Research Agenda

LSU has fully embraced the Education 5.0 Doctrine by the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Innovation, Science and Technology Development. Innovation and industrialisation dominated the academic provision space as the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Innovation, Science and Technology Development continued to emphasise the need for heritage-based education and encouraged universities to take a leading role in the production of goods and services for the nation. Quality Assurance within the University continued to be enhanced across all teaching and non-teaching departments in a bid to guarantee our learners a quality learning experience and environment.Click Here to go the Research Agenda page
