UMS told: Tap oil and gas role


KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Mohd Noor wants Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) to produce future entrepreneurs, especially among Sabah students in oil and gas (O&G) field.

This was only apt since UMS was currently producing graduates in the O&G field, he said, when meeting with UMS Board of Directors Chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan and Vice Chancellor Prof. Datuk Dr Taufiq Yap Yun Hin at his office in the State Administrative Centre (PPNS), Monday.

Abdul Rahman said the courtesy call was to inform Hajiji of his appointment as one of the two Pro Chancellors of UMS replacing former CM Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.

The Chief Minister was informed that the appointment letter would be presented by the Head of State soon.

Abdul Rahman said the other Pro Chancellor was Tan Sri Azman Hashim who is the Chairman of Arab Malaysian Bank.

Abdul Rahman and Dr Taufiq also briefed Hajiji on the latest developments and challenges faced by UMS such as students’ housing and the status of UMS Smart Hospital building that has been delayed due to the pandemic. 

At the same time, UMS was offering the State Government expertise in research particularly on the economy, policies amongst others.

Abdul Rahman also expressed UMS’ keenness to work with the State Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry as its science and technology advisor.

Since all universities have been given autonomy to be self-sufficient, he said he believed UMS and the State Government could explore possible collaborations in many fields.
