Message From The Dean

In line with the Vision, Mission and UMS Strategic Plan, the Faculty of Food Science and Nutrition has progressed and adopted the Faculty's Strategic Plan 2005-2015. This action manifests the Faculty's commitment to the University's aspiration to achieve University of Excellence status.

Towards the effort to produce quality graduates who are competitive and resilient through life long learning, the school has outlined the quality policy based on MS ISO 9001:2000 to improve the quality of undergraduate teaching services.

Since its inception in 1997, about 3 years later than the establishment of Universiti Malaysia Sabah, the Faculty of Food Science and Nutrition has been attached to other established schools namely Faculty of Science and Technology and lately the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology until the end of May, 2006. Now we have been accorded our own new building of the Faculty of Food Science and Nutrition sited beside the scenic and majestic view of the UMS Mosque.

The new building allocated us with some 25 laboratories ranging from a food processing pilot plant to an animal house for research purposes. The Faculty's organizational structure is strengthened to intensify the skills and effectiveness of the Faculty's administrative management. The Faculty will also upgrade the infrastructure and laboratory facitlities for the convenience of students (both undergraduate and postgraduate) and increase the number of human resources, especially lecturers and tutors to fulfill the specific needs in academic.

I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the most invaluable support from the management of Universiti Malaysia Sabah, University's principal officials, Faculty's management personnel and staffs who help to facilitate in the operation of Faculty's activities.
