Research Is The Core Focus Of UiTM Selangor Branch


On 22 October 2021 I paid a visit to the Rector’s Office of the UiTM Selangor branch (UCS). UCS comprises 5 campuses (in Puncak Alam, Puncak Perdana, Sg. Buloh/Selayang and Dengkil) , 12 faculties, 1 academic centre and 3 centres of excellence, 2 medical centres and 1 newly established teaching Hospital. UCS, houses a total enrolment of 28,432 students and 3,937 employees, is primarily focused on research and development, and has received RM8,474,806.50 in grants in 2021, including Community Joint Research with MOSTI and Manjung Aquabest Hatchery, Optometric Research Based on Community Engagement Programmes, MESTECC Transdisciplinary and Translational Research, MakerLab, and more.

Then I adjourned the meeting for a tree planting activity where I was assisted by Encik Irwan Ismadi, Landscape Architect who briefed us on some basic facts about the plant and the soil. I made my last stop at the Richiamo Coffee to meet and greet a group of students who were spending time at the cafe. I thanked members of the UCS team for sharing their latest progress and development with me.

In the name of Allah the most Merciful the Beneficent. We offer our thanks and gratitude to each member of our #keluargaUiTM and for the opportunity for us to come together to do good. May Allah grant us protection and allow us to contribute for the betterment of the ummah and the world.
