Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh and Greetings,
Alhamdulillah, I would like to humbly thank you for the trust given by the faculty and the highest administration of UMK for me to lead the Faculty of Earth Science (FSB).Indeed, it is a tough challenge and responsibility to drive the FSB faculty across the current and future wave of education.
FSB is now 8 years old and has become one of the most important faculties in UMK. In 2019, various achievements have been successfully realized either nationally or internationally. The increase in the total amount of research funds by 95% from the previous year with a total of RM 1.3 million shows our fighting spirit and ability to move forward. Armed with this spirit, I am confident that FSB members will able to continue this excellence and achieve better success.
FSB academics, administration and support are the mainstay of FSB excellence every year. To ensure that the FSB is always up to date, up-to-date skills and knowledge are very important. For that, I will ensure that the faculty members get the best training at home and abroad. International industry and mobility attachment activities for faculty members will be conducted in line with the motto "lifelong learning".
Year 2020, I want to bring the whole faculty into a new phase, a new mission of internationalization of the FSB. With the strong support of the "TOP GUN" faculty management team, all FSB academic programs will be mobilized to gain international body recognition in their respective fields. In addition, mobility activities, fieldwork and industrial training on the international stage will be enhanced. All this is done to ensure that graduates born from FSB have the advantage of being a prospective employer.
All plans for this FSB will not come rolling. It collects all the sweat and hard work of all faculty members. Only with the cooperation, focus, and determination to uphold the FSB can it be achieved. Let us put the FSB ahead of our differences and I end the speech with,
“Nothing is impossible and together we can achieve excellence”
