Short welcome note (Issue 4)

Welcome note

Our students are the ambassadors of the University's knowledge. As professors, there is no greater joy than to see our students making use of the knowledge they learned at the University in an attempt to make positive changes in society, in big and small ways.

The feature stories in this issue highlight the efforts of our students in knowledge exchange. These examples go beyond the concept of service. They illustrate not only our students' passion in serving society, but also their commitment to applying their knowledge gained at the University to benefit different communities locally and in the region.

In the front-page article, you will also see how we encourage our research postgraduate students to develop skills to communicate their research to the community. This is important because we believe that some of their research discoveries will make an impact in the future and they should be able to make the public understand the significance of their work in order to maximize the impact.
