Unimas to help lure Sarawakians abroad to return and serve state

on 26 Oktober 2011.


KOTA SAMARAHAN: Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) will help the state government lure locals working abroad to return and serve the state, especially at Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (Score).

Unimas Vice Chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Khairuddin Ab Hamid said the initiative is taken via a study being conducted by the state government involving the recruitment of strategic manpower for Score.

"Via Score, the government can lure them to return by offering more secure jobs, a stronger economy and a more advanced and comfortable way of life," he

said at Unimas' 15th convocation here today.

Unimas also collaborated with the state government to creat U-Score, a consortium of higher education institutions, to identify, organise and plan

courses and technical training for Score's industrial plan.

In line with the development of Score, Unimas has identified five research

areas that can be the core of available expertise, environmental management and

He said the others are derived from emerging tropical and infectious
diseases, development of ICT and ICT for development, renewable energy and green
technology and industrial design.

Unimas has successfully implemented rural electrification projects using RM4mil government funds via the Centre of Excellence for Renewable Energy (CoERE) and recently signed an agreement with Malaysian Genomics Resources Centre (MGRC) for Primates Genome projects worth RM500mil.

Meanwhile, Unimas board of directors chairman Datuk Dr Hatta Solhi said Uminas' growth means that more students from peninsular can observe and learn about the harmonious life in Sarawak based on the 1Malaysia concept.

It has impacted economic growth in Kota Samarahan and Sarawak in general via the creation of business opportunities and employment to locals.

Student intake has increased drastically for the new semester with 3,436
making it among the largest for universities in Malaysia.

Unimas has 11,200 students of whom 167 are international students.
