This unit serves as a one-stop centre for students and prospective employers. The year-long activities include Career Talks, In-house Interview Sessions, Career Fairs and Employment Preparatory Programme. The objective is to build a strong foundation in students for them to be career-ready and well-accepted in the job market.
With the mission to be an ideal and strategic unit within the institution that is engaged and able to provide quality services to students, alumni and prospective career providers alike, EPU offers career-related services with emphasis on enhancing the students’ employability.
