Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and Greetings.
It is my distinct pleasure to welcome everyone of you including our new students to the Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) campus and the Faculty of Applied Science and Technology (FAST).
FAST welcome you to explore all aspects of the Faculty through the website. We are always looking for the next generation of students to join our University. We share the aspiration of the University to produce professionals through high-quality academic programmes based on Science and Technology. In line with the requirements by the country and industry, the learning process that you will go through emphasizes on the understanding and mastering of the core field, apart from building up competency that focuses among others in Mathematics Technology, Industrial Statistics, Applied Physics, Food Technology and Biodiversity & Conservation.
We are proud to mention that our programmes have received accreditation from the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA). The programmes also emphasize our commitment to integrate the aspects of industrial experience and also international exposures. Professionals from various industries have been appointed as faculty’s Industrial Advisors. They have participated and contributed actively towards the developments of our programmes and students through meeting and seminars, industrial visits and trainings. It also compulsory for the students to spend part of their time for Industrial training.
Undoubtedly the availability of good infrastructure and expensive research equipment is important to accelerate the success of a Faculty particularly the postgraduate programmes and research. To date, we have a few of the latest equipment to support our teaching and research activities. However, it is important to note that the success of FAST and UTHM will depend highly on the commitment and dedication of the professional academic and support staffs, working together with our enthusiastic students, as they are the ultimate architects of the Faculty’s success.
Finally, on behalf of FAST, I wish you every success for your future endeavours. I am sure the journey that you will experience with us will contribute towards creating responsible graduates with positive attributes. Let’s also hope that the knowledge, skills, and wisdom will guide you as we shape a better future for the country and humankind.
