A total of 3,240 graduates received their scrolls at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak’s (Unimas) 18th convocation ceremony over the weekend.

Of the total, 3,016 had completed their undergraduate studies while 224 were post-graduate students.

Unimas vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi said they included the first and second batch of students in the Master of Science (Learning Sciences) by Coursework programme, comprising 27 graduates.

Unimas chancellor Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud called on the university to develop new academic programmes which would meet the needs of industries and the state for the next 10 years.

He said this was in line with Sarawak’s rapid economic growth and manpower requirements, besides helping to establish Unimas as a hub of educational excellence in the region.

“Unimas is an important institution of higher education as it plays a significant role in the state’s development agenda and human capital advancement.

“I would like to see strategic and smart partnerships between Unimas, the state government and industry players, both local and international, to strengthen its academic performance,” he said in his speech in the first session of the convocation.

Taib also hoped Unimas could contribute further to the development of higher education in Sarawak.

“Unimas must systematic and smart in its efforts to continue its academic and research excellence. Cohesive steps should be taken to raise academic quality, broaden the scope of research to attract the interest of students and staff as well as strengthen smart partnerships with industries,” he said.

Meanwhile, Unimas vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi said the university now had 16,452 students, including 4,085 new students who enrolled in September.

He said the university had increased its facilities to accommodate the growing number of students, such as a new hostel and a new building for the Medical and Health Sciences Faculty.

“We are also planning to build a teaching hospital to enhance our medical and health sciences programme,” he added.
