Call For UiTM To Re-Establish Faculty Of Pure Science In Kuala Pilah

Last update: 04/09/2017
KUALA PILAH, Sept 4 (Bernama) -- Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) has been proposed to re-establish the Faculty of Pure Science at its campus here so that the campus, which was built in 1999, could be put into optimal use.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said students of the faculty were initially placed at the campus here before they moved into UiTM campuses in Seremban and Pilin in Rembau, upon their completion in 2014 and 2016, respectively.

"I agree for a round table discussion to be held with the UiTM management to have the Faculty of Pure Science here (Kuala Pilah campus). This is because the faculty rarely has a huge number of students, especially among the Malays, not in UiTM or any other universities.

"To accommodate some 5,000 students, I think we can just fully utilise the existing Kuala Pilah campus and its facilities," he told reporters after the handing over of keys of Type A affordable houses to 50 recipients in Taman Senimas here today.

Also present were State Secretary Datuk Seri Mat Ali Hassan, State Unity and National Integration Committee chairman Datuk Ismail Lasim and Juaseh assemblyman Datuk Mohammad Razi Kail.

The menteri besar said the UiTM campus here currently has about 5,000 students from three faculties, namely the Faculty of Administrative Science and Policy Studies, Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, and the Faculty of Sport Science and Recreation, with 50 per cent of them enjoying hostel facilities.

Earlier in his speech, Mohamad said the influx of UiTM students in Kuala Pilah had boosted the economy of the local community, including those who provide houses for rent.

However, the situation changed when the students moved to the new campuses in Seremban and Pilin.
