IPQ DRIVES UUM’S ENDLESS POTENTIALS

DARI MEJA PENGARAH
MENGGILAP PERMATA DUNIA PENDIDIKAN
UUM terus mengorak langkah demi langkah. Kesungguhan pihak Pengurusan
UUM di bawah kepimpinan Prof. Dato’ Seri Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak
untuk menzahirkan apa yang diimpikan negara iaitu untuk memiliki sebuah
universiti berfokus dalam bidang Pengurusan semakin menjadi kenyataan.
UUM terus menyerlahkan dirinya dalam QS University Rankings – Asia di
mana berada dikedudukan 299 Asia pada 2012, 224 pada 2013, 219 pada
2014, dan 193 pada 2015 dan buat pertama kalinya dalam sejarah di mana
UUM tersenarai dikedudukan 701+ juga dalam QS World University Rankings
pada tahun 2015. Menariknya UUM hari ini berada dikedudukan lebih baik
dari Singapore Management University (SMU) yang merupakan sebuah lagi
universiti berfokuskan Pengurusan.
Menariknya tentang UUM ialah pengurusan tertinggi universiti dan warganya
terus berusaha untuk menjadikan UUM sebagai sebuah universiti penyelidikan
dalam bidang sains sosial. Semua tahu bahawasanya permasalahan
negara dan dunia hari ini bukan semata-mata berpaksikan kepada sains
dan teknologi sahaja. Kepincangan ekonomi, politik, kemasyarakatan dan
seumpamanya adalah isu sains sosial dan perlu ditangani menggunakan
ilmu sains sosial.
Keberanian UUM untuk terus mengorak langkah untuk menjadi pelopor
dalam penyelidikan di bidang ini telah mula menampakkan hasil. Pasti
proses untuk menggerakkan warga akademik sekitar 1200 agar faham
dan dukung context, content and process sains sosial yang benar-benar
berpaksikan kepentingan negara dan masyarakat global memakan masa
dan memerlukan perancangan dan tindakan rapi.

What makes UUM interesting is the university higher management and
denizens are working forward to emerge UUM as a research university in
the field of social sciences. It is well known that the setbacks of the country
and the world today is not solely centred on science and technology alone.
Shortcomings from the economic, political, society and such are the issues of
social sciences and needs to be addressed using the approaches of social
sciences.

Untuk itu UUM telah dan akan menambah bilangan Centre of Excellence
(CoE) di peringkat universiti dan di pusat-pusat pengajian. Usaha ini bakal
akan dimuktamadkan sekitar Jun 2016 ini dan dijangka mampu menzahirkan
idea menjadikan UUM sebagai sebuah universiti penyelidikan dalam bidang
sains sosial. UUM tekad untuk menjadi universiti dan pusat kajian berkaitan
daya saing perniagaan dan masyarakat menjadi kenyataan.

The courage of UUM to continue making strides to become a pioneer in
this research field has begun to bear fruit. UUM has to move a number of
1200 academic staff to understand and uphold the context, content and
process of social sciences that is really bounded with the national interest and
the global community. The effort will definitely take some time and requires
thorough planning and actions.

Kesungguhan ini dapat dilihat menerusi Pelan Transformasi UUM yang
dibahagi kepada 2 Fasa iaitu Pelan Strategik Fasa 1 (2011-2015) dan Pelan
Strategik Fasa 2 (2016-2020). Alhamdulillah Pelan Strategik Fasa 1 telah selesai
di mana pencapaiannya boleh dirumuskan sebagai membanggakan. Kini
UUM telah mula mengorak langkah untuk merealisasikan Pelan Strategik
Fasa 2. Menariknya akan Pelan Transformasi ini ialah ia telah berjaya menjadi
pemacu kepada pembentukan DNA UUM.

In order to make it a reality, UUM has and will be adding numbers of Centre
of Excellence (CoE) at the University and schools level. The effort will be
finalized around June 2016 and is expected to realize the idea of making
UUM as a research university in the field of social sciences. UUM is determined
to materialize its intention to become a university and research centre related
to business and society competitiveness.

DNA UUM yang sedang dibentuk adalah berpaksikan usaha untuk
memastikan terzahir dalam diri setiap warganya (ahli kademik, pentadbiran
dan pelajar/alumni) akan ketinggian ILMU, keluhuran BUDI dan kesungguhan
menabur BAKTI. Seperti diketahui ianya adalah juga moto UUM. Adalah tidak
mustahil untuk negara dan dunia menyaksikan UUM benar-benar menjadi
sebuah universiti pengurusan yang hebat ilmu, budi dan baktinya.

The commitment can be seen through UUM Transformation Plan which was
divided into two phases – Strategic Plan Phase I (2011-2015) and Strategic
Plan Phase II (2016-2020). Praise to Allah, Strategic Plan Phase I has come to a
close and achieved astounding results. UUM is now in the move to realise its
Strategic Plan Phase II. Remarkably, the development of the Transformation
Plan has successfully steered the establishment of UUM’s DNA.

Akhir kata, sekarang adalah masa yang sesuai buat Kementerian Pengajian
Tinggi khususnya dan negara amnya memberi perhatian, sokongan padu
kepada UUM dalam usahanya untuk menjadi universiti penyelidikan dalam
bidang sains sosial kerana dalam tempoh 10 tahun akan datang UUM
dijangka akan benar-benar menjadi permata yang bergemerlapan. UUM
menyeru semua pihak untuk berganding bahu dalam membangunkan
agenda universiti.

The formation of UUM DNA is oriented on the effort ensuring the denizens
(academic staff, administrative and students/alumni) of the value of
KNOWLEDGE, nobleness of VIRTUE and the determination to host SERVICE.
Known to all, it is also the UUM motto. It is not impossible for the country and
the world to witness UUM as an eminent management university with high
KNOWLEDGE, VIRTUE and SERVICE.
Finally, I believe now is the best time for the Ministry of Higher Education
specifically and the country, in general to pay attention and provide endless
support to UUM in its effort to become a research university in the field of
social sciences because in 10 years time, UUM is expected to sparkle. Hence,
UUM is calling everyone to be part of the journey.

POLISHING THE GEM OF EDUCATION WORLD
UUM continue to strive forward step by step. The determination of UUM
management under the leadership of Prof. Dato’ Seri Dr. Mohamed Mustafa
Ishak to materialized the country’s vision having a university focusing in the
field of management is becoming a reality. UUM continues to distinguish itself
in QS University Rankings – Asia making it at 299th place during 2012, 244th in
2013, 213th in 2014, and 193rd in 2015, and for the first time in history, UUM was
listed at 701+ in QS World University Rankings in 2015. Noteworthy, UUM today
is in a better position compared to Singapore Management University (SMU)
which is also a university focusing on Management.

SHOWCASING EXCELLENCE
A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
Sr. Dr. Mohd Nasrun Mohd Nawi specializes in the area of integrated
procurement and value management. He holds a PhD in the
field of Construction Project Management from the University of
Salford, U.K. As an academician, he has been active in research
and consultation works related to the fields of offsite and modern
methods of construction such as the Industrialised Building System
(IBS), sustainable construction, and value management. Besides
actively involved in various academic activities, he is also an
active author with more than 200 published articles in various type
of publications.
Q: What are your strategies for publications?
A: Personally, I have few strategies for publications. Obtaining
a research grant is the very first crucial step to take, because it
will help initiate and facilitate the whole publication process.
From the grant, publication can be generated, based on solid
empirical data. Next is networking. It is very important to have a
large network of contacts especially in the same research area.
Since I actively attend conferences, participate in courses, and
get involved in other activities where academicians and industry
DEPUTY DIRECTOR (PUBLICATION) RIMC
players congregate, I would make it a point to get to know other
participants, especially if they happen to be editors or managing
editors of journals or publication related organisations. Grabbing opportunities to communicate and get to know these people would be
beneficial as it would be easier to gain insights about article publication opportunities. At the same time, attending courses, seminars, and etc.,
would create a platform of opportunities for me to get to know researchers from other universities, especially the Research Universities (RU). I
would be able to benefit from them especially in terms of strategies to increase paper citation and perhaps in creating future opportunities
to co-author new articles.

SR. DR. MOHD NASRUN
MOHD NAWI

In order to be current, I have to be alert at all times of the high impact journals, especially Scopus and WoS-indexed journals, where wise
selection and consistent periodical submissions are the keys to publication success. I will try to submit my articles to the top ranked journals,
such as the listed Q1 journals, if rejected, then I would try and submit to other journals levels such as the Q3 or Q4 classified journals. I need
to be alert with my journal selection. I will also look for “call for papers” announcements as some editors are keen to look for articles and
perhaps facilitate my articles to get published. Last but not least, as an academician, one knows that one’s responsibility and mission is to
disseminate knowledge through publication, so, one needs to have a mindset that publication is fun and enjoyable, and not stressful.
Q: As the Deputy Director of RIMC, what are your expectations for the research and publication at UUM?
A: I really hope to inculcate publication culture among the academicians here. I expect every School to achieve their KPIs and increase
their research publications performance. Lastly, I wish that all the publication outputs are made available as open access to anyone
interested, especially students, in order to educate them and at the same time expose them to the knowledge of research and publication
knowledge. In the future, I hope that the number of UUM publication can be increased, especially in high impact journals as listed in the
Q1 category, in order to improve the number of citations and thus ultimately help in elevating the university’s ranking.
Q: Can you tell us the roles of RIMC in Research and Publication?
A: RIMC is responsible to increase the number of research and publications among the researchers in order to achieve the University’s KPI.
We are also responsible to record all the research and publication outputs, such as articles, books, chapters in books, monographs, and
etc. We are also held accountable in enhancing the number of citations, either in WoS, Scopus, or Google Scholar.
Q: Where do you see UUM in Research and Publication in 5 years’ time?
A: In 5 years’ time, I believe the research and publication in UUM has become a culture among the academic staff and students. Recently,
we can see the numbers of Principal Investigator (PI) increasing. Same goes with the publications. I can foresee that the publication
among academic staff and students will increase especially in journals article publications. I am expecting to see positive increase of
articles published in journals indexed by Scopus and WoS (ISI).
Q: How to get there? Describe 3 major strategies?
A: Cooperation between RIMC, library and Schools need to be pushed to the maximum level. Sessions of briefings and workshops to expose
the importance of research and publications to the academic staff and students are essential in promoting the idea of enculturation of
research and publication. One of the strategies is the exposure to online indexed publications as it will increase the university ranking
through Webometrics. Secondly, to increase collaboration with other high ranking universities (local or abroad) in terms of research and
publication. Finally, the development of HiCoE and CoEs in order to improve the number of research and publication, where researchers
can concentrate and be more motivated to conduct research and produce publications as their research areas will be more specific
and focused.
Q: Is there any special incentives given by the university for publication? Please describe.
A: The current postgraduate incentives and other incentives schemes such as Skim Pembiayaan Yuran Penerbitan Jurnal (SPYPJ) and
publications incentives (Scopus and WoS) by RIMC will remain. At present, we are in the process to introduce new publications incentives.
We will start with giving incentives to authors who manage to publish articles in WoS (Q1) journal. We also will introduce research scheme
to match the grant especially when it involved the international and private sector’s funding.

Learn, Lead & Legacy

A Personal Point of View on
Technology

By : Assoc. Prof Dr. Haim Hilman
Abdullah

By : Dr. Mohamad Faizal Ahmad Zaidi

A contemporary business environment requires its own antennae
tuned to acquire and enhance its knowledge. Therefore, an
average organization with great degree of discipline will survive
or grow as projected. Nothing extraordinary will be recorded by
ordinary organization. Extraordinary commitment to learn and
understand internal and external environments would enable an
organization to compete better.
However, if we wanted to see extraordinary results then we need
to set very ambitious goals, which can be described as Big, Hairy,
and Audacious Goals (BHAGs). Many define BHAGs as impossible,
unrealistic, or ‘crazy’. For instance, a goal to position an organization
operating locally to the world’s top 100 in its respective field within
10 years would certainly make average people describe such
organization as nonsense or ‘crazy’.
However, do we really need to pay attention to those who always
say no to something uncommon to them? The answer is certainly
no. Tony Fernandes at Air Asia, Jack Ma at Alibaba.com, Richard
Branson at Virgin and Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook are among
the few people whom can be described as upholding BHAGs.
They will not be who they are today if they think, act or behave
like ordinary leaders. Achieving extraordinary results require
extraordinary commitment, discipline and drive to become the
best. Above all, the CEO or Managing Director must lead and
portray the extraordinary attributes.
Dare to be to be different, innovative, creative and willing to take
risk are among major criteria of organizations to make BHAGs
possible. Specifically, differentiation would make competition
irrelevant, innovation and creativity will enhance chances to create
differentiation and willing to take risk will make BHAGs possible.
The ability to act accordingly to all those criteria would enable
an organization to set its’ BHAGs. Every ambitious organization
regardless of its size should opt for BHAGs. Success will enable the
organization to lead others or specifically become among the
major player in its market segment, with improving market shares
and position.
Every ambitious leader will try his best to make sure people
summarize him as a great leader. In other words, it is about legacy. A
true leader will not only concerned with the financial performance
but other important aspects which will affect its performance such
as culture, tradition and DNA of his organization. A great leader is
a person who upholds the concept of Learn, Lead, and Legacy.

I could not recall the first time I heard the word technology. One
thing for sure, it has been around long enough that I do not bother
to know. I have so far devoted myself to learn how to manage
technology for no less than a decade and end up having a career
teaching others on managing technology. Ironically, the more I talk
about technology, the more I questioned myself what technology
is really about. Honestly, I found it hard to describe technology in
a way to please everyone. I personally think there is any definition
that really fits all facets of technology and explained them in a
way easy to digest, particularly by the general public.
During my early years studying technology, my lecturer said it is
enough to describe technology as “the ways we do thing”. I really
have a hard time to understand the definition as it sounded as if
everything is related to technology. It is indeed. What more, we
use technology as we find logics behind it. For instance, we ride
vehicles rather than walk on foot as it is the faster way to reach
a destination; we send messages using email instead of walking
to the post office as it is the most convenient way; and we use
microwave oven instead of firewood as it is the safest way to
prepare our meals. Nevertheless, walking with shoes, writing letters
with a pen, and setting the fire with matches are also technologies
of themselves.
To some, it would sound trivial to discuss the term technology as
it is, but the technology that we claim to know could be just on
the tip of an iceberg. As such, it would be interesting to question
what technology is all about. Simply by googling the net we could
find hundreds if not thousands of definitions of technology. Without
denying the contributions of those definitions, just reading the
definitions could not help the readers to immensely understand the
true meaning of technology.
Looking back to what my lecturer’s definition of technology as “the
ways we do thing”, it becomes apparent that we accomplish all
sort things with the assistance of technology. Relatively, it would be
difficult to use our bare hands to accomplish something even with
little complexity to achieve quality level near to the machines. Even
a simple handicraft product will need basic tools to achieve some
level of esthetical values. Consequently, it would be impossible to
accomplish something with the high level of complexity with bare
hands, to some extent.
A quick look at the timeline of human civilisation has shown
different eras were identified according to technological progress,
i.e., stone age, copper and bronze ages, iron age, and all the
way to the industrial revolution, information and communication
technology (ICT), and etc. Accordingly, it is the early civilisations
brought us through the discovery of technological artefacts. For
instance, Egypt is known for the great pyramids of Giza, and China
for the Great Walls. With the benefits of ICT, all of this information
can be easily googled through the net.
So, now do we have a clear definition of technology? Not really
there yet. So far we could only associate technology as a tool for
assisting us to accomplish tasks. There is nothing wrong with this
statement, but as mentioned earlier, it only represents the tip of an
iceberg that can be clearly seen from the surface of an ocean,
while a larger portion of it is pretty much unseen underwater.

Gamification in Teaching and
Learning

University Ratings as
Complementary to University
Rankings

By : Dr. Narentheren Kaliappen

By : Dr. Shahrudin Awang Nor

In selecting the best or most suitable universities for prospective
students, many thought of using the university rankings. University
rankings of higher education institutions are made of combinations
of many factors. Rankings are mostly carried out by newspapers,
magazines, websites, independent body or government agencies.
In addition to the overall ranking of institutions, there are ranking by
faculty and subject too. Most rankings consider the measures of
wealth, research, publication, academic peer review, industries
peer review, students, and several other criteria. Some institutions
are ranked in within a single state, while some others are ranked
worldwide. There are a lot of arguments about the usefulness and
accuracy of rankings due to methodologies being used but the
popularity of ranking is keep growing.

Gamifying your classrooms...Is it possible?
This is an important question that needs to be addressed in order
to develop digital strategies in teaching and learning. Computer
games have long been a much-loved living room leisure among
teenagers. In modern years, it has been used to impact teaching
and learning process. For example, Minecraft has been used in
more than 7,000 classrooms in over 40 countries. Here are some of
the good examples of gamification in e-learning; Classcraft, Anki,
Memrise, Kahoot and etc.
Using video games or other gaming elements motivates students
and engage them more in the learning process. Besides,
gamification approach also helps students learn with fun and
keep them entertained and connected.

It is true that the position of a university in ranking is contribute
significantly to the popularity of the university. In general, there are
three most influential university rankings and they are Quacquarelli
Symonds (QS) World University Rankings, Times Higher Education
World University Rankings (THE), and Academic Ranking of World
Universities (ARWU). Besides rankings, rating has become another
important tool in measuring quality of a university. The rating
system can assist the universities name through a much broader
range of criteria. The goals are to enable institutions to be visible
and recognized their excellence.

When the instructor brings these gamicification concepts into
teaching and learning, it inspires and motivates students to
challenge new ideas in a positive way. The instructors can use
this game based approach in diverse ways; problem-solving,
motivation and expressing concepts in mathematics, history, art
and literature.

So far, QS is the leading body for university ratings. It is known by
QS Stars University Ratings. It allows universities to see their own
potentials in depth. In other words, QS Stars is a rating system
which can help students to get a better overview of an institution’s
qualities. The rating system can act as an additional tool to give
deeper information of the individual institutions. The QS Stars
rating in particular is derived from a score of eight performance
criteria such as the quality of research, teaching quality, graduate
employability, internationalization, university infrastructure and
facilities, innovation and knowledge transfer, social and civic
engagement, and special criteria. Universities can be evaluated
to get from one star to five stars, or five stars plus. Specifically, five
stars plus are for the truly exceptional and outstanding institutions.

Without doubt, this approach assists the instructors to do flips
classroom method, which really challenge the students’ ability.
While game-based learning is fairly new to most educational
systems across the world, but it is sure that the teachers and
students stand to gain from it.
In this modern era, students are very advanced and learn
almost everything via internet with just a click. This puts learning
institutions at a great disadvantage where educators have to be
really creative in creating the lessons that could offer students
experiences they can’t get at home. Therefore, one of the most
effective approaches would be a well-designed game.

There are many advantages of good ratings for the institutions
such as improving its international recognition and at the same
time attract more students, increase in web presence and media
awareness, and also as an auditing tool to improve the institution’s
performance. Moreover, it also provides the lower-ranking
and unlisted institutions the opportunity to get the attention
from prospect students, and to be visible for their distinction. In
conclusion, QS Stars University Ratings is an evaluation system, and
it is different from university rankings. It acts as complementary to
rankings. Nonetheless, the service comes with certain amount of
fees for the initial audit as well as for the annual license. In Malaysia,
only seven universities have participated in the QS Stars University
Ratings with only one university obtained five stars.

By gamifing your classroom, you provide exciting incentives for
learning while also promoting teamwork, healthy competition,
and a safe, fun classroom culture. Based on European Commission
In 2020, almost all jobs would require a high level of technical
competencies. So, this game based teaching and learning
approach will assist the students in developing technical skills and
assist them to grab the opportunity in the job market and reduce
graduate unemployment.

English Language
Acquisition

Benefits of Exercise

By : Lieyana Teo Mohd Zulkifli Teo

By : Mohd Farhan Ismail

Depending on one’s level of intelligence, one may be able
to acquire a new language without any guidance, simply by
imitation and repetition; one can simply have the knowledge of
a new language. Sufficient exposure towards the language can
promote language acquisition subconsciously. For instance, by
watching long hours of Japanese or Korean movies and dramas
can subconsciously engage one with the language and by
imitating the language use, one can acquire the language.

As we know exercise is good for us. What you may not know is
just how good or exactly what qualifies as exercise. A deluge of
studies have documented the health benefits of exercise. What’s
impressive about the research, aside from the sheer volume, is
the number of conditions exercise seems to prevent, ameliorate,
or delay. We’re used to hearing about exercise fending off heart
attacks.

Even though they may be regularly exposed to English drama
series and other English based programs on television, they could
simply turn themselves off, for example, not hearing the language
and only understand the show by reading the Malay or Mandarin
subtitles provided. Furthermore, they do not feel the need to make
use of the language or engage in any activities that used the
language.

If you’re physically active, your heart gets trained to beat slower
and stronger, so it needs less oxygen to function well; your arteries
get springier, so they push your blood along better; and your levels
of “good” HDL cholesterol go up. It’s also not much of a surprise
that physical activity helps prevent diabetes. Muscles that are
used to working stay more receptive to insulin, the hormone that
ushers blood sugar into cells, so in fit individuals blood sugar levels
aren’t as likely to creep up.

The standard of English in Malaysia has declined due to the fact
that many students, specifically, in the rural areas do not feel the
need to study or learn the language. This has led to their poor
proficiency in English Language even though they were exposed
to the language since they were young; from kindergarten to
Form 5 or 6 at secondary level. So, who is at fault? Instead of
pointing fingers, we Malaysians should ask ourselves how can we
work together to improve the matter. This phenomenon of poor
proficiency in English should be handled professionally and need
to be done in stages.
As we can see, students come from different background in
Malaysia and there are in some places where English is a total
foreign language even though English is actually the second
language in the country. The exposure of English is very low in
some places and this makes it hard for the students in rural areas
especially to understand some terms and even get the common
sense of the English language.
Furthermore, in Malaysia there are some people who disregard
the importance of English and highlighted that as a Malaysian,
one should be learning more Bahasa Melayu and have good
competencies in Bahasa Melayu. It somehow has reached the
mind of the children and some even think the same way in English
language learning. These scenarios have slowly corrupted the
mind of the children nowadays.
In addition, parents too were not involved in their children’s process
of learning and they are not aware of the matter that their children
have no interest in English or the children are not doing well in
English language. This has also led to the lack of proficiency and
competencies in English language among Malaysian students.

But exercise as a soldier in the war against cancer? It seems to be,
and on several fronts: breast, colon, endometrial, perhaps ovarian.
Some research suggests that it takes quite a lot of exercise to make
a difference: four to seven hours of moderate to vigorous activity a
week. Three studies have found that if you’ve had colon cancer or
breast cancer, physical activity reduces the chances of it coming
back.
To top things off, moving the body seems to help the brain.
Several studies have found that exercise can reduce the
symptoms of depression, and it changes the brain in ways similar
to antidepressant medications. In old age, physical activity may
delay the slide of cognitive decline into dementia, and even once
that process has started, exercise can improve certain aspects of
thinking.
Most evidence suggests that the choice of the kind of activity is far
less important than whether to be active at all. About half of adult
Americans don’t meet one of the most oft-cited guidelines, which
calls for 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity (a fast walking
pace) most days of the week and you can accumulate that total
in bouts of 10 to 15 minutes. Clearly some of us are less athletic
than others and some unathletic individuals were simply born that
way.
Twin studies suggest that about half of the difference in physical
activity among people is probably inherited. And researchers are
making headway in identifying particular genes that may influence
how we respond to physical exertion. But genetic explanations
for behaviors like exercising only go so far. Many other influences
come into play: family, neighborhood, cultural attitudes, historical
circumstances. Research has shown, not surprisingly, that active
children are more likely to have parents who encouraged them
to be that way.

Kitchen of the Future
: Cooking Goes Extreme

Kami warga kerja Institut Pengurusan Kualiti
UUM Sentiasa Mengamalkan Amalan 5S
Yang Membawa Kepada:

By : Siti Khairunnisa Mohd Nor

Future kitchen will be located at all locations on Earth plus beyond
the planet’s atmosphere as well. So, let’s take a look at some of
the futuristic kitchen features that will make you are always want to
enter your kitchen and do love cooking so much.

1. SISIH

a. Penjimatan ruang
b. Tempat kerja lebih selamat
c. Suasana kerja lebih selesa
a. Space saving
b. Safer workplace
c. Comfortable work environment

Firstly, by using smart phone we will be able to check the supplies
in the refrigerator or cupboard and order more from the grocery
store. Smart refrigerator can diagnose nutritional needs with an
interactive 3D display. In the future also, we will not need to worry
about the presence of pests like rats and cockroaches because all
around the house being installed with small electricity that prevent
the pests to enter.

2. SAPU

a. Masa membersih lebih pantas
b. Kos kerosakan peralatan rendah
c. Moral kakitangan tinggi
a. Faster cleaning time
b. Reduce equipment damage cost
c. High morale staff

Beside that, by using barcode or RFID can help in alerting residence
when food in the kitchen, especially in the refrigerator or cupboard
is near their expiration date. Futhermore, the kitchen cabinet also
be improvised in the future in order to design based on kitchen
utensils and food that can be stored. They will add a sensor to
alert residence which part is suitable for certain utensils based
on the size and weight. The material design in the future is more
lightweight and compact. The size will be reduced in order to save
the space, but enough to store all the kitchen equipment.

3. SUSUN

a. Masa pencarian yang pantas
b. Proses kerja lebih pantas
c. Selamat di tempat kerja
a. Quicker searching time
b. Faster work process
c. Safe at workplace

In future, heavenly when you are cooking and your daughter
suddenly crying in the living room you can just leave the meal
without worry because your fry pan will turn itself off when your meal
is cooked. The part that I love the most is when your equipment
such as oven and fridge can suggest recipes based on what we
have. So we can save our time to search about the recipe and
worried about ingredient that are not enough to prepare the dish.
A small computer is installed in the kitchen to make a diary of what
we have eaten for a week or a month. With a smart software install,
it can tell us the calories of each food that we make. If we connect
with the internet, we can chat with friends and share recipes of
delicious dishes.

4. SERAGAM

a. Kecekapan proses kerja meningkat
b. Rungutan pelanggan rendah
c. Produktiviti kakitangan meningkat
a. Increase work process efficiency
b. Lower customer complaints
c. Increase staff productivity

To increase security in the kitchen and avoid from the fire, the home
control system can detect excessive gas that harm the house.
On detecting a large amount of gas, the gas sensor immediately
instructs the gas valve actuator node to turn off the valve using
its relay switch module. In this situation, there is no latent time to
exchange commands with the home control system. The gas
sensor autonomously operates, and later informs the home control
system.

5. SENTIASA AMAL

a. Disiplin kakitangan positif & inovatif
b. Budaya kerja berpasukan tinggi
c. Memperolehi sijil 5S MPC
a. Positive & innovative staff discipline
b. Teamwork
c. Obtain 5S MPC certification

Finally, I can conclude that they are many inventions nowadays in
order to meet human needs in a future. There are a lot of research
and innovation has been done basically on smart homes to
enhance our living environment. So just tap your chest and ask its
pleasure. You can choose the best for your life.

PELAN STRATEGIK
FASA 2 (2016-2020) BAKAL MELONJAK UUM
KE ARENA

ANTARABANGSA

27 Januari 2016 (Rabu) - Menelusuri kejayaan yang telah dicapai dalam Pelan Strategik Universiti Utara
Malaysia (UUM) Fasa 1, tahun 2016 dilihat sebagai tahun untuk melonjakkan UUM ke arena antarabangsa
menerusi Pelan Strategik UUM Fasa 2 (2016-2020). Kejayaan-kejayaan tersebut menjadi platform kepada universiti
untuk terus mengorak langkah memartabatkan UUM di persada antarabangsa selepas mencapai pelbagai
kejayaan di peringkat nasional.
Dimulakan dengan imbasan 2015, Majlis Amanat Naib Canselor 2016 mengimbau pencapaian yang dikecapi
universiti dari semasa ke semasa dan Naib Canselor, Prof. Dato’ Seri Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak melihat tahun
ini merupakan tahun mencabar bagi universiti, bukan sahaja dari aspek kewangan, malah rintangan yang harus
ditempuhi untuk menuju ke puncak sebagai Universiti Pengurusan Terkemuka bukan sahaja di peringkat nasional
tetapi antarabangsa.
Menurutnya, universiti mempunyai strategi tersendiri untuk membangunkan UUM sebagai sebuah kampus yang
hebat mengikut acuan sendiri dan strategi yang dirancang ini adalah mengikut kedudukan dan keadaan semasa
universiti yang bermula dengan Pelan Strategi UUM Fasa 1 (2011-2015). “Melangkah tahun 2016, kita akan mula
fokus dengan Pelan Strategik UUM Fasa 2 yang terdapat empat teras utama iaitu Teras 1 (Mempertingkatkan
Kesarjanaan dan Pengantarabangsaan); Teras 2 (Pembangunan Modal Insan dan Pengurusan Bakat); Teras 3
(Membangun Mahasiswa Secara Holistik) dan Teras 4 (Menjana Kekayaan).
“Jadi, untuk melaksanakan pelan strategik ini, kita menggariskan enam (6) Bidang Keberhasilan Utama (KRA)
iaitu penyelidikan dan inovasi berimpak tinggi, pengajaran dan pembelajaran berimpak tinggi, pelajar berprestasi
tinggi, modal insan dan institusi cemerlang, penjanaan kekayaan secara optimum dan strategik serta prasarana
dan persekitaran ilmu yang kondusif,” katanya di hadapan warga UUM di Dewan Mu’adzam Shah, pagi tadi.
Dalam Pelan Strategik UUM Fasa 1 (2011-2015) dahulu memberikan fokus di peringkat nasional yang meletakkan
matlamat untuk menjadikan universiti ini sebagai universiti pengurusan di peringkat nasional, malah UUM turut
memperoleh pencapaian kira-kira 65 peratus dalam pelan strategik tersebut dari segi KPI.
Naib Canselor berkata, UUM telah menunjukkan peningkatan dalam bilangan staf akademik dengan PhD, bilangan
staf antarabangsa dan pelajar antarabangsa, peningkatan dalam dana penyelidikan, pertambahan penyelidik
utama, hasil perundingan dan penjanaan kekayaan sepanjang tempoh 2011 hingga 2015. Tambah beliau, untuk
membawa UUM ke peringkat antarabangsa bukan sesuatu yang mudah, malah ia lebih sukar dan mencabar
apabila hendak menuju ke puncak yang mana perlu melalui pelbagai halangan, justeru Pelan Strategik Fasa 2
dirancang begitu rapi termasuk berdepan dengan kekangan kewangan lagi. Katanya, semua warga kampus perlu
bersedia dalam menghadapi kesukaran dan kesusahan sebelum mencapai kesenangan.

The Vice-Chancellor’s Annual Address 2016 opened with a recollection of achievements attained by the university
and the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato’ Seri Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak, foresee that this year would be a challenging
year for the university, not only from the financial aspect but also other challenges that we must face in order to
become Eminent Management University; not only recognised at the national level but also at the international
level.
Prof. Dato’ Seri added that, UUM employs its own strategies to develop the university as an outstanding campus and
the approaches are tailored to concur with the standings and the current circumstances of the university, which was
set in motion by the UUM Strategic Plan Phase 1 (2011-2015). “In 2016, we will put our focus on Phase 2 of the UUM
Strategic Plan which emphasised the four core thrusts i.e. Thrust 1 (Enhancing Scholarship and Internationalisation);
Thrust 2 (Developing Human Capital and Talent Management); Thrust 3 (Holistic Development of Students) and
Thrust 4 (Generating/Creating Wealth). “Therefore, in order to facilitate the execution of this strategic plan, we have
outlined six (6) Key Result Areas (KRA) which include “research and high-impact innovations, high-impact teaching
and learning activities, high performance students, exceptional human capital and institution, optimum and strategic
wealth creation as well as conducive infrastructure and learning environment,” said Prof. Dato’ Seri in his annual
address to the staff of UUM at Mu’adzam Shah Hall.

“Dalam amanat yang dibentangkan dua tahun lalu, saya menekankan kepentingan ‘Sense of Urgency’ dalam
menjalankan kerja atau perancangan di universiti tetapi tidak banyak perubahan yang dilihat, sebaliknya warga
UUM cenderung disuruh atau ditanya baru hendak bergerak atau melakukan tugas selepas diarahkan. “Kita
sepatutnya perlu cepat bertindak bagi mengelak peluang diambil orang lain. UUM sudah berusia 30 tahun dan
telah melalui banyak perubahan, malah dalam merancang Pelan Strategik ini juga kita perlu ‘revised’ semula visi
dan misi supaya ada penambahbaikkan,” katanya lagi. Ujar beliau, pada tahun ini juga, universiti akan membuat
penjenamaan semula dua pusat pengajian, selain memperkenalkan pusat pengajian dan program baharu.

UUM Strategic Plan Phase 1 (2011-2015) strived to establish this university as an Eminent Management University
at the national level. UUM has succeeded to attain 65 percent of the KPI listed in Phase 1 of the plan. UUM has
also demonstrated a steady increase in the number of academic staff with PhD, the number of international staff
and international students as well as an increase in research funding, increase in the number of the principal
researchers, revenue from consultation activities and wealth creation over the period of 2011 to 2015. He added,
the challenges and obstacles in setting the path for UUM to be recognised at the international level are certainly not
a walk in the park. We will face obstacles and challenges in our journey before we achieve any level of success. As
a consequence, Phase 2 of the UUM Strategic Plan has been meticulously planned and prepared; taking into account
the financial constraints faced by the university. Thus, the campus community must be prepared to encounter
difficulties and hardships before achieving the eventual success.

Tambahnya, selain itu, bagi memperkasakan lagi kedudukan UUM di peringkat nasional dan antarabangsa,
universiti meletakkan sasaran menjelang 2020 dalam QS World University Rankings untuk menjadi ‘World Top 200’,
‘Asia Top 50’, ‘SEA Top 10’, ‘Malaysia Top 5’ dan ‘OYAGSB-World Top 100’ (Business School) serta memperkukuhkan
Pusat Penyelidikan Kecemerlangan (Penyelidikan) dengan penubuhan dan pengukuhan ‘niche area’ di UUM COB,
UUM CAS dan UUM COLGIS.Beliau turut berkongsi intipati Amanat Tahun Baharu oleh Menteri Pendidikan Tinggi,
Dato’ Seri Idris Jusoh yang menekankan tentang ‘Flexible Education’, kedudukan universiti awam dalam QS
University Rankings, i su dan cabaran yang dihadapi pelajar dan pensyarah pada 2016.

“In my annual address two years ago, I emphasised on the magnitude of the ‘Sense of Urgency’ in carrying out
duties or completing tasks at the university but to this day, I do not see much evidence of change. Many staff still
need to be instructed and closely monitored when performing their duties. “We should be quick to act and react.
UUM was established more than 30 years ago and the university has experienced numerous transformations. In
this strategic plan, we have taken a proactive approach to improve the mission and vision of the university so that
we can change for the better,” he added. As a result, the university has taken a bold step to rebrand two schools as
well as introducing new school and academic programmes.

Pada majlis sama, Naib Canselor turut menyampaikan anugerah KPI, anugerah-anugerah kecemerlangan 20142015 dan merasmikan nama baharu Pusat Pengajian Pembangunan Sosial (SSD) iaitu Pusat Pengajian Psikologi
Gunaan, Dasar dan Kerja Sosial (SAPSP), seterusnya melancarkan UUM Mobile untuk kegunaan staf.

Furthermore, in order to strengthen UUM standings at the national and international levels, the university has set an
explicit target that by the year 2020, UUM aims to be listed among the ‘World Top 200’ in the QS World University
Rankings, ‘Asia Top 50’, ‘SEA Top 10’, ‘Malaysia Top 5’ and ‘OYAGSB-World Top 100’ (Business School) in addition to
intensify the effort to improve on the Research Centre of Excellence by instituting and strengthening the niche areas
at UUM COB, UUM CAS and UUM COLGIS. Prof. Dato’ Seri also shared the overview of the New Year Address by the
Minister of Higher Education, Dato’ Seri Idris Jusoh. The Minister of Higher Education drew attention to the concept
of ‘Flexible Education’, the rankings of public universities in the QS University Rankings, in addition to the issues and
challenges encountered by students and lecturers in 2016.

PHASE 2 OF UUM STRATEGIC PLAN (2016-2020) FUELS UUM TO
SUCCEED IN THE INTERNATIONAL ARENA

if we continue to consistently innovate, we will certainly be
successful like them someday.
“Winning or not, is no longer a yardstick, on the contrary we
want to restore the honour of the Malays and the University
has the responsibility to prove to the rest of the world that the
Malays are not weak and lazy. This is because our University is

KREATIVITI G-HARD MENCURI HATI JURI UNTUK
BERGELAR JUARA KIK 4
18 Februari 2016 (Khamis) - Kreativiti Kumpulan G-Hard dari
Perpustakaan Sultanah Bahiyah (PSB) telah melayakkan
mereka merangkul gelaran juara Mini Konvensyen Kumpulan
Inovatif dan Kreatif (KIK) Peringkat Universiti Utara Malaysia
(UUM) 2016 yang berlangsung selama dua hari di Dewan
Seminar A, Pusat Konvensyen UUM. Kumpulan G-Hard yang
dianggotai tujuh ahli termasuk seorang fasilitator berjaya
menewaskan sembilan pasukan lain yang mewakili Pusat
Tanggungjawab (PTJ) masing-masing bagi merebut gelaran
juara dengan membawa pulang hadiah berupa wang tunai
berjumlah RM2,000, piala pusingan dan sijil penghargaan
pada majlis penutupan petang semalam.
Ketua kumpulan, Norhardi Saad berkata, mereka yang
mengetengahkan tajuk ‘Kelewatan Mengaktifkan ID Pelajar
Baharu di Perpustakaan Sultanah Bahiyah’ tidak sangka akan
bergelar juara pada Mini Konvensyen KIK tahun ini. “Selama
sebulan kami dikuarantin semata-mata ingin menjana idea
dalam penyelesaian masalah yang dihadapi oleh staf PSB
ketika mengaktifkan kad pelajar di PSB. “Kami juga tidak
menduga dengan tajuk yang dibawa tidak kelihatan gah,
berjaya menambat hati juri,” katanya.
Norhardi berkata, pihaknya sering menghadapi masalah
untuk mengaktifkan ID pelajar memandangkan ia mengambil
masa yang lama sehingga mencecah selama tiga hari.
Katanya, sebelum ini mereka terpaksa mengaktifkan kad
pelajar dengan menggunakan kaedah manual yang mana
staf perlu mengambil data pelajar secara terlebih dahulu
dan mengadakan bengkel bersama pelajar baharu. “Hal ini
menyebabkan kelewatan dan banyak membuang masa yang
mana sepatutnya tempoh untuk mengaktifkan ID tersebut
hanya mengambil masa selama 30 saat setiap orang dan
semua urusan dapat disiapkan sekurang-kurangnya dalam
tempoh sehari sahaja.
“Kini, masa dan tenaga dapat dijimatkan dan masalah
kelewatan terutama membabitkan pelajar baharu pada sesi
kemasukan bulan September dan Februari sudah dapat diatasi
dengan menggunakan sistem yang lebih efektif,” ujarnya.
Bakal mewakili UUM ke peringkat kebangsaan, Norhardi
berkata, sebagai persediaan pasukannya akan memperbaiki
kekurangan yang terdapat dalam projek tersebut sehingga
mencapai kriteria yang ditetapkan. Majlis penutup Mini
Konvensyen KIK telah disempurnakan oleh Timbalan Naib
Canselor (Penyelidikan dan Inovasi), Prof Dr Noor Azizi Ismail
dan hadir sama Pengarah IPQ, Prof Madya Dr Haim Hilman
Abdullah. Prof Dr Noor Azizi berkata, amalan inovasi dan
kreativiti bukan sahaja mampu menggalakkan daya saing
sesebuah organisasi, malah memberi nilai tambah untuk terus
bersaing dalam menuju kejayaan dan kemajuan.
Ujar beliau, dalam Islam sendiri mementingkan kreativiti dan
inovasi untuk menghasilkan perbezaan yang mampu memberi
nilai tambah yang tinggi demi kecemerlangan perkhidmatan
yang disampaikan. “Saya berharap semua kumpulan dapat
menggunakan platform ini untuk mendalami ilmu baharu
tentang inovasi dan kreativiti serta bergerak dalam satu
kumpulan ke arah menyokong hasrat murni organisasi,”
katanya. Tempat kedua Mini Konvensyen KIK 4 telah dimenangi
Kumpulan Aura dari IPQ yang menerima hadiah berupa wang
tunai bernilai RM1,500 berserta sijil, manakala tempat ketiga
dimenangi oleh Kumpulan Energetic juga dari IPQ yang
menerima hadiah berupa wang tunai bernilai RM1,000 dan
sijil. Anugerah Terbaik bagi kategori Fasilitator dan Inovasi
diungguli oleh Kumpulan Energetic dan kategori Persembahan
dimenangi oleh Kumpulan Aura.
Mini Konvensyen KIK 2016 merupakan anjuran kali keempat
oleh IPQ bertujuan menggalakkan budaya inovatif dan kreatif
serta memberi peluang kepada warga UUM untuk menggilap
kebolehan dan kompetensi diri. Setiap pasukan telah dinilai
oleh juri-juri KIK dari Perbadanan Produktiviti Malaysia (MPC),
Wilayah Utara dan Institut Tadbiran Negara (INTAN), Kampus
Wilayah Utara. Pada majlis itu juga turut disampaikan anugerah
