Hello, and welcome to GUST. People make a University great, so whether you are a prospective student, current student, professor, researcher, staff member, graduate, parent, neighbor, or visitor, your interest and enthusiasm are valued and appreciated.
On this page, I would like to share with you the inspiration behind establishing the Global University of Science & Technology (GUST) and the unique value that GUST can offer you.
Since the industrial revolution, technology has been changing at a rapid pace. In the 21st century, globalization has created enormous pressure on both the corporate and public sector in terms of market reform and privatization, which have resulted in short to medium term contracting in engineering and business.
In addition to my postgraduate engineering and business education, I spent over a decade of my consulting life studying the works of the world’s leading engineering business guide. I made sure that I took notes from every success and failure that I came across, be it mine or someone else’s. I continued… until I built what I thought was “the ultimate engineering business knowledge base” of the brightest and the most successful.
After more than two decades of research and experience, I found that professionals and companies weren’t satisfied with education system, R&D activities and business functions at that moment, which don’t meet the requirements in the working environment. The shortcoming in the education system and market-oriented R&D as well as the wide gap between science and technology functions, motivated me to form competency assurance committee with several members. The members consist of S&T Practitioners, Industry Consultants, Academics and Business Leaders.
We commenced our studies with how to build competent leaders in different industries. Throughout the years, we had been working hard on doing researches and applied the outcomes of the researches in all industries. We gained great success in the research results when we applied. These results encouraged us to create global customer-oriented organization for working professionals and companies. However, science and technology functions are the base of companies to compete and survive in the globalization era.
These were the inspiration behind the founding of the University: Bridging the gap between science & technology and creating strong community of working professionals and companies pursuing excellence in business. As well as fostering the acquisition of knowledge, skills and competencies necessary to become global future leaders.
The GUST programs and degrees are non-traditional, responsive to industry needs and market demands with flexible delivery options. These programs can be completed on-campus, in-house and via distance-learning.
The GUST is a global multifaceted academic and development complex where all learn, teach and help one another in an atmosphere of mutual respect and pursuit of excellence. It is a global federation of affiliated institutions in different countries. These affiliates institutions are legal entities to impart educational and developmental programs in their respective countries. All affiliates institutions extend seamless access to high quality, affordable and convenient learning opportunities as well as global knowledge transfer network throughout GUST.
At GUST, our number one goal is to build the best possible global knowledge transfer network, consisting of the best and brightest experts in each field. All of GUST staff members are result-oriented professors, experts and consultants who are successful in their own rights. They understand key S&T drivers, performance metrics, and leverage. Most importantly, they are passionate advocates of the “80:20” rule. Beyond GUST collective intelligence, probably the most valuable service, we could provide you, is to save you time, efforts and cost needed to advance your career and develop your business.
We wish you success
Global University of Science and Technology
