BAKU (Azerbaijan), Nov 23 (Bernama) -- Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) and Khazar University of Azerbaijan has forged a new academic cooperation with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) here yesterday.

The MoU was inked by UniMAP deputy vice-chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni) Prof Dr Mohd Foad Sakdan and Khazar University rector Dr Hassan Niknafs, and was witnessed by Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail, who is also UniMAP Chancellor.

Tuanku Syed Faizuddin arrived here Tuesday to lead the UniMAP's delegation in their Tour of Knowledge to Azerbaijan.

Also present were Khazar University deputy rector Prof Mahammad Nuriyev and Malaysian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Datuk Roslan Abdul Rahman.

Khazar University, which was set up in 1991 with English as its medium of instruction, is among the leading universities in Azerbaijan.

Tuanku Syed Faizuddin, in his speech wanted all UniMAP programmes to be multidisciplinary with emphasis on the elements of 4th Industrial Revolution.

As such, he said all UniMAP laboratory equipment and facilities would be upgraded to ensure the implementation was in line with the objective.

In the aspect of research, he said efforts to commercialise 14 UniMAP research products had been initiated and that he was confident that the number would continue to increase.

"Successful commercialisation efforts would help generate income, create research products, and bring the university closer to the community," he said.

Tuanku Syed Faizuddin said UniMAP would also accept the Higher Education Ministry's call for all tertiary institutions to focus on competitive curriculum to meet the needs of the industry and the country.

In this regard, some of the less popular programmes would be rebranded or absorbed into the existing programmes at UniMAP, he said.
