Grads can contribute towards execution of programmes and policies, says CM

on 27 Oktober 2011.

SAMARAHAN: The contributions of graduates for the improvement of the state’s delivery system are pivotal to ensure that plans under various transformation programmes are better executed.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said nowadays the government was more open to public feedback on its programmes and policies to ensure that no one would be left out of mainstream development.

“The contributions of graduates should not be limited to their respective field of studies when they pursue their careers.

“They should also inform the government on ways to improve its policies and delivery system for the benefit of everyone,” he said.

Otherwise, the government’s initiatives like 1Malaysia, New Economic Model, National Key Results Area and Government Transformation Programme might not benefit all Malaysians, he said when officiating at the 15th convocation of Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) here yesterday.

The two-day convocation will see 1,651 graduates receiving their bachelor (1,517), master’s (126) and PhD (eight) degrees at the new Dewan Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra of the West Campus.

About two thirds of the bachelor degree holders or 1,022 are women.

Congratulating Unimas for producing quality graduates for the nation, Taib who is also pro-chancellor, urged the university to have more local knowledge-based researches done so that these could be shared at the international arena.

He said Unimas was on the right path in keeping up with the latest technology and researches, and demand in human capital development with courses tailored towards achieving a high income nation and meeting the needs of heavy industries in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE).

He further suggested that Unimas use its alumni data as an index on the university’s success in job placement and career for graduates.

“Graduates in return should also contribute to the development of their alma mater which is a norm in world renowed universities like Harvard, Cambridge, and Oxford,” he said.

Earlier, Unimas vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Khairuddin Ab Hamid said the university had introduced new fields of research in line with SCORE development in the central region.

“These fields of research comprise biodiversity and envi-ron-mental management, emerging tropical and infectious diseases,

“ICT development and for development, renewable energy/green technology, and industrial design,” he said.

He said Unimas was also working with the state govern-ment and NGOs through a consortium, U-SCORE, to ensure the courses offered by local universities would match the state’s industrial needs.

This year’s convocation also saw seven graduates receiving excellent academic awards. Chua Kim Eng who graduated in civil engineering and Khaddraa Rajuli in human resources development received the highest Royal Education Awards.

The Chancellor Award went to Khairunnabihah Zainal Abidin who took up international studies, while Donald Stephen who studied cognitive science received the Pro-Chancellor Award.

The Special Senate Awards went to Lau Ee Li and Kiu Pey Jing who both graduated in civil engineering, and Alex Wong Yik Khai who graduated in mechanical and manufacturing engineering.
