Our sincere appreciation to the 210 industry practitioners from 181 industries for their contribution to the successful commencement of UMT’s Industry in The Classroom programme - UMT's new initiative in enriching students learning experience as well as their experiential learning. The invited industrial practitioners were from various Multinational Corporations, GLCs, SMEs, Government Bodies and also local entrepreneurs.  
All of them were invited to teach and impart their knowledge and valuable real-world experience related to topics of 283 courses/subjects offered, and this encompassed 63% of the courses offered in the past semester.
The thought and input from the industry were crucial for the students to have better understanding between the theory in the textbook and practice in the industry. This programme also exposed the students to the industries for their future career. By the September 2018/19 semester, all of UMT’s 27 academic programmes are expected to incorporate Industry in the Classroom by having at least three hours lecture from an industry practitioner on related course topics.
UMT would like to extend its sincere appreciation to all the 210 industrial practitioners for their invaluable contribution to UMT’s Industry in The Classroom – Semester II 2017/2018.


In line with UMT’s Industry in the Classroom programme, Dato’ Abibullah bin Haji Samsuddin, Director General of Yayasan Pembangunan Ekonomi Islam Malaysia (YaPEIM) was invited to give a talk entitled “Sustainable Management according to Shari’ah through YaPEIM’s perspective” on 28th March 2018. 
At the beginning of the talk Dato’ Abibullah bin Haji Samsuddin, who is also the Adjunct Professor for Bachelor of Management (Policy and Social Environment) programme, focused on describing the core business of YaPEIM and how YaPEIM manages their multi-focussed businesses. He also explained the management according to Shari’ah values and objectives. A question and answer session allowed the second year and final year students of the Bachelor of Management (Policy and Social Environment) programme to interact with the speaker.
The programme was valuable for the students to increase their knowledge, and also for them as they begin planning for their career after graduation. The Industry in the Classroom is undeniably a way for students to go beyond academics, to develop insights, and learn real industrial operations and working environment.


On 25th to 28th March 2018, Institute of Tropical Aquaculture (AKUATROP) held a workshop on Pathology of Aquatic Animals at its Histology Laboratory.

Fish histopathology is important for disease diagnostics and understanding the host-pathogen interaction.  Participants were provided histopathology slides, so that they could view and discuss about it in small groups while being supervised by our pathologist, Associate Professor Dr Marina Hassan. Besides this, the participants also had the chance to learn about preparing histology slides and staining. They also learnt about the special stain technique to observe certain diseases. This workshop, which is suitable for beginners to advanced participants, attracted both local and international participants and provided a great networking opportunity between researchers.
