KDU Postgraduate Research Centre (PGRC)

About Us

At KDU, we perceive the process of discovery as a creative and rigorous endeavour. We encourage such exploration by supporting the research and development of ideas, solutions and applications that will benefit our community.

KDU strives to inspire students and academic staff to share and serve in the academic field. The Postgraduate Research Centre (PGRC) at KDU aims to promote the enjoyment of learning and publishing research.

The KDU community is one that values learning and research at all levels. A dynamic range of workshops and programmes related to research and entrepreneurship exists to supplement the ongoing development of students and staff. In addition, KDU staff are supported in their quest to further deepen their expertise and network through research grants and conference support.
