Director's Message

The emergence of technology has brought forth the change in the way society perceives ideas, trends and perspectives. Despite the rapid development which sees the rise of New Media, Industrial Revolution 4.0 as well as Society 5.0, knowledge in academia will always be an integral part of human development and excellence. As we progress from Society 1.0 which saw humans getting familiar with hunting and gathering, to the agricultural practise of Society 2.0, then the industrial and information activities of Societies 3.0 and 4.0 respectively and finally, the new society deemed as Society 5.0 where we have a human-centric society using an integration of cyberspace and physical space to eradicate social problems while balances the economic advancement at the same time.

The vast penetration of technology means that we are globally connected now more than ever. There is always a need to be on par with the rest of the world and this is achievable in a technology-literate and peaceful country like Malaysia. Being a part of UiTM too, allows CMIWS to expand and grow to better serve and cater to the needs of the ever-connected fields of information and media warfare studies.

At CMIWS, we value the multiple disciplines of critical and analytical thinking in fostering academic excellence. Moreover, we find it crucial to equip our students with the necessary knowledge and awareness in the fields of public diplomacy, intelligence and security. Essentially, we believe that the right formula in securing the most desired career path is in the effective deliverance of academic courses by experienced scholars and practitioners, which the centre has been doing for a more than a decade now.
