UUM ONLINE: 4 February - The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Seri Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak chaired the CoE Strategic Development and Achievement Committee Meeting (CoECM) No.1 / 2018 at the Senate Meeting Room, Chancellery this morning.
The meeting which involved all UUM heads of Centres of Excellence (CoEs) was aimed at monitoring the progress of all CoEs.
The Vice-Chancellor in his welcoming remarks said that the CoEs at UUM had yet to successfully stand out as a CoE which could be proud of whether at UUM level, the nation or internationally.
"Hence, the CoEs at UUM need to learn from the other CoEs in Malaysia that have been elevated to become the Higher Education Centre of Excellence (HiCOE) and CoE for the region that are excellent and have become point of reference to various parties such as the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, a Singapore-based research institute ," he said.
At the meeting, RIMC presented the overall achievement of all CoEs at UUM. Apart from that, two selected CoEs also presented their respective achievements.
