UUM ONLINE: Once again, Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) has maintained its position in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings by Subject 2022 for the subject of Computer Science.


Prof. Dr. Haim Hilman Abdullah, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) who is performing the duties of Vice-Chancellor, expressed gratitude for the listing despite being in the same position of 601-800 as last year.

"Congratulations and thank you to all UUM denizens, particularly to the School of Computing (SOC) led by the Dean, Prof. Dr. Huda Ibrahim and the School of Multimedia and Communication Technology (SMMTC) by the Dean, Associate Prof. Ts. Dr. Sobihatun Nur Abdul Salam on the success.
"This is a proud achievement for the university and it should be further expanded so that other courses taught at UUM can be listed. We should not rest on our laurels; instead, continue to strive to strengthen the university's reputation in the eyes of the world," he advised.
He stated that it was the obligation of all parties to play a role in positioning themselves in the best position in each ranking issue that has the potential to be listed.
According to him, no one can stop UUM from becoming the best university not only in the country, but also at the regional and international levels.
He said the key to this success was unity, mutual respect and courage to make changes in order to elevate the university to a higher position, especially in terms of ranking.
"Hopefully, this success and achievement will inspire all of us to do our best not only for the university, but also for the country, as aspired by the Minister of Higher Education, Dato' Seri Dr. Noraini Ahmad, who called on all institutions of higher education in Malaysia to strive to improve the excellence of their respective universities," he said.
