KUCHING: Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) students have been asked to actively take part in faculty activities during their university years.

Unimas Engineering Faculty deputy dean (postgraduate and research) Dr Hushairi Zen said taking part in organising activities such as Engineering Week not only raises awareness about the programme but is also good for character-building.

“Students will be able to learn a lot from organising such activities,” he pointed out when launching Engineering Week 2013 at the campus yesterday.

Hushairi praised Unimas students for being able to organise the yearly event.

“This proves that the engineering students have great talent in management and organising, besides being good academically.

“There are many programmes lined up for Engineering Week, including some that are not related to engineering. However, they are equally important and interesting. I hope this big-scale activity will continue to benefit everyone involved,” he said.

The four-day Engineering Week 2013 ends on Saturday (Dec 7).

It aims to give an overview of current technology in line with the theme ‘Engineering Beyond Technology’ to produce engineers who are balanced in terms of spiritual and intellectual development, as well as to enhance the creativity and innovative thinking of students.

Activities include Honda Hybrid Car Autoshow, RC Flying Exhibition and Workshop, Women Engineers Session and Premier Forum.
