UPNM's Excellent Academic Award (Anugerah Akademik Cemerlang) 2011

December 23rd 2011 UPNM organized its first academic award at Putrajaya Marriott Hotel. The categories are research, book writing, publication and teaching. I proudly nominated myself for three of the categories. But too bad I didn't win anything. It is tough to beat those seniors who already have strong track records.

Me and the bunch at the table:

However, Miss Khadijah from the Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering had won one of the Teaching Award. Congratulations to her for proving that young people can!

As consolation for those who didn't win anything like me, we also got something:

Its a 4GB SanDisk

AKEPT's Program Pembangunan Kepimpinan Tunas Akademia

I had involved a lot with politics during my service in MMU but I didn't hear anything about AKEPT. Even though I'm not really that young but I'm still required to attend the Tunas Akademia program from December 19th to 21st handled at Palm Garden Resort Putrajaya. I also just found out that UPNM is actually the Secretariat for Zon Tengah.

The main target for such program is to ensure that the academics, especially the young ones, are inline with the government's inspiration. It is not entirely politics but the stress is also put on their academic competency.

One of the talk.
