UUM Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Seri Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak said, as a management university, UUM has truly proven to be the best in Malaysia and among the best in the region as evinced by numerous notable achievements attained by the university including the accreditation from The Association of MBAs (AMBA) and ABEST21.
"If we continue to improve and strengthen the management education in this university, along with other academic disciplines for instance the Arts, Science and Computer Science subjects, UUM will attain greater success. This will certainly help to boost the reputation and rankings of the university. Our aim is to be placed among the top 200 in QS Rankings,” said Dato’ Seri Vice-Chancellor at a ceremony to celebrate the achievements of the School of Computing (SOC). The event was held at the SOC Meeting Room yesterday.
For that reason, the Vice-Chancellor has called on the denizens of the SOC to gear-up and play a greater role in assisting the university to achieve its agenda.
"SOC can help the university by intensifying efforts in producing research and publication especially in ISI journals. SOC must also identify and place a benchmark against other universities if the school hoped to be placed among the top 100 in the World University Rankings by subject. Besides intensifying the research efforts, SOC must also establish a well-defined Centre of Excellence (COE),” added the Vice-Chancellor.
In addition, the Vice-Chancellor stated that as a school which focuses on technology, the SOC should keep abreast with the rapid technological change especially in updating the curriculum and programmes offered at the school.
Also present at the event were the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation), Prof Dr Noor Azizi Ismail; Dean of SOC, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Huda Haji Ibrahim; Director of Chancellery, Mr. Ahmad Rasidi Abdullah and the Heads of Departments at SOC.
