UniMAP Spearheads 'KITA.Recycle' Project In Perak

Last update: 30/08/2017
KANGAR, Aug 29 (Bernama) -- Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) created history when it was chosen by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to be the sole public university to execute the 'KITA.Recycle' project under the National Blue Ocean Strategy (NBOS) in Perak.

The project that was organised at Sekolah Menengah Tun Perak (SMTP), Kuala Kangsar produced items like small chairs, mini coffee tables, racks for prayer mats and ail boxes, as well as repaired 15 chairs and two student desks using recycled materials.

UniMAP Faculty of Engineering (FTK) dean, Prof Dr Hazry Desa said a team of 30 undergraduates from numerous engineering schools, led by senior FTK lecturer, Dr Umar Kassim, was involved in the project which began on Aug 25 and ended yesterday.

"The project which is based on the concept of sharing of resources also involved MOE officers, UniMAP lecturers and students in the main activity of doing small repairs to the school building and facilities," he said in a press statement, here, today.

He said the project at SMTP also involved 15 local agencies including the Kuala Kangsar Municipal Council (MPKK), Public Works Department and Forestry Department.

Hazry said the involvement of UniMAP in the university social responsibility (USR) programme began four years ago through the Higher Education Ministry's NBOS project involving two schools in Kelantan, with the aim of boosting the quality of education in the schools.
