Unisel Graduates In Great Demand - Rosmah | 11/03/2010
Untitled document SHAH ALAM, March 11 2010 (Bernama) -- Graduates of Universiti Industri Selangor (Unisel) are in great demand in the marketplace because of their physical, intelellectual and creativity capabilities, said Unisel Chancellor Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

She said the good job the university had done in producing highly capable graduates should be continued further in carving out a name for istelf not only locally but also at the international level.

"I find Unisel graduates are inclined to increase their knowledge and design capabilities and have good personalities besides being excellent communicators, which are qualities the working world looks for," she said in her speech at the university's 3rd convocation for its Japanese Engineering Diploma students at the Shah Alam Convention here on Thursday.

Also present were Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, Deputy Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Hasan Malek and Japan's ambassador to Malaysia, Horie Masahiko.

Rosmah said Unisel had proven its ability to produce quality graduates in various fields of study, particularly in Japanese engineering, which made them very versatile.

"This was proven through the organising of programmes to further boost their potential like the Japanese Speech Contest, Japanese Drama Contest and the Robocon Competition 2010," she said.

Unisel, which was founded in 1999, now has entered into smart partnerships with 20 universities in Japan and 40 universities in Indonesia besides collaborating with Oxford University, Cambridge University and Imperial College in the United Kingdom in research.

Rosmah, who is also the prime minister's wife, added that wealth creation now did not only encompass material things like land and estates but also depended on a knowledgeable mind and high intellectual capability.

"The challenge now and in the future will be harnessing the powers the mind," she said, adding that Malaysians should count themselves fortunate in that they had wide access to quality education.

At the function, Nurrul Syafawati Humam, who completed her Japanese engineering diploma in electrical and electronic studies, was selected as the winner of the Chancellor's Gold Award.

Met by reporters afterwards, Nurrul, 21, said she would be continuing her studies at the degree level in nanotechnology or semiconductor technology at a leading university in Tokyo.

Seventy-nine students received their diplomas at the convocation.
