors.

The Faculty was established in 1994 and offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Human Resource Development, Cognitive Science, Counselling through three main departments.

In terms of research the Faculty has identified three main areas, namely psychology, intelligent system and human factor and learning sciences under the Cognitive Science area. Another area is Human Resource Development which centres on human capital and development management and technology. Counselling, involves research into organisational counselling, technological and clinical.
